FOOTBALL: Sweet 16 for juniors


Horncastle Town U16s bravely flew the flag for the club’s junior teams last Sunday.

They were the only side to celebrate victory after registering a comprehensive 5-2 win at Metheringham.

The U14s failed to make the most of home advantage and went down 6-3 to St Helens while the U12s were beaten 3-0 at Ruskington.

The U11s were out of luck as they were pipped 2-1 at North Lindum Hawks while the U10s saw their hopes of a second win of the campaign dashed by HBW United B.
