Barnham Trojans under-13 Reds are celebrating winning the Arun & Chichester League C division.

They had a great start to the season, coming back from at least three down to draw the first two league games. Then a mixture of great football and determination saw them finish the season with 28 points, winning the league on goal difference.

This was a great achievement after relegation a year earlier, and it was largely down to a great team spirit and a desire to enjoy football from all in the team.
