Seaton Rangers’ under-16s players are heroes after securing a stunning treble by beating Cockermouth Titans in the Grand Final.

Rangers’ youngsters had already battled through a long, hard season to finish top of the league and clinch the League Cup and they capped their trio of successes against Titans.

The players returned for pre-season early in December as they were determined to finally win some silverware having been runners-up in most competitions over the last three years.

Things looked promising when the season started well with the team going unbeaten in their first seven league games and they went on to only lose twice in the league throughout the season.

They claimed the league title against rivals Egremont with a 36-0 win before going on to take the cup in a brutal game against Hensingham in pouring rain which ended 16-12.

The side has been led to glory by coaches Dean Wright and Gareth Isley, with help from sponge man Alan McMullen.

Wright said: “The dedication they have shown this year is outstanding and today they got their just deserts.

“When all other teams were playing Xbox and PlayStation in the winter these lads put themselves through it to be winners and it’s all paid off.”
