Tring Tornadoes United U14s returned home with a trophy from their bank holiday tour to Weymouth.

Managed by former Premier League referee Graham Poll, the squad of 14 boys travelled down to the south coast and played exceptionally well, scoring 16 goals and conceding only three in their five matches.

Unfortunately they finished as runners-up in their group to the eventual winners which meant they did not qualify for the final.

The Tring boys were, however, awarded the trophy for their sporting attitude across the entire age group.

The squad, with goals scored in brackets, was: George Hill (5), Chris Butler (4), Will Darraugh (1), Harrison Woods (1), Matt Cowan (1), San Copleston (1), Lee Hatch (1), Matt Cato (1), Isaac Munt (1), Luke Priestley (GK), Harrison Ambrose, Ryan Higgins, Will Alexander and Harry Poll (captain).

On Sunday, the squad will travel to Burnham FC for their last match of the season – a cup final against Risborough Rangers.
