Cup cakes, medals, a shiny trophy and smiles all round as a revitalised Shotley Rangers returned in style.

Playing in yellow, the enthusiastic, entertaining and energetic under-nines lifted the inaugural Telec Cup after beating a good East Bergholt side that played neat football, in a sporting contest at Shotley's Main Road ground.

The East Begholt boys were consoled with cup cakes, complete with the Rangers logo, at the presentation on a sunny morning well supported by family and friends.
