A LEVEN-based youth football squad has gained the distinction of reaching a cup final in its debut campaign.

In only their first season together, Milton Royals Under-16s, who play their home matches at King George V Park in Leven, reached the final of the AFYFC Spring Cup.

In a closely-contested final in Crossgates, the Royals were unlucky to go down 3-1 to Hillfield Swifts - although there was some consolation when Royals’ keeper Craig Sinclair was voted man of the match.

The majority of the team members are from the Levenmouth area and, next season, the team will be playing in the AFYFC Under-17s league.
