The boys of HUCKNALL SPORTS U10S RED are beaming with pride after clinching the Young Elizabethan League’s Saturday First Division title.

Sports, who have remained unbeaten throughout the spring season, were crowned champions after cruising to a comprehensive 6-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Southwell City Spires in their final match.

Sam Watson opened the scoring after a lovely pass by Bradley Mee and the same player soon added a second . Man-of-the-match Mason Lowbridge also got on the scoresheet, as did Rufus Astle, who struck twice, and the big day was topped by a superb solo effort from William Bird.

MEANWHILE another Hucknall team basked in title glory as ROLLS-ROYCE LEISURE U16S wrapped up the Notts Youth League’s Saturday Second Division with a 2-1 win against close rivals, Basford United.

Goals from Tyler Sims, plus a man-of-the-match display by Corey Scothern, helped Rolls build an unassailable four-point lead at the top after an undefeated run of 15 matches.

LETHAL LINBY RANGERS U15S are also enjoying their status as champions of the Notts Youth League’s Saturday Fourth Division. A 7-0 romp at Southwell City White stretched their unbeaten campaign to 17 matches, 16 of which they have won. Man-of-the-match Ryan Butler helped himself to no fewer than six of the goals, with Eli Denton netting the other.

IN the Notts Youth League’s Sunday First Division, tabletopping HUCKNALL SPORTS U15S BLACK edged closer to the title with a 3-2 win at Keyworth United Black, courtesy of an Adam Loydall hat-trick. Sports hold a two-point lead with two games to play.
