Clitheroe Cobras make a bit of history
4:59pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in Sport
Victory in the final league fixture meant that Clitheroe Cobras U9s were crowned Lancashire League Division One champions for the first time in the club’s history.
An emphatic victory against Ramsbottom meant that the Ribble Valley youngsters ended their season with a near perfect record of 17 wins and a solitary loss to Greenmount.
Cobras Team Supremo Jack Atkinson couldn’t hide his delight at the team's feat as he commented, “It’s been an amazing season! We never expected anything of the boys as we just let them go out there and express themselves.
“It makes the achievement even more special because there have been a lot of good U9s teams at the club in previous seasons yet none have managed what these players have.
“I think I was more nervous than the players as we approached the back end of the season and realised we were in with a chance of the league and a piece of Cobras history.
“Luckily my right hand man Hughie Wardle kept my feet firmly on the ground.”
