CHAMPS -- Hucknall Sports Under-11s White

A CRUCIAL goal just four minutes from the end of the final saw HUCKNALL SPORTS UNDER-11S WHITE clinch victory in a pre-season tournament at Audley in Stoke.

The locals progressed through a six-team group before tackling Ruskin Park Rovers in the semi-finals. A confidence-boosting 2-0 success booked their birth in the final against a big, strong Red Street outfit.

But Sports stuck to their guns and, after a goalless first half, landed the killer blow as time was running out to lift the trophy courtesy of a 1-0 victory.
