Headmaster Mr Michael Percik said: "This was a fitting finale to a wonderful season in which our team has regularly played excellent passing football. The last game is always remembered and I am sure all the players, the ever faithful family supporters and I will treasure it. Well done boys and many thanks to Mr Rashleigh and Mr Duxbury for all the input which produced such a fine team."
