Barnstaple Youth Under 11s rounded off their most successful season so far by winning the Twyford Tournament on Saturday.

Having already completed the league and cup double in the North Devon Youth League and won the Tiverton Town FC and Willand Rovers tournaments the Barnstaple youngsters completed the clean sweep with a 2-1 penalty shoot out victory against Stoke Hill of Exeter in the final at Twyford.

Club spokesman Mark Walker said: “Winning five out of five competitions this season was a great achievement and well done to the whole squad.”

Torridgeside Tornadoes won the Under 9s competition, winning all of their nine games in the tournament. They scored 25 goals and conceded just one on their way to a final success over Ottery St Mary.

The final was a close encounter and won thanks to a Jack Magarotto goal while Baily Clark was outstanding at the back throughout the day and was named the Tornadoes’ player of the competition.
