THE NEWLY-FORMED Redditch Eagles U10s are looking for players as they prepare for the season in the Central Warwickshire Youth Football League.
The FA-affiliated club, who are pictured here at the Baggies Cup in which they were unbeaten in six matches, also have another vital role to play as they have teamed up with the Team Lewis charity organisation.
As part of this, the Eagles are also keen to attract a sponsor to help fund other kit items carrying the logo of Team Lewis, which was set up in memory of young Lewis O'Neill in 2007 who had sadly passed away as a four-year-old the previous year having been diagnosed in 2003 with a rare genetic condition called Leukodystrophy Krabbe.
Team Lewis is now well on the way towards its target of taking the Team Lewis flag to all 92 Football League grounds and now stages all its fund-raising events at Redditch United's Valley Stadium home.
Next on the fund-raising list will be An Evening of Legends event at the Valley featuring ex-Birmingham City favourites Michael Johnson and Geoff Horsfield on Friday, August 31 at 8pm. Tickets go on sale on July 31 from Redditch United on 01527 67450.
Team Lewis will then be raising money for Acorns Children's Hospice on Sunday, September 2 (11am kick-off) when a Team Lewis side takes on a Birmingham City All Stars XI in Lewis' Charity Cup 2012. Admission on the day will cost £5 for adults and £3 for under 16s.
The Redditch Eagles U10s players will be ball boys for this match and more details about the above are available at www.teamlewis06.com.
The Eagles train in Redditch on Wednesdays and Saturdays and anyone interested in joining or offering sponsorship can call Leigh on 07891 730059 or Andy on 07778 515305.
