Lakeford Rangers completed a treble by adding the John Savage County Youth Cup to league and league cup triumphs.

A 3-0 win over Gorleston Youth took the county's top Under 16 trophy into the club's cabinet for the fourth time.

The side, managed by Andy Baker, had also completed the treble at Under 14 level.

Winning the county cup was the perfect farewell to youth soccer for several of the players. They are also members of Wroxham Reserves' Sterry Cup winning team, which Andy helps Mark Wilkinson to run. Having been with Andy since the age of seven many of the players will be looking to continue their development at Trafford Park.

One of the players, centre forward Kenny Reeves, has landed a two-year scholarship with Norwich City FC.

After a goalless first half in the final at Plantation Park, Lakeford turned on the style to clinch success with goals from man of the match Reeves, Jordan Rocastle (the nephew of late England and Arsenal star David Rocastle) and Jamie Marshall, a Manchester United and Liverpool Academy traillist.

“It was a workmanlike performance in the first half but our quality came through in the second half,” said Baker, whose side are unbeaten, with three Evening News Pink Un Youth Combination league games to go this season.
