Wisbech Town Acorns have been named as one of Cambridgeshire FA’s Grass Roots Heroes and the Standard Charter club has now been shortlisted for the regional awards.
And all this after the under-16s, pictured above, won their Cambridge & District Colts League Division D title with a 2-1 win against Isleham last week.
Spokesman for the club, Kelley Lewis, said: “We are really pleased to be recognised for our hard work and dedication over the past 12 months.
“We are fully committed to raising standards in grass roots football and maintaining our ethos of developing children of all ages regardless of ability.
“All of our coaches are FA licensed and committed to taking on extra personal development.

“Without them we wouldn’t have safe and structured environments where youngsters can develop their footballing talent.”
