An East Cambridgeshire football team say they are “at risk of folding” after fears the club can not secure any new players.

Haddenham Rovers Colts under 10s will move to a nine-a-side squad next month, but the team currently only has eight members.

With an upcoming deadline of Saturday June 9, if no new players join the club they will be forced to disband.

Graeme Hall, team coach, said “Our mixed ability team has been playing for three seasons now, and we will all be extremely sad if we can’t carry on, especially the children.

“We are an inclusive team and encourage all players, so don’t worry if you haven’t yet discovered your inner Messi, we will help you to develop your skills.”

“Children need to be in Year Six from September and not currently playing for a team.”
