The ten boys and one girl who make up the Lydd Grasshoppers Under 9’s football team have completed an outstanding season, winning 15 of their 16 fixtures and making it to the semi-final of the cup.

Chief coach Roy Geddes said: "It has been an incredible season for the squad, who have matured brilliantly since the team was formed four years ago, and they thoroughly deserve their award.”

“We are grateful to EDF Energy who has sponsored us over the last few seasons. The power station is just down the road so it seems the perfect partnership. We are looking forward to another brilliant season together next year, sponsoring both the boys and girls teams."

Ian Stewart, Station Director at Dungeness B said: “We take our role in the community very seriously, so it is great to get the opportunity to show our support for a well-deserved local group like Lydd Grasshoppers FC.  We congratulate the team on an excellent season.”
