Ashington Juniors Eagles Under-12s are in need of a larger trophy cabinet after clinching the treble this season.

The team scooped the silverware in the league, winning all 18 games, scoring an impressive 86 goals and conceding only nine.

They are also the first ever winners of the NABC Pin Point Challenge Trophy, with a 3-1 victory over Blaydon Youth & Community in what was a tense but physical final played at Wallsend Boys Club.

And the team won the Southport Super Cup, beating Scottish team Edina Hibs in the final 1-0.

Team manager James Drysdale said: “It’s been another fantastic season for the boys and girls.

“Clive Robertson and myself and everyone at the club are delighted with their achievements.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us this season but especially parents, grandparents and friends of the team for helping to transport the players to and from games, running the line and fundraising for the team.”

The team will be holding trials from Tuesday, June 11. Anyone interested should call James Drysdale on 07429 409359.
