It will cap a remarkable month for Jaguars, who recently won the County Futsal Cup and represented Derbyshire at a regional final at Wolverhampton University on May 7.

A few days before that, the Jaguars won the NDYFL League Cup at Alfreton to be crowned U10 champions.

The team has now raised over £14k, with the help of local businesses Leverton UK and Wallace Groundworks, to ensure they can play in Paris .
