The village of Halvergate will boast a football team once again with the formation of AFC Halvergate for the 2012-13 season.

Any players and coaches interested in a challenge and progressing this new club are welcome to attend.

For further information contact Cruickshank on 01493 657351 or via the club’s website,

n TOWN Hall would like to remind everyone that training will commence for the new season on Tuesday, July 10 at 7pm on Green Lane.
