In the village of Jacksdale a new   
 football team has just been formed.   
 It is called the Jacksdale Miner's    
 Welfare Under 12 years. All the       
 players must be under 12 years old on 
 the first day of the season which     
 begins in September each year.        
   Most of the players are from        
 Jacksdale Junior School. The team     
 plays against clubs from other        
 villages in the area. So far they have
 played 4 games, winning 3 and losing  
 1. The local teams they have played   
 are from the villages of Brinsley in  
 Nottinghamshire and Riddings and Crich
 in Derbyshire.                        
   The team plays on Sunday morning at 
 the Miner's Welfare football ground in
 Jacksdale. The ground is very flat and
 has good changing rooms with showers. 
   Next season the team hope to join   
 the Derby Youth League.
