Wilpshire Wanderers celebrated another successful season at their annual awards night at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn handed out the silverware, with Under 15 captain Ben Mayson collecting the trophies for his team’s league and cup double in the Accrington and District Junior Football League.

Wilpshire fielded 16 teams in local leagues from Under 7 to Under 16 level, with the older age groups receiving backing from Simonstone-based engineering firm Fort Vale.

Club chairman Steve Frost said: “We are very proud to have established an industry partnership with Fort Vale as this will provide potential opportunities for the young people in the club to pursue a career in the engineering industry, and we are truly grateful for their support, which is reflected in another excellent season for the club.”
