“One this year was Bilsthorpe United under-12s football team., a progressive club with a team of coaches trying to give opportunities to lads in our area. They finished third in their league and are due to play in a cup final.

“For the management team, this is just the beginning. They plan to develop other age groups, with a hope they can get a girls’ team up and running. For these plans, they need more coaches and a bigger support network.

“The Lions have and hopefully will continue to support them, but it is expensive. Kits, ground rents, grass cutting all cost, so anyone who would like to help, please contact me.

“We are proud of our support, why not join us to continue their journey.”
