LIVERPOOL legend Ian Rush this week launched the Prostar Leagues, the largest network of six-a-side leagues in the UK - and is currently recruiting teams in the area. Ian Rush caught up with lifelong Liverpool fans and six-a-side regulars Uni-Reds FC, to give them the training session of a lifetime.

Prostar Leagues' ambassador, Ian Rush, said: "I still play six-a-side at least once a week as a way to keep fit and catch up with the lads. That's the beauty about Prostar Leagues; it's all about playing with your mates and having fun."

If you want to play in the Prostar six-a-side league in the area, at Exmouth College astroturf, which is FA affiliated and free entry, please email ross@soccersixes.net or contact 0845 300 8886.

The Prostar Leagues is FA affiliated and has over 250 leagues, 3,000 teams and 30,000 players turn out each week. New teams can register at www.prostarleagues.com

Leagues Operator Ross Spacey expressed his delight at Ian Rush's involvement: "We are delighted Ian Rush has supported our launch and we are hopeful he will visit some of our leagues in the near future. This would be excellent for our teams. Ian was at the launch of our Prostar leagues and put a team through a training session. I am hopeful we can get him doing more of this!'

Prostar is the market leader in grassroots football teamwear and is pleased to continue its commitment to the game by announcing a new partnership with league organisers Soccersixes.net which will see them enter a new sector of football.
