Founded on August 10 this year, Ringsfield Raiders Youth is a new football club based in Ringsfield, Beccles. The club has a mixed team of U12 players in school years 6 and 7.
With support from former Canaries stiker Martin, of Derby County although currently on loan at Hull, a spokesman for Ringsfield Raiders Youth said: 'A lot of hard work went in over the summer to ensure the club was FA affiliated in time for the new season. The Raiders are currently in Division 3 of the Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League.
