Cup joy for youngsters at Super Sunday
A host of Luton-based sides lifted silverware at the M&S Water Services Chiltern Youth League Super Sunday Cup Finals recently.
The tournament, also sponsored by 3Q Sports, saw Co-op Sports win the U11 Shield Competition by beating Crawley Green Youth Bears 4-1.
Crawley started the game well, as they went close early on, denied by superb save by keeper Ryan Boon.
Co-op grew into the contest though and went ahead when Lewis Dickson’s effort from 25 yards flew in.
Bears equalised through Kayden Paton McMaster’s fine strike, while Co-op fought back well, Daniel Ofori and Dickson combining before Ofori drilled into the net from 25 yards.
In the second period, Caiden Hatton-Smith wriggled free and fired home his side’s third, while Ofori made it 4-1 in the closing stages with a cheeky back heel, allowing captain Aodhan Clarke to lift the first trophy in the team’s short history.
