It’s been another successful season for the Burngreave Saints under 10s who marked their debut campaign in the Sheffield and District Junior League with an impressive 6th place and a move to a new venue.
Following promotion in 2006, the boys have wasted little time finding their feet with a series of scintillating performances including the defeat of eventual League champions Sheffield Rangers.
The highlight came when the boys played in a tournament in Blackpool, beating 4 out of 5 teams and lifting silverware after a thrilling victory over Castle Park Juniors.
Team secretary, Emma Wilkinson says every game was like a cup final. “The last game of the season was against Sheffield Wednesday Young Owls which was drawn 6-6 – they never say die.”
Already planning for success next season, the club is moving from Petre Street to Parkwood – citing the need for a bigger pitch. The move also compliments their training sessions close by at the Sheffield United Academy, Shirecliffe. Team manager Patrick Black will be taking training during the summer months to which all are welcome.
Trials for the new season are as follows:
17th June, 24th June, 1st July at 11am, Petre Street Playing Fields. All boys under 11, Y6 are welcome.
