Barrowford Celtic Under 9s Orange topped off a great season by beating Pendle Forest Dragons in a decisive game to win the league.

Despite having no substitutes available for the match, they fought hard to gain crucial points in a must-win final match.

Man of the match Harry Wilkinson started proceedings, followed by goals from Michael Dale, Liam Street and Joseph Brown.

The result followed a string of key victories against Celtic’s closest rivals, including one against a tough Barnoldswick Town side.

Coach Steve Wilkinson said: “All the lads have worked hard all season and constantly improved – this is just reward for their efforts and fair play attitude.”
