A MANAGER is reflecting proudly on a season that has seen an ‘unbelievable’ turnaround.

Mark Borzomato’s first campaign in charge of Winwick Tigers under 14s concluded with a league and cup treble - just a year after being relegated.

“Last season in Division Two of the Warrington Junior Football League they had a tough time – they won three games, and I think one of those was because the opponents couldn’t field a team.

“They came bottom and got relegated – the low point being when only eight players turned up to a game.

“That said, they played on and if honest that proved a turning point as whilst being beaten, they competed well and actually gained belief in themselves.

“The team stuck together, added a few other players, and this season have been incredible.”

Tigers won the Alf Holt Cup by beating St Helens Athletic 4-3 at Victoria Park in front of a couple of hundred spectators.

That was on the heels of a league season in which they lost only two games, closing a 16-point gap to go up as Division Three champions after a play-off - another 4-3 win against St Helens.

This also marked a huge turnaround in the one season as in the first home league game of the campaign Tigers lost 8-2 at home against their nearest rivals.

They won the Divisional Cup too, defeating Appleton South 4-2 to secure a treble of success

And then to cap off the campaign they won the Winwick FC Team of the Year prize across all of the club’s age groups.

“The turnaround is unbelievable and their attitude, commitment and support for each other second to none,” added Borzomato, an investment director with Liverpool firm SPARK Impact Limited.

“As a result, the silverware is simply unbelievable. It really is an unbelievable story and I am so proud of them.”
