Dana Cup Victory.
5th Aug 2006
Town's youth team followed up their remarkable 200/06 season by winning the Dana Cup under 19's section in Northern Denmark last week.
Over 850 teams entered this prestigious tournament at all ages on its 25th Anniversary - it now has become the World’s third largest youth football tournament and 64 teams competed in Town's age section.
Manager Paul Attfield took a squad of 15 players to the tournament this year and special mention should be given to Neil and John Bitting, and John McHale, for executing the vigorous six week training programme prior to the tournament to prepare the players for the physical 8-game run in just five days.
Town won all three of their group matches and went on to beat opposition from Bangladesh, Germany, Norway, Brazil and Spain to deservedly claim the club's first trophy of the season.
