Sawtry Colts form a new Un­der 9 girls team

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

SAWTRY Colts main­tain their mo­men­tum in the world of girls ju­nior foot­ball af­ter an­nounc­ing the launch of an Un­der 9s team.

The Colts will play in the Cam­bridgeshire League next sea­son and those at the club are clearly ex­cited at the prospect of ex­pand­ing the devel­op­ment of the girl’s game in Sawtry.

Club of­fi­cial Simon Den­nett said: “We al­ready have girls teams in other age groups and wanted to give the same chance to the younger age group of play­ing com­pet­i­tive foot­ball in a safe and fun en­vi­ron­ment. There is a big call for it and we are all ex­cited about next sea­son.”

And as a warm-up for the com­ing cam­paign the team took on an Arse­nal girls team last week to see how they match up to the best around.

Den­nett added: “All the girls re­ally en­joyed it and it was good to see the stan­dard of the Arse­nal team.

“And as an up­shot from that and thanks to the con­nec­tions of Steve Pur­nell at the club, two of our coaches have been in­vited down to Arse­nal to watch them train, which will be a great help for us and hope­fully we can take some of what we see on board to help our teams.”

Any­body in­ter­ested in join­ing the new Un­der 9 squad - play­ers must be in Year 2 or 3 at school - can call Steve Pur­nell on 07964 496259 for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.
