It was only on the 15th game they drew with Willington Quay 2-2, eventual runners up, and losing the final game against Kingston Park, who finished in third.
“We won the league by eight points, a fantastic achievement.
“At the club presentation awards, the Players’ Player Das an Hudson, the managers player award went to Matthew Nelson and Sam Bethel.
“The Chairman’s award went to the whole squad for their achievement, but a special mention was to Rhyan Clark, who actually played for our Senior club, AFC Newbiggin in the Northern Alliance Premier League, all being a couple of games at the age of 17 years old.”
“Myself and coaches Alan Wilson and Will Brown were extremely proud of all the lads and wish them luck in senior football next season
