A football club’s fans are on the lookout for players for their seven-a-side sessions with no boundaries when it comes to age, gender or ability.

The side, which meets in Forest Gate, was set up three years ago by Clapton Community Football Club (CCFC) supporters.

Current players, aged 14 to 62, meet for a kick around every Monday at Forest Gate Community School in Forest Lane from 7.30 to 8.30pm.

Player Annu Mayor said: "We're always looking for new players so dust down the trainers and get involved.

"The last time I kicked a ball around was at the age of 15 at school and I have to admit I didn't enjoy the experience.

"But our games are about having a good laugh, getting fit and bringing the community together."
Annu, who part owns CCFC - whose women's team has started training on Tuesday nights for this season - added that the team is particularly keen to get more female players on the pitch.

Anyone who wants to get involved should email Annu at info@claptoncfc.co.uk

Unwaged people play for free with a £5 charge otherwise.
