THE Wingmakers' Under-14s have capped by a great season for the club by winning the national championship.

The youngsters battled from behind to emerge triumphant on FAW Academy Cup Finals day in Newtown, beating previously unbeaten Cambrian & Clydach in their final 2-1 thanks to a brace of goals from Jay Harvey.

Coach Julian Foster said: "The academy are very proud of the lads.

"It was a great effort from all the players in the squad to get us to the final and they got their rewards with a good win over a very good Cambrian side.”

South Wales champions Cambrian took the lead through a defensive mix-up.

But Airbus - who beat The New Saints in the semi-finals to be crowned North Wales champions - equalised on the stroke of half-time through Harvey.

The same player settled the contest midway through the second half after a corner was not cleared.

Harvey's double means the Wingmakers' academy has now been triumphant on national finals day for three of the last four years.

Academy director Lee Starkey says: "The lads had worked very hard in preparation for the final with extra  training sessions and it showed in the final.

"This squad of players have been together for a couple of years now and our aim was to try to make the final, so it was great to achieve this and eventually win it.

"Some of our players had reached the finals two years ago when they were U12s, so to go back two years later and again represent Airbus is fantastic."
