Sponsored by Dereham Taxis, the team has grown over the years and was last year taken over by Darren Pegrum, manager, who took over from his auntie Karen Whitehair.

Pegrum said: “We have all the foundations and players with abilities to win the league and get promoted. It's just a case of battling through the season to get there.
