Manchester City may be one game away from a potential domestic treble, but not even Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions have managed to match Vickerstown’s under-14 team’s achievements this season.

For their trophy cabinet is fit to burst after they won all four competitions that were available to them over the course of the campaign.

The first leg of their quadruple was completed when they defeated nearest rivals Holker Old Boys Red, who chased them almost as hard as Liverpool did with City, to clinch the Barrow & District Junior League title.

They followed that up just 24 hours later by adding the Furness District FA Cup and their collection was completed by the BDJFL Knockout and Ulverston Hospital Cups the following week, with all three of those competitions won by playing at Holker Street, home of Barrow AFC.

Manager Dave Shurgold said of their amazing season: “We wanted to win the league, but trying to win the league and win a cup was sort of the expectations we had.

“That would have been a successful season for us, but to go all the way undefeated and clean up was just beyond expectations.

“I was a bit annoyed with the league because they were giving us back-to-back fixtures, so it wasn’t be any stretch easy, but the lads just dug in and put in a good performance, like they have done all season.

“We won our finals 5-0, 6-0 and 7-1, but when you get out of sight and the game’s done and dusted, you can rotate and give players a bit of extra game time, so it’s been decent to be able to do that.”

Vickerstown will be facing a big step up next season, as they’ll be competing in the under-16 division of the BDJFL as an under-15 team, but Shurgold is looking forward to the challenge.

He said: “It’s going to be a different challenge and we’re not really expecting too much. All that I’m expecting is just for us to compete and give the older teams a good game.”

Shurgold also wishes to thank shirt sponsors JF Hornby and tracksuit sponsors Furness Building society, as well as his coaches Matty Taylor and Dan Marks for all their help this season.
