U15s Wyke Division Champions

Written by

Flinton Flyers u15s were looking forward to beginning the new season, after winning the u14s Kingston division last season starting with a confident pre-season.

Flinton were quick off the blocks in the opening fixture winning 6-1 away at Beverley Town, a team that had not lost to Flinton in the previous 6 meetings. After that performance the boys faced a higher division team in the knock out cup, who two seasons earlier beat them 7-0 in the same competition, this fixture was the start of a great cup run which saw Flinton get to the quarter finals by beating Elloughton Blackburn and North Ferriby United then narrowly losing 3-2 away at Scarborough from the Myton division.

The Christmas break came and Flinton had played 7 league and 3 cup games, winning 8, drawing 1 and losing 1, which put us top of the league.

The second half of the season began with the bad weather disrupting many of the games with us only being able to play 5 games in 12 weeks, winning 3, drawing 1 and losing our first league game at home 0-1 to a very tough and well organised Westella Jnrs. The regular season had come to an end and we had 9 rearranged games to play in 31 days, having a big squad (18 players) really helped as we were able to rotate and keep players fresh and rested. We played 5 and won 5. Then we had 2 games against a Hutton Cranswick team that were in great form and in second place behind Flinton trailing by 6 points having played the same amount of games. The two games were well contested and both ending in 2-2 draws. Which meant we needed 1 point from our remaining two games to be crowned Wyke division champions and achieving back to back promotions. We played Beverley Town who were enjoying a good run of form losing only 2 of their last 7 games.

Flinton were in no mood to let the title slip and after a nervy first 20 minutes Flinton took the lead, then the confidence showed has we went on to score a further 4 more goals to win 5-0 and take the title win a game to spare.

Flinton, who have been the HBSFL fair play award winners for two seasons back to back, finished their season with a 1-1 draw at home to Westella.
