THE popularity of the Herefordshire Junior Football League's winter Futsal program for the two youngest age groups continued to grow this year.

In the fifth year that the programme has ran 24 teams took part in the under-eight age competition and 27 teams in the under-nines.

Both age groups were split into three random drawn leagues and after four weeks of games were again split in to three new leagues of more equal ability namely Red, Amber and Green Leagues.

Ludlow Town under-nines were crowned winners of the Green League while Orleton FC under-nines won the Amber Group.
