A March girl’s football club has played their first game of the season after fearing they could fold if no more players came forward.
The March Park Rangers Youth under 14 girls were not sure if they would be able to continue after two players left.
But after a new player rose to the challenge, the team dusted off their boots and battled on against Peterborough Northern Star on Saturday (November 10).
Joanne Kent, manager, said: “Thankfully a new player joined a few weeks ago and has already proved a fantastic asset to the team.
“Before that our remaining eight players remained positive and enthusiastic by attending weekly training sessions, but for eight weeks we were not sure what was going to happen.”

Joanne added: “Both teams played really well Saturday in a very even game, Peterborough Northern Star came out eventual winners with a 5-2 final score, Ruby Murfitt scoring both goals for March.
