AFC Dunstable U15s League Cup winners

It has been a very successful season for the youth section of AFC Dunstable as they got their hands on 7 trophies, which has swelled the trophy cabinet.

The Under 15’s (above) clinched the Chiltern Youth League Cup in a nail biting game which was won in the last minute of extra time at Kenilworth Road, home of Luton Town FC.

Playing the unbeaten champions of the league Newport Pagnell Town, it did not look good early on as a wonder goal gave Newport Pagnell the lead which they held into the break as AFC never really got going. The 2nd half was a different matter though, as AFC upped their game and dominated it and deservedly drew level through Claudio Dias. Still taking the game to Newport, they found their keeper in inspired form and could not breach the defence as the game went into extra time. That period game was ending in deadlock and penalties were looming, until a free kick was awarded in the final minute and up stepped Dias to bend the ball round the wall to clinch the trophy.
