Holytown Colts 2004s celebrate their success at the Blackpool Easter tournament

Holytown Colts’ 2004s side won the prestigious Blackpool Cup Easter tournament last weekend.

The club had two teams in the competition, which attracts teams from all over the UK, and both the Reds and the Blacks made it through the groups unbeaten to meet in the semi-final.

After a goalless draw the Reds won 4-3 on penalties to go through to the final against Blackpool YMCA and in a close game Colts got the only goal through the second half to lift the trophy.

There was also success for the Colts’ 2005 side who lifted the Plate competition.
