MARKET Rasen Town has a new football team.

Coaches Karen Aistrop and Darren Christie completed their FA coaching certificate last year and have signed 12 Children to form the Market Rasen U8 Football Team, who play at Rase Park.

The team started their season in September and have played games both home and away. Results have gone in their favour and they have had a dream start, winning six of their seven games, only losing their first ever game.

During the seven matches the team have scored a total of 35 goals and only conceded eight, keeping a clean sheet in three of the games.

“The boys’ commitment to training and their desire to play well and enjoy the games is outstanding,” said Karen.

“They all play as part of a team and pass the ball really well for their age and are producing some great results.”

The team’s next matches are at home at Rase Park this Sunday, November 20, November 27 and December 4, all with a 2.15pm kick off, so go along and see them in action.

Darren added: “We formed the team over the summer months and secured Perkins George Mawer in the town as our kit sponsors.

“Unfortunately, due to other commitments, we have lost two players and are now looking at recruiting into these positions to strengthen our squad.”

If you have a budding footballer, boy or girl, who was aged either six or seven on August 31 this year, who wishes to join the team, contact Karen Aistrop on 07775 556810 for more details.
