Victory at Long Buckby festival

Hillmorton under 13s sponsored by (Jordan’s car repair and service): Hillmorton under 13s clinched the Long Buckby six-a-side festival last weekend with some dazzling football.

They played nine games , winning six, drawing two and losing just one.

The Leicester Road lads topped the table of a strong group of eight teams with 14 points .

It set up a semi final against a strong Guilsborough team, but it was Hillmorton who came through strongly with a 4-1 win , setting up a final with Crick All Stars.

From the off Hillmorton piled on the pressure but couldn’t seem to find a way past the Crick keeper, who was on superb form.

The winning goal came with one minute to go. William Taylor found himself with an open goal to bundle the ball over the line.

A long day but totally worth it in the end as the Leicester Road boys lifted the cup. Goals on the day came from Riley O’Sullivan 7, Lewis Clearly 3, William Taylor 2 and Toby Swinburn.

Hillmorton require a new striker to add to their strong squad to play in the Northampton league on Sunday afternoons. Contact David Taylor on 07832 868447.
