There has been a lot of hard work behind the scenes to make this happen in recent months.

“Having known Kewford for a long period of time, I feel they have progressed really well within both the boys’ and girls’ section. All members of the Kewford committee have been brilliant in the process and we are excited to work with them for many years to come.”

Jo Cooper, Kewford Eagles chairperson, added: “We are extremely proud and excited to be working alongside Wolves in our new partnership.
