MEET the boys of ROLLS-ROYCE UNDER-8S YELLOW, who are looking forward to the new football season more than most.

For Rolls enjoyed an exceptional maiden campaign of friendlies and now can’t wait to test their mettle in competitive matches in the Young Elizabethan League for the first time.

Says coach Mark Connell: “Most of the team was formed from the success of the Rolls-Royce Soccer School where many of the players developed friendships, skills and enjoyment of football.

“Although we started slowly, with a mixture of results, we ended the year on a flying winning streak — thanks to determination and hard work at training.

“We won eight of the 13 games we played and lost only three. I was extremely pleased with their attitude and development.”
