TEENAGE players from Arden Forest FC have won the League Shield.

The under 14s side - who play in the Central Warwickshire League - beat Feckenham FC 3-1.

Mark Gray, manager of the Yardley outfit, said: “It was great news for the lads - many of whom have known each other since they were eight-years-old. In the past they’ve always been the bridesmaid, but never the bride. Now that’s all changed.”

Arden Forest is a well-know local side - Aston Villa midfielder Craig Gardner played for the team during his teenage years.
