Sleights joint-bosses Ed Turner and Sam Leadley have expressed their delight after their side sealed the Beckett League Division Two title.

Joint-boss Turner said: “We are over the moon to finish as champions, even though the team we had was always capable of it.

“We still had to grind out results through an appalling winter, and have the depth and talent to get results on difficult away midweek fixtures. we had three games per week.

“We haven’t stopped looking forward, and seeing rivals Lealholm doing so well in the first division gives us more hunger for next year, hopefully back in Sleights.”

Those sentiments were echoed by joint-boss Leadley, who added: “I’m very proud of the team’s effort and commitment this season, and it’s nice to finally have a trophy to show for the hard work this great set of lads put in.

“We are excited about the prospect of playing in Division One next year and we are confident we can challenge.”
