On a Saturday I play in defence for Murton AFC in the Durham Alliance League. When I first signed it was a struggle for our team to get results to go our way which seen our team drop down the league, but after a few changes in management and players we finally have a stable squad which have heart and determination. Even when we struggle for a squad due to players being injured or at work the team still show the never say die attitude to grind out results. Since our new manager has came in we are unbeaten in both the league and cup and have reached the semi-final in the Mark Blake Memorial Trophy and hopefully go on to reach the final and lift the trophy.
On a Sunday I play in defence for Avenue in the Hartlepool Sunday morning league and we have been enjoying success all season winning nearly all of our games and already claimed the Division 1 title and promotion the the premier league.
We are also still in 1 or 2 cups and were unfortunately knocked out of another against a team for the division above us but we put up a fight and ended up coming out in a 3-2 defeat but still hold our heads high and push on to try and win the rest of the trophies available.
Football is a sport I really enjoying playing in my spare time.
