Sunday 30th June sees our U17 & U20 team in round 3 of 3 in the Youth Development League, Premier Division at Newport, NP19 4PT.

After the first two rounds the teams are doing really well placed mid table in the league with every chance of progressing to the UK National if they can win at Newport and some other team placings go our way.

They will be in a double header fixture of both divisions with eight other teams:
