Worksop Town Under 18s have won a DB Sports League title for the second time in three seasons.

When they won the championship in 2011/12 it was the first time a Worksop side had won a title in that league, and they did it in style, with a 10-point cushion and only two defeats.

This season they went one better, losing only a single league match and finishing eight points clear

Manager Dave Wesley hopes his side’s success translates to more players progressing into the town’s senior side.

“The future of football for Worksop Town could be very healthy with several of the 2011/12 squad, all local talent, having made first team appearances last season,” he said.

“So the 2013/14 squad could give more options for the first team.”
