Somersham Town Under 12s saw off opposition from four counties to claim tournament glory last weekend.
David Mackintosh’s side triumphed in dramatic style courtesy of a nailbiting penalty shoot-out success in the final of the Kettering Town youth event.
The Somersham lads prevailed 12-11 from the spot against Brixworth Jaguars to lift the trophy.
The tournament attracted entrants from Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire with Somersham coming through a six-game group stage and semi-final to reach the showpiece.
Buckden Vultures Under 10s also enjoyed success last weekend.
