THE Davenham Dynamos Under 12s team has had its first season in competitive football in the Mid Cheshire Youth League.

And the youngsters have an extra incentive to play football with a high level of quality because manager Tony Mitchell plans to take the squad on a weekend footballing trip to the North East in May, including a tour of Newcastle United's St James' Park.

Mr Mitchell has launched a fundraising drive to cover the £1,300 cost of the trip and is seeking local businesses willing to chip in.

'They are a great set of lads, full of enthusiasm and if they'd be thrilled if anyone could help out,' said Tony.
