The manager of Colne Juniors Under 12s was so frustrated with postponed fixtures due to poor recent weather he decided to do something about it.

John Whiteside, who manages the team from the North Valley and Burnley Unity League, organised a tournament for league teams – most of whom hadn’t had a competitive game since November.

The tournament at Crow Wood proved a big success, with eight teams taking part from Colne, winners Trawden Celtic and Burnley Belvedere.
