FELIXSTOWE has a new Saturday football club with Felixstowe Harpers joining the Kingsley Heathcare SIL during the summer.

They will now be junior rivals to Felixstowe and Walton United and Felixstowe United after 47 years as a Sunday side.

Harpers are continuing running two sides in the Ipswich Flare Sunday League, and they have also started a veterans' side who kicked-off their campaign last weekend.
