The youngsters stormed through their group matches, winning all five games against teams from Cambridgeshire, Essex, Herts, Suffolk and Kent, scoring 12 goals and conceding none.

They then met a strong Canterbury side in the final, eventually winning a nerve wracking penalty strokes contest after the match had finished in a 2-2 draw.
