Juniors get chance to showcase their skills

They may be tiny in stature, but Pee Wee footballers from Dandy Town and North Village made a big impression ahead of their clubs FA Cup first-round tie at St John's Field.

It was the first time Pee Wee players from the two clubs had showcased their budding skills on such a grand stage, and they took full advantage of the rare opportunity.

Village ultimately came out 4-3 victors in an evenly fought contest that kept fans on the edge of their seat.

“It was a great opportunity for the youngsters to participate in front of the FA Cup match between North Village and Dandy Town,” Cal Blankendal, the North Village youth technical director, said.

“Both sets of those youngsters would be there to support their Premier Division teams and to have the opportunity to play in front of their heroes, family and friends was a very exciting experience for them.

“I want to thank the managers from Dandy Town and North Village for making it happen because it was their idea and decision.”

Given the positive feedback from the match, Dandy Town and North Village are now keen to have their Pee Wees play in front of more Premier Division fixtures throughout the remainder of the season.

“I think there was supposed to be a match before last weekend's game between Dandy Town and North Village,” Blankendal said. “But due to the inclement weather it was not able to take place.”
