Young Clarets lift Malta trophy

We'd won our first five games and today's results have ensured we finished top to bring home the trophy with an invitation to return next year to defend it.

Today's results saw us beat Hereford United 2-1 and Pieta Hotspur 3-0 with a 0-0 draw against Melita between them.

That's five wins and a draw with five clean sheets and a goal difference of 22-3 allowing us to emulate the success of the under-12 team who won the trophy last season.

Clarets Mad were again delighted to assist the team in playing in this tournament and we are indebted to Clarets' fan Joe Vella who has kept us up to date over the three days.

The pictures below, including one of some of the parents celebrating a goal, have again been kindly provided by Joe, and are from the second day.
