Playing in the Bristol Regional Sunday League Division 4 Spartans have a host of former AFC Keynsham and Charles Saunders players. As well as Josh and Craig, the Spartans also boasts Jack Hansen, Richey Evans, Manny Pullara, as well as one game two goals loaner Martin Thatcher.
The family connections are also exceptionally strong with Spartans Craig Sutton, Ritchie and Josh Evans all being the same family as K's Greg and Louie Turner.
The clubs have interchanged players for friendlies and are happy to loan each other excess players. AFC Keynsham Mike Swanson has been used as a ref by Spartans.
The two clubs played their first match in August 2009 as one of two friendlies in pre season. AFC Keynsham won both matches 4-1 and 3-1 respectively, but Spartans were to exact a measure of revenge by winning a GFA Minor Cup tie 4-0.
Although both sides enjoy healthy friendly banter the guys get on well, and continue to meet up for pre and post season friendlies ever year.
