CLITHEROE Wolves Under 9s Red, coached by Martin Aspinwall and Jason Middleton, have won the East Lancashire Green League.

In 18 games, the team won 15 and drew three, to leave them three points clear of closest rivals Darwen Rangers Lads.

Wolves’ final game of the season against Lamack Juniors Blue on Sunday required the minimum of a draw to become league champions.

Wolves took the lead through Noel Byrne, followed by his second just before half-time.

The second half saw Clitheroe continue to dominate, and Byrne scored again to get his hat-trick, with further goals scored by Cara Milne-Redhead and Mackenzie Kay.

Man of the match was Kyle Fielding.
