The Story So Far . . .
Farncombe Boys was born. Founders Trish Moorey and Janet Longhurst created two teams for their sons at Under 10 and Under 11. We now have 24 teams playing from Under 7 to Under 16, plus a busy nursery squad!
Funding to pay for league entry was achieved through 'guess the number of buttons in the jar' and a jumble sale which raised £11 and £88 respectively!
The teams play in a Sky Blue Coventry kit.
The Nursery Squad, run by Mike O'Sullivan, first started.
