Match report 26th January 2019:
The under 16s team recently played against Tavistock Community the match started well and after dominating the majority of the first half, SB Frankfort eventually broke the deadlock and were leading by 1-0 at half time. The second half was a muddy battle but the boys worked hard and held on for a well-deserved win. 1-0 final score.
Coach Greg says “I’d like to say a big thank you from myself, my two assistants Ben and Ian and the squad for sponsoring our side. Without the kind sponsorship of local businesses, it would be very difficult to run a side as it can be quite expensive with pitch fees, training facilities, equipment and kits etc. Along with the players seasonal fees this all helps us as a club provide the boys with a positive environment and good facilities to train and play in all while looking good at the same time.”
