MANAGER Frank Hyam has so much confidence in his Under-15 Chantry Warriors side that he feels if he can keep them together for the next six years they will give Ipswich Town a run for their money!

"We have not lost a game yet," said Hyam, who formed that side before the start of this season from boys who previously played for Rivers FC and Ipswich Warriors.

"The boys don't even train together, yet they have played ten games in the Black Tiles League and won them all, with 103 goals scored and only seven against.

"We aim to carry on next season but won't be bringing in any glory-hunters. I have so much confidence in the lads that if they stay together until they are 21 they could give Ipswich Town a run for their money.

"We have no sponsor and joke that we have second-hand players, second-hand managers and second-hand kit. All the team live in the Chantry area."
