The sound of the Haddenham Lions could be heard roaring in Risborough late into Sunday afternoon.

Haddenham Lions, one of two Haddenham Youth FC U9 teams, won the annual Risborough Rangers Junior Football Club tournament on Sunday (12th May 2019).

The Lions won four and drew one match in its mini league, followed by triumph in the semi-final and a 4-2 win over Stokenchurch in the final.

Haddenham Tigers, the club's other team in the same Colts competition, narrowly missed out on second place in its mini-league which would have set up an all HYFC semi-final.

Meanwhile, the U7s put in brilliant performances on Saturday at the same Risborough event. Although there are no finals or trophies at U7 level, the two HYFC teams finished with the most points in their respective mini-leagues.

HYFC U7 and U9 teams will be competing for the Adams Park Cup at the stadium of Wycombe Wanderers this weekend.
