Lions Under 13s captured the Herts County Cup on Wednesday evening and completed an historic quadruple to cap an incredible season.
Pitted against Eastern Junior Alliance side Hitchin Town at the County Ground, Letchworth, Lions won 2-0 with second half goals from Charlie Gordon and Zan Appleson-Fidler and were comfortable throughout against their higher division opponents.
A Junior County Cup has only ever been won once before by a Lions team, and it was these boys just 12 months earlier, meaning back-to-back champions – which makes the feat that bit more impressive.
The win completes the feat of winning every major competition the team has entered this season; champions of the Red (top) Division in the WFL as well as the ‘domestic’ WFL Challenge and League Cups all in the space of a few weeks which has seen the side come through a crucial 6 games in 17 days’.
Co-Manager Steve Gordon said: ‘It’s been an incredible season and the boys are extraordinary.
‘We are very lucky too as we have great parents as well. It’s been a long season so to get the rewards makes it feel even more special’.
