4th September, 1987: FIRST SOCCER TROPHY FOR MIDTOWN
FOOTBALL club Midtown United celebrated their first trophy with news of a double sponsorship for the U11s team for the coming season.
In fact it was this age group which brought the club their only cup so far after a 1-0 victory over Forrest Rangers in the final of the Gainsborough Youth Police Trophy.
And it looks as though sponsors Spillers Milling and Gainsborough Express Contracts are backing teams which will bring more success for the club. Last year the U11s got to the final of the same competition only to be beaten by Liberal on penalties. But this time they went one better, winning a bit of silverware and individual certificates (as did every player who took part).
