Burton Joyce FC Under-10 Green are making a name for themselves across Nottinghamshire and beyond, with an unbeaten run dating back to November 2017.
The team, which plays in Division 1 of the Young Elizabethan Football League (YEL) on Sundays, has remained unbeaten for a total of 18 league matches, winning 12 and drawing six.
In addition to the league record, the team battled their way through to the YEL Under-10 Sunday Cup final.
The game against AFC Warriors from Newark ended 1-1 after extra-time, but Burton Joyce lost 3-2 on penalties.
Manager, Glenn Akerman, said: “No other team in the league can boast such aconsistent record during that period of time.
“Although this is grassroots football, Division 1 is a good standard and many opposing teams have players who have had recent experience at professionalfootball club academies such as Nottingham Forest.
“The fact that the Burton Joyce team consists of players who have never had any of that experience is real proof of the hard work and dedication by the players, as well as the coaching and management team.
“Additionally, both on matchdays and at other events, the team helps to spread an important environmental message throughout Nottinghamshire and surrounding areas as its sponsor is Veolia, the UK leader in environmental solutions.
“Their strategy is focused on manufacturing green products and energy, helping their customers and suppliers to reduce their carbon impact.”
