A DOWNEND football team is looking for new players after returning to training.
Downend Saints Tigers Under-13s are looking for players who are in Year 8 at secondary school r.
The boys have recently returned to training at the 4G pitch at a Downend Sports Centre, which takes place every Thursday from 7pm-8pm.
Husband and wife coaching duo Martin and Emma Whale have worked hard to design a new training programme as the team starts to play 11-a-side for the new season.
Martin said: “Our players have tried their best to keep their football going over lockdown but it’s now up to us to get them into shape over the next few months.”
Like all clubs the team has to follow new FA guidelines on Covid-19.
Coach Steve Nunley said: “It’s great to be back as a team and training again. We can’t wait for matches to start again in September, fingers crossed.”
Anyone who wants to join the team should contact Steve on 07854 053650.
