The superb exploits of the AFC Dunstable Reserve team were honoured with a Civic Reception at Creasey Park last Thursday.

The team completed an extraordinary treble success this season; winning the Bedfordshire Intermediate Cup, the SSMFL North and West Division, and being crowned overall champions of the Reserve Section of the SSMFL – triumphing in a play-off final against St Margaretsbury, the champions of the South and East Division.

With an average age of just over 19, the success shows that AFC are going in the right direction by promoting youth within the ranks.

A special mention goes to Brayden Judge, 18, who started out as a eight-year-old and has played at every age group for AFC, becoming the first player in the club to do so.

The team and staff were greeted by the Town Mayor of Dunstable Liz Jones and were honoured for their achievements.

During the reception, she congratulated the squad and handed out the championship trophy and medals for the SSMFL North and West Reserve Division.

Meanwhile, AFC Dunstable have announced the dates and times for their youth trials for next season, held at Creasey Park.

Next Tuesday, the girls teams are between 5.30pm and 7pm, while the U12s/U13s boys are from 7pm-8pm and the U14s/U15s are between 8.30pm-10pm.

On Wednesday, it’s the U7s/U8s/U9s boys from 5.30pm-7pm, the U10s/U11s from 7pm-8.30pm and the U17s/U18s from 8.30pm-10pm.
