All the local teams put up a good showing, with the Horncastle Town under 10s and 14s girls reaching their respective finals.

The Horncastle Town under 12 squad did particularly well in their age group.

They entered two separate teams into the tournament, both teams playing each other in the semi-finals, with the victor going on to win the final in a tense penalty shoot out with local rivals Spilsby Town.

It was a great way to end the season.

The under 12s squad will be playing at under 13s level next season in the Mid-Lincs County Youth League, and training places are available for players who aspire to play competitive league football, or who simply wish to improve their football skills in a friendly environment.
