The U7 gala at Durkar Devils’ ground at Slack Lane, proved a big success and involved the hosts along with teams from Redfearns, Hall Green, Athersley Rec, Ryhill, Pinfold Pumas and Hemsworth.

Durkar were wearing their brand new kit for the first time, ready for starting the new season in September, after generous sponsorship from local company Stronglife Care.

The competing sides were split into A teams and B teams, dependent on ability.

Durkar fielded two teams in each group and both reached the semi-finals where they were involved in close matches only to miss out on finals in agonising fashion after losing penalty shoot-outs.

Winners in the A team league were Hall Green and victorious in the B team league were Redfearns.
