ECKINGTON Juniors under 11s won the Ambassador Evesham Football League Plate final with a thrilling 2-1 success at Alcester.

Juniors, captained by Stan Clarkson, beat rivals Drakes Broughton Rangers despite going behind in the first half. Archie Garfitt levelled and Joe Greening scored what proved to be the winner just before half-time.

Coach Simon Hulse said: “I’m so proud of how the boys battled against a very good opposition.

“It was a real team performance which capped a great season.”

Next season sees the boys compete in a nine-a-side format and Juniors are seeking new talent, particularly defenders, to continue the team’s success.
