FOOTBALL - Racing Club Warwick's under-14 Black A team win treble

RACING Club Warwick’s under-14 Black A team completed the treble after claiming the Coventry and Warwickshire Youth League A Division title.

The club clinched the title with a 7-1 thrashing of Coventry United on the final day having embarked on a 14-game unbeaten run since the end of January.

And Warwick edged out closest rivals Alvis Junior Colts 1-0 in the penultimate week of the season to overtake them at the top of the table thanks to Ben Baker’s lat strike.

Their title success came after winning the League Cup with a 3-1 win against Coventry Jaguar in the final with Alastair Forinton scoring twice and Charlie Pye also on target whilst Charlie Beddows contributed 23 goals from midfield in a stellar individual season.

And the Saturday team also defended their MJPL Cup trophy with a 6-2 thrashing of Pershore Town with Alastair bagging a hat-trick whilst Charlie Winter, Sam Tookey and C Pye also found the net.

The Saturday team finished fourth in the league and triumphed in the cup despite losing star marksman Ihsan Rehman, who scored an incredible 44 goals, a week before the final due to injury.

And Warwick triumphed against a Pershore side who were unbeaten since November as they produced their best performance of the season to lead five-nil at the break.

The team’s success was built on solid defensive foundations as goalkeeper Fin Timms and defenders Callum Jones, Braydon McCartney, Jake Bell, Josh Dutton and captain Alfie Saxton all enjoyed superb seasons.

To win all three trophies in the space of a month went above and beyond the players’ expectations and epitomises the quality of the club’s fast growing junior section which has state of the art facilities.

Preparations have begun in earnest for next season with all the boys committing to return and attempt to win more trophies.
