After winning promotion from the Sheffield and District Junior League Division D last season, Earl Marshall Under 12s delivered some excellent performances in their pre season friendlies.

The 2008-09 season got underway with an impressive 3-2 Cup win against top Division B side Dodworth and ensured that Earl Marshall approached their league campaign with a real sense of optimism. The season started well, and after a 6-1 win away to Brampton Dynamos there was even speculation about a second successive promotion.

However a series of narrow defeats have ensured that Earl Marshall approach the mid point of the season knowing that they need to get points on the board if they are to maintain their status in the third tier. Their ability to take points from the three top sides has shown that they can compete with any team in the Division, but manager Garfield Walters will be looking for the players to show a similar team effort when they face mid table opposition in the new year.

Newly formed Earl Marshall Under 7s have impressed everyone with the progress they have made since they started training together last May. The team have enjoyed some great results and proved they are more than a match for the leagues established clubs.

The success of the Under 7s team has given the club the impetus to regular training for Under 6s on Wednesdays from 6-7pm at Firshill School with the intention of creating a new Under 7s squad ready for next season.
