MORE THAN 750 youngsters took part in a major football festival held at Great Harwood Rovers' new Lyndon House playing fields.
A total of 78 teams from 30 different junior football clubs entered the inaugural Dave Smith Memorial Trophy - staged in honour of one of the club's founder members.
Mr Smith, who helped form the club in 1975 and later became both chairman and club president, was a well known and respected figure throughout junior football prior to his death in 2001.
Previously held at Wilson's playing fields, Lyndon House staged this year's finals, which were won by: Bromley Cross (Boys Under eights), Accrington Stanley (Boys Under nines), Great Harwood Rovers (Boys Under 10s), Pendle Forest (Boys Under 11s), Knuzden Juniors (Boys Under 12s), Darwen Rangers (Boys Under 13s), Darwen Rangers (Girls Under 10s) and Radcliffe Girls (Girls Under 12s).
Andy Counsell, secretary of Great Harwood Rovers, said: "It was an absolutely brilliant day - the weather was good and all the kids, their parents, the managers and coaches really enjoyed themselves.
"The games were played in the right spirit and the competing teams were a credit to their clubs.
"I have already had several messages commending Great Harwood Rovers for putting on an excellent and well-organised tournament."
