Stotfold Youth Academy lifted the Beds County Cup for the first time in the club's history on Sunday.

The lads picked up their first trophy of the season when they beat AFC Dunstable 3-0 at Ampthill FC in the final of the under-18s county cup.

They became the first Stotfold Youth team to win the trophy as goals from Callum Donnelly, Anthony Bowskill and Adam Willard secured a great team victory.

Youth Acadamy coach John Philbin paid tribute to the team.

He said: "The team deserve immense credit considering they were without a manager for part of the season.

"They have shown tremendous character in this competition and deserve their place in the history books."

The win was dedicated to Academy secretary Margaret Richardson who has worked tirelessly in the new youth set-up this season.
