FC Lakeside Under 12s League 1 Winners


On Sunday Lakeside FC won the Under 12 Division 1 Cheltenham Youth League having won an incredible 18 out of 18 home and away matches.

The season finale was a tense affair in the Forest of Dean against Ruardean Hill Rangers who had title ambitions of their own having won 16 of their 17 league games, their only loss to date being away to Lakeside. A win for Ruardean would have resulted in a play-off match to decide the league winners, a win or draw for Lakeside would see them take the title. Lakeside had not conceded more than one goal in a league game all season with the exception of an 18-3 win, so the title was firmly in our sights when we took a deserved lead with 15 minutes on the clock.

The team battled hard for each other and saw the game out to chalk up a seventh clean sheet of the season and more importantly a league title. This is a fantastic achievement for the team and a progression from the CYL under 11’s league season from which they also emerged unbeaten, winning both the autumn and winter mini-leagues, in addition to the Cinderford, Abbeymead and Quedgley summer tournaments!!!
