AF­TER a suc­cess­ful sea­son in League One the East Cheshire Youth League, Tyther­ing­ton Ju­niors un­der 11s football team fin­ished off their sea­son in style by win­ning the pres­ti­gious Failsworth Villa Tour­na­ment.

The tour­na­ment in­volves 200 of the best youth football teams from all over the North West, in var­i­ous age groups.

Tyther­ing­ton started the tour­na­ment strongly, and re­mained un­beaten in the five qual­i­fy­ing group stages.

With some ex­cel­lent team­work and a well or­gan­ised de­fence, pro­gres­sion to the semi fi­nals was achieved with only one goal be­ing con­ceded.

Af­ter a ner­vous start Tyther­ing­ton went on to dom­i­nate the semi-fi­nal, with some great team­work and rock solid de­fence see­ing them through.

They pro­gressed to the fi­nal with a 1-0 vic­tory against Mon­ton Vipers, fol­low­ing an won­der­ful goal from Ai­den But­ter­worth.

In the fi­nal Tyther­ing­ton faced Ap­ple­ton Boys, a strong at­tack­ing side from War­ring­ton.

It was a hard fought game in which both sides played fast at­tack­ing football, but nei­ther side man­aged to score.

In the end the con­test had to be de­cided on a penalty shoot out, which Tyther­ing­ton won 3-2.
