HOLBEACH United U/9s completed a remarkable turnaround by winning their first-ever competitive tournament – and it was on home soil.
Just two years after losing their maiden game 12-0 to Hampton, they beat the same team to lift the annual Holbeach United Youth Tournament title.
The lads played six games against the likes of Hampton, Malbourne, Wisbech Acorns, Boston, Outwell Swifts and Riverside, with a set of good results securing them a semi-final berth.
Riverside stood in their way, but the young Tigers managed to win 1-0 and progress to the final.
The final against Hampton was played in great spirit and in front of a large crowd, as Stuart Clark’s side prevailed 1-0.
