And head coach Paul Jubb, who oversees training and match fixtures is very pleased with the way his sides' performed.

Discussing his sides' triumphs, head coach Jubb said: "I'm extremely proud. We train five hours a week and it's good to know that after all the hard work they've put in, it has been rewarded by winning the leagues.

"It has been a very stop start season due to covid, but it has been generally a very good season, because it has given the players something to look forward to.

"Even when we went to play in November, it got cancelled because of lockdown restrictions, however it then got moved to December, so it still gave them something to look forward to.

"It has been like this throughout the season. The last time we played was in December, however we managed to finish the season off in April and May after restrictions were eased, so we've done okay.

"We're just really happy that the league kept going and I can't emphasise that enough."

Jubb also explained the feeling around camp- in particular family members and the players.

He said: "The feeling is great. All the parents and carers have put their pictures up with the players holding the trophy on Facebook.

"All their friends have congratulated them too.

"They're all over the moon, just like Jamie Vardy was lifting the FA Cup against Chelsea.

"It means just as much to them winning their competitions, as it would with a pro lifting an FA Cup."

With the season over, Jubb discussed his sides' plans for the off-season.

He said: "We will carry on training for the five hours that we do a week.

"We will also enter any national tournaments that we have a chance of going to. It could include tournaments at Liverpool and Lytham St Annes.

"And next season, lets hope our sides can remain in the divisions they've been promoted to."
