Ashton Ladysmith are celebrating after scooping their first trophy in eight years.

The triumphant Rose Hill Road team travelled to Prestwich to take on Deane and Derby in the Calverley Cup Final.

Captain Janak Patel spoke to Reporter Sport after the game.

He said: “It was a special day for the club, and it was not only pleasing for the current players but also the club’s longest serving members.

“The fact that this will be our final season in the NMCL made it even more exciting, but we’re already looking forward to what the GMCL will bring.”

Patel attributed the club’s success to everyone involved, adding: “I think it’s important to note that it wasn’t just the 11 players that played in the final that should take credit.
