OVER the course of three weeks the Croft under 10 Reds fought off local competition to become Futsal champions, winning them a major new sponsor.

The yongsters will now go on to the qualifying stages of the South West Regional FA Youth Futsal Cup, held in May, when they are hoping to beat winners from neighbouring counties.

And should their winning streak continue they’ll go on to the national final held in Birmingham on Saturday, June 28.

The success has helped raise their profile among the local community, attracting the support of individuals and businesses alike, including their main sponsor, used car supermarket CarShop Swindon.

Martin Hutchison, Croft under 10 Reds manager, said: “This is an impressive win for us and I’m quietly confident we’ll be able to get much further in the competition, if not win.

“I couldn’t be happier with the team and I would like to thank all the supporters and families, and also CarShop for sponsoring us, and let them know we’re going to do them proud.”

The Croft under 10 Reds are currently looking for players to join the team, and would ask anyone interested to contact
