Football: Mynydd Isa hornets make history at summer tournament

MYNYDD Isa Hornets under 7s are celebrating after becoming the first team from the club to win its own tournament.

Isa hosts a summer football tournament every year but the club has never fielded a winner until now.

Coach Mike Allen led the the Hornets – who are sponsored by Blackwells Stonecraft – to victory in their age group in the competition, which saw 70 teams descend on Bryn y Baal.

The Hornets played eight games, drawing the first and winning the remaining seven to reach the final.

The showpiece ended in a dramatic penalty shoot-out against Pwllheli, Jack Blackwell scoring the winner and sparking a pitch invasion.
