7:20am Saturday 2nd June 2012 in Football
THE Lenches Cubs Under Nines claimed their first tournament success at the Bidford Festival.
They finished second in a tough group with two victories and two draws before winning a penalty shoot-out after drawing 1-1 in their semi with Eckington Juniors.
Against Studley in the final, Lenches scored early in the second-half and held their lead to lift the cup.
They play in the Ambassador Evesham League and want new recruits to play matches on Saturday mornings and train on Thursday evenings when the new season starts in September.
