A Shirley junior football team are in need of a goalkeeper after theirs left - to go up front!

A Shirley junior football team are in need of a goalkeeper after theirs left - to go up front!

So good was Freddie Anderson in front of goal for Leafield Athletic, his manager decided to take him away from stopping the goals to scoring them.

The move has however left under-8’s manager Darren Swann with a last minute dilemma - and a gaping hole at the back.

Darren has been searching for a goalkeeper to step into Freddie’s shoes - well, gloves - all preseason but without any success so far.

“I’ve been leaving notices wherever I can, but had no luck at all in getting a ‘keeper,” said Darren.

“Freddie’s achieved great success since joining us as a goalie, and through hard work and regular training has improved and will now be playing up front.

“We’ve got a very good squad and a good bunch of lads - we just need a goalie now!”

Any boy who wishes to play for the under-8s must be under eight as of August 31. Call Darren Swann on 07971 566 004 for more details.
