The 2006/7 season saw Earl Marshall Under 11s play their first ever 11- a-side matches. Early wins in August’s friendlies ensured a real sense of optimism for the season.

Three disappointing league games followed but the Trophy provided consolation, with a 9-0 victory at the expense of The Hallam Rangers. October 2006 started well with three wins. An easily avoidable defeat against Darfield was a setback but then a run of victories took them up to fifth in the table.

A windswept pitch at the beginning of December 2006 was the scene of Earl Marshall’s heaviest defeat. But the 7-0 score line against Sheffield Wednesday Young Owls didn’t deter the team from battling on to victory against unbeaten Sheffield Six’s and claiming their place in the Trophy Semi Finals.

Earl Marshall began 2007 with an away win, at Millhouses. Back home a frustrating defeat upset their chances of making the top three but they bounced back thrashing Darfield 10-0. Five more victories followed, including a win against Hackenthorpe Juniors, which earned them their place in the Trophy Finals. Despite more impressive performances they missed out on league promotion.

Earl Marshall faced Worksop Boys in the Trophy Final and took an early lead, but were pegged back in the second half. They looked to have won it with a fine solo effort by Kenan McKenzie Grey in extra time, but Worksop levelled and eventually Earl Marshall lost in a penalty shoot out.

A season of considerable progress and superb displays have put Earl Marshall in a strong position for next season.
