Ribblesdale School’s Year 9 football team are celebrating their most successful season to date.

The team was rewarded for a season of hard work with a magnificent victory in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley Cup Final.

They ran out deserved 3-1 winners, with goals from Karl Lingard (two) and Sammy Willis.

Their road to success was helped by Clitheroe Clarion group, who very kindly provided the boys with a brand new strip at the beginning of the season, and which they have worn with pride throughout.

A school spokesman said: “Mr Stoddart and the boys said would like to go on record to thank them for their splendid gesture.”
