Whitby Fishermens Under-14s are celebrating for a second time this week, after securing a league and cup double with a win over Seamer.

The young Fishermans side romped to a convincing 5-0 victory over Seamer to seal the Minor League title last week.

Manager Paul Hutchinson, however, wasn’t without selection headaches for the encounter.

Brogan Russell was a doubt with a suspected broken toe, picked up in the cup victory over Scalby, while Ryan Hewison was absent due to a trip to Bewerley Park.

That wasn’t to stop Hewison, however, with his mother making the 280-mile round trip to ensure that he could feature in the game, before going back to enjoy the rest of his trip.

The game was played in good spirit and tempo by the home side.

Hutchinson was delighted with his side post-match and was quick to thank a number of people connected to the club.

He said: “I’d like to thank our three coaches Dave, Stewart and Carl for all of the hard work they put in with the lads throughout the season.

“I’d also like to thank all of the parents for their ongoing help and support.

“All the hard work and dedication that the lads are showing is now paying off on the pitch.

“We’re getting results and has given us a league title and a cup victory too.

“It’s an all-round team performance so well done to the lads.”
