Downend Saints Under 15s create history
Published on: 28 May 2016
DOWNEND Saints Under 15s have done a Leicester City by winning their league title.
It is the first time in the history of the club that one of its teams has won a Division One championship.
The boys played 20 games, won 16, drew two and lost two, finishing the season with 50 points, seven more than their nearest challenger.
They finished on a high with a 4-1 win over second-placed Avon.
Saints are a very small club, which started in 2002. Most of the Under 15s have been with the club since they were Under 6s.
To end the season off in style Downend made it a league and cup double when beating Ashton Boys 2-0 in the Avon Youth League U15 Cup Final At Keynsham.
A goal in each half completed the double for the team who play in the Avon Youth League Division A.
With only 12 fit for players for the cup final, they limited Ashton boys to limited chances. Manager Enzo Sanfelice and assistant Adam Lacey were ecstatic at the final whistle as Downend won their first ever cup final to complete a memorable season, having won the top division title only a week after clinching the league title.
