Nene Valley beat William De Yaxley 3-0 in a final that was more closely contested than the final scoreline suggested.

Nene Valley, who didn’t concede a goal in the tournament, beat St Botolphs 2-0 in their semi-final with William De Yaxley 2-0 winners over Heritage Park in their last four clash.

Ten teams entered the annual event which was held in association with the One Touch Football Academy.
