Newly-formed Real March FC will be looking for success when they play in the Peterborough League Division Two next season.

Early indications are good for Real March, having pushed league high-fliers Guyhirn all the way in their 3-1 defeat.

Matthew Ward has been acting as club manager, secretary and chairman. He said: "I intend to get box nets and dug-outs and slowly build up the club financially.

"We are looking for anyone who wishes to support or sponsor the club in any way. I also want to hire a manager and a groundsman for the new season.

"Both these positions will be paid and that is unusual for football at this level.

Matthew is hoping to expand the facilities at the ground, at Upwell Road, Christchurch, in an effort to push the club forward.

He said: "We are only three leagues away from entering the FA Cup and eight from the Nationwide Conference. I want to build the club up from scratch and aim for those."
