Reffley Youth U14s became county champions when they overcame a very good Firside Athletic team 2-0 on Friday night at the FDC in Norwich in the Stuart Dracup Cup Final.

Reffley broke the deadlock on three minutes when Ryan English shot from 30-plus yards out. Goalkeeper Lewis Herbert dived full length to keep the score at 1-0.

On 16 minutes Daniel Arnold picked the ball up 40 yards out, beat three players and chipped the keeper with his left foot.

In the second half the Reffley defence again looked solid while Lewis Herbert was quick off his line to clear up. The Firside keeper made great saves from Ryan English and a header by Connor Joyce.

Defender Connor Joyce was named Man of the Match by Norfolk FA.

Management team Kevin Wingfield and Mark Kilvington would like to thank every player who has played in the competition.
