Harpenden Colts U16 Blues produced a stunning second-half display against Cassiobury Rangers to clinch the West Herts Youth League Division Two title.

It was 0-0 at half-time against their championship rivals but a thrilling display of counter-attacking football brought a 4-0 victory.

Fine goalkeeping, brave blocks were the main features of the game and it meant the Colts finished with 52 points from 22 games.

In total they won 16, drew four and lost just two, scoring 60 goals along the way.

They also produced 10 clean sheets, an impressive feat in youth football, and as with most title-winning teams the foundation was a very strong defence.

A spokesman for the club said: “We rotated the 19 squad members during their campaign with the objective of giving all players equal playing time. Winning the league was a magnificent achievement for both the boys and their dedicated coaches.”

The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
