Club issues SOS for players


A Saturday football club which has been fielding teams for 60 years has issued an urgent SOS.

Shirland MW, of the Matlock and District League, are desperately short of team members after injuries and players leaving.

They want to hear from outfield players and a goalkeeper who can play on Saturday afternoons.

In their opening game of the season, against Boythorpe they lost out 4-0.

Shirland MW has a long and proud tradition and in 2010 they won the double in the Matlock League.
