Haddenham Rovers Colts U15s won Cambridgeshire FA's U-15 Park League on Saturday after beating title rivals Bassingbourn Youth FC. 

Both sides were in with a shout of the top spot and promotion before the early morning kick-off. 

Bassingbourn were the only side to have beaten Haddenham throughout the long season, where several games needed to be rescheduled due to bad weather. 

An early goal from Harry Thompson, a bullet header from Alfie Bull and a third goal from Harley Jones led to scenes of happy mayhem when the referee's whistle finally blew. 

Final score:  3-2.  Haddenham finished the season on 47 points, six points ahead of Fordham Dragons and Bassingbourn Youth both on 41 points.

Haddenham's manager Stephen Thompson said: "It was a tense week where I thought of little else other than who would play where. 

"Our key midfielder, Ollie, was a big miss as he was unwell.  We all wish him well and look forward to celebrating with him at our end of season team meal. 

"Our last four matches were against the strongest teams in the league and we were delighted to win all of those games. 

"Our players go to five different schools and four of them are playing a year up.  They have bonded so well, improved their passing and kept their discipline right to the end.  I am so proud of the players. 

"Providing sporting opportunities for youngsters is incredibly important.  At the start of the season my goals were for the players to stay fit, improve their skills and enjoy it all.  I think they enjoyed their weekend."

Haddenham Rovers Colts FC now has more than 200 players on the books, including an academy, mixed younger teams and a girls' team. 

The parish council has provided new facilities at The Holly Fairchild Pavilion and playing fields.  These will be available from the start of the new season meaning the football club will no longer need to play some of their matches on the village school field or in neighbouring Wilburton.
