Needwood Five-A-Side Football Team



Stephen Smith (bottom left) has organised a Needwoodian group mainly for the younger ones; those who have left school after 1978. Some have not seen each other for 23 years and they meet every two months to talk about Christmas parties, weekend breaks and day outings etc.. They've also formed a 5-a-side football team and last November played for the first time against Derby where they drew 1-1, not bad since they've haven't played since leaving school. They went on to play Birmingham (lost 5-2) and Leicester (lost 7-0). Team members are: Stephen Smith, Errol Haughton, Adam Hodge, Scott Furley, Daniel Boulton and Elliot Smith. They all felt really proud to play for Needwood and hope to continue for a long time to come.
