A TEAM of young footballers from Dronfield have been crowned European champions after winning a tournament in Holland.
Dronfield Town Boys under 15s FC saw off the challenge of teams from all around Europe to bring home the coveted Easter Cup.
Manager Andrew Facey said: “In all the years Dronfield have been playing in the Easter Cup we have never won it.
“And that’s not surprising when you see the standards of quality each of the teams playing in the competition has.
”But we did it and I have to say the lads made all the parents who were there to see them very proud indeed.”
Before setting out to Haarlem for the competition the lads had to raise £9,500 to pay for their trip and Andrew thanked businesses who donated to the cause.
