“Appley Bridge under 8’s are part of the Appley Bridge club that has existed for the nearly 100 years. The under 8’s are in their first season as a team and play in the Wigan junior league. They play indoor 5 aside FA junior rules football, where the emphasis is on enjoyment for the game and all-round sportsmanship. They will soon move outdoors to play 6 aside and will be wearing new strips sponsored by EPIC KIDZ. The boys are delighted to be getting a new full set of strips and think it is really cool to be supporting a good cause and wearing “EPIC KIDZ” on their tops“
