“We chose Sam (Ostle) as the coach’s Player of the year. Sam is just 16 and he is a left sided attacking midfielder with a good work ethic whose first instinct is to take players on.

“Thomas (Milburn) is a quiet lad and is an old fashioned centre-half who puts his body on the line. He likes to win the ball and find a midfielder.

“Reegan is the smallest player in the team. We started him at right back then moved him into midfield from where he scored a couple of goals before moving up front. He has good balance and is very quick and other teams have underestimated him because of his size but not anymore.”
