TWO ace goal poachers helped Baldock Lancers under-14s win the Royston Crow League Division Three title.
The team, which had never gained more than 25 points, have capped off a wonderful season by achieving 60 points with three games to go.
Their nearest rivals, Albion Youth, have played 23 of their 24 games and are nine points behind.
The team has won 20 out of 21 games, scored 148 goals and has a goal difference of 110.
Two players from the team have equalled the club record for all age groups by scoring more than 50 goals in a season.
This feat has only ever been achieved once before in the club's history.
Ace strikers Joel Strickland scored 54 goals and Sam Frazer-Bossom 52.
Both will be recognised by their club, Baldock Town Youth, at the annual awards ceremony later this month.
Joel will receive the club Golden Boot award and Sam will receive an award for scoring more than 50 goals.
The team will not be able to further their amazing season as the remaining three games which were cancelled earlier in the season by the opposition will not be played. The Lancers will have to be satisfied with taking their final points tally to 69 points, 15 points clear of the rest of the field.
The team rounded off their season with a 10-0 win against Letchworth Garden City Eagles Yellows in which Joel scored a hat-trick, Sam and Jordan Fidock got two each, and Ben Glover, Daniel Newton and Sean Hunt one apiece.
