A Merseyside football team has completed a league and cup double for the 2021-2022 season, wearing the RoadPeace name on their shirts.
L4 U17s won the Tuebrook JSL junior football league and retained the Challenge Cup with a 5-3 victory over MSB Woolton Warriors on May 15.
A Charlie Hacking hat-trick and goals for Kaleb Sweeney and Ethan Danku secured the win for L4 to cap off a great season.
The L4 U17s team have been sponsored by RoadPeace and the charity’s legal panel member Birchall Blackburn Law (BBL).
Captain Paddy Clegg described the season as a great achievement and one that tested the team both physically and mentally: “We’ve worked very hard during pre-season and set ourselves a target that we have gone on to achieve. The team have given 100% and the togetherness in the group has got us over the line, winning the league gave us the confidence to go on and add the cup too.”
Manager Tony Cosgrove is extremely proud of his team: “Every single player has given their all and they have been a joy to work with all season. Some of the performances have been outstanding and they have done the club proud. On a personal note, I would like to take this opportunity to thank RoadPeace, BBL and Fitwell for their continued support and sponsorship.
“We can now look forward to our next challenge in the 2022-23 season.”
RoadPeace Trustee, Pauline Fielding MBE gives her congrats to the team by stating: “Congratulations to the players, manager and others involved in this tremendous achievement. I’m especially pleased it was achieved whilst promoting RoadPeace on your kit! You should be so proud!”
