March air cadets went undefeated as they saw off other squadrons from Northern Sector of Beds and Cambs Wing to win the first RAFA Northern Sector six-a-side football tournament.

Seven air cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron took part in the tournament, with Cadet Brandon Casson-Rennie’s eight goals winning the golden boot.

All team members were awarded with gold medals for their win.

Sergeant (ATC) Simon Foster said: “We have a very strong number of football players at 1220, and it was a great opportunity to see them all play together and defeat their opponents.”

Cadet Casson-Rennie said: “To play our first tournament and come away with two awards is a great achievement for our Squadron and we are all keen to take part again next year, where we would hope to be undefeated.”
