Warriors battle way to trophy triumph

WELLS City U12s claimed a fourth trophy within a few weeks when their Warriors team won the Yeovil & District League’s St John’s Plate competition.

The team fought through three difficult knock-out rounds to reach the showpiece final, where they took on Wessex Wolves in Ilchester on Wednesday, June 16. A goal after just two minutes set the tone for the match, with the Warriors going on to wrap up a comprehensive 7-1 victory to claim the prestigious plate trophy.

Coach George Lunnon said: “The Warriors have put in maximum effort and concentration over the whole season and it has paid off in what was a very dominant display and a huge cup triumph. I’d like to say a massive thank you to all players, parents and coaches who have made this season possible.”

The Warriors’ clubmates, Wells City Colts, won Division 2 of the Yeovil League several weeks previously, while the U12 Blues won a tournament in Melksham as well as their home tournament in Wells.
