Story: Steve Richardson

The Crusaders secured 2nd position, a trophy and promotion to the first division, in what was a truly fantastic and very competitive under 18s league.

For part of the season we were at the top, but the team has been plagued by injuries and work commitments which make the final position even more remarkable.

The Crusaders also had a tremendous cup run and took out a couple of Premiere league teams on the way. We were the only team to play in every round up to the Semi Finals. We went out 2 – 1 to a good team but we had goals disallowed that would have put us in the Final.

The team has come to the end of their eligibility to play in the 1st division as it is strictly for under 18's. We are now looking for new players to take on the mantle of the Burngreave Crusaders, without the Canklow tag for the coming season. All potential players need to be over 16 and under 18 by the 1st September 2007.

Eligible players can contact Steve Richardson, Burngreave Community Football Development Officer, Activity Sheffield, on 07810 685 519.

We hope to have a home pitch in Burngreave this season at Parkwood near Shirecliffe, we only await the permission of the Council to get things going.
