Hares form new teams

March Town United FC is building for the future as the club will set up seven new teams from this summer.

The Hares want to forge better links with the community and have announced they are run a women’s team plus six extra junior sides, as well as the current first team in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One and reserve team in the Cambs League.

March Town will form youth sides in the following age groups: under 7s, 8s, 9s, 13s and 15s, to add to the existing U14s side, will form. The Hares will also enter an U18 team in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League.

Manager Paul Crosbie said the club would be building for the future last week when the Thurlow Nunn League 2012/13 season ended.

March will host a three-day Peterborough United Soccer School in August and run junior soccer schools during the summer holidays.

The club received planning permission for a new clubhouse at the GER in February and hope to complete it within a year.

Crosbie said: “We think it is a really positive step. It proves March Town is not just focused on senior football.

“It gives us a chance to grow the club and get an influx of players from around March and the fenland area.”
