Euan Simpson’s 15-year spell as manager of Leverington Sports Ladies ended on a high after a handsome cup victory. 

Simpson with fellow coach and wife Rachael stepped down from the club after Leverington’s 6-1 triumph over Waterbeach Colts Ladies in the Cambs Junior Invitation Cup on Sunday. 

Writing on Twitter, Simpson said: “The past 15 years have been an absolute blast, but it's time for family to come first.  

“Our thanks to everyone who has helped us over the years.”
