A NEW junior football team is focusing on teaching their players all aspects of the beautiful game.
Alvechurch Lions under-6s are in their first year in the Central Warwickshire League. Coaches at the club are FA accredited and CRB checked as well as trained in first aid.
The team have also received sponsorship from local companies Viking Boxing and Fitness, Mansell Motorsports and T and R Sports.
Next Saturday, coaches from the Lions will be taking on Headless Cross representatives at Lye Meadow in a fund-raising match (2pm ko).
Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for children.
Anybody interested in joining can attend training sessions at Hopwood Community Centre on Tuesdays (6pm to 7pm) and Saturdays (9.30 am and 11am) or can call Wes Newman on 07957 123431.
