Sheringham church celebrates football success
A Presentation Evening was held at the Lighthouse Community Church in Sheringham to celebrate a very successful football season for the Lighthouse teams. Elaine Fisher reports.
The church has seven teams in the Norfolk Christian Football League from Under 10’s to adults and new players are welcome to join the teams which play on Saturday mornings, with a training night every Thursday.
Club Manager Paul Smith said it had been the best season ever for the club, and he was particularly pleased that Lighthouse teams won the ‘Fair Play’ awards which were voted by the opposition team managers.
League trophies were presented to
League Winners in the Under 12 competition (winning 11 out of 12 matches)
Cup and Plate Runners-up Trophies were presented to Lighthouse Under 10 team
