Celebrating Berrow footballers given tour of Burnham!

A team of celebrating young footballers enjoyed an open-air tour of Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday evening (May 16th) when they travelled to their annual presentation night.

Berrow Boys Under 10s won the North Somerset Mini League County Cup and were delighted to show off their trophy, which they clinched after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Nailsea.

The youngsters were towed in a specially-adapted trailer along Burnham seafront, then through Berrow and Brean, on Saturday evening.

Andrew Goodall, the team's Assistant Manager, told "The boys deserved this recognition - their win was remarkable given that they'd really struggled in the League this year. They did so well to win the County Cup."

And Matthew Ellis, the team's proud Manager, added: "It was strong teamwork that won us the Cup. The opposing team, Nailsea, were 1-0 up at half time, but the boys showed lots of spirit to battle back and win 2-1 at the final whistle."

The boys were dropped off at the Farmers Tavern in Brean Leisure Park where Berrow Football Club's annual presentation night was held.
