PANSHANGER Yellows Leopards Under-11s clinched the MHRML Division Three title by beating John Warner 1-0.

It was hosts John Warner Blues who threatened to score first but they were kept at bay.

Panshanger had chances as Billy Zienkowicz hit the bar and Terri Harvey just missed the target.

With scores level at half-time it was all to play for after the break.

Near the end Leopards' scored on the counter attack through Billy Kensley to send the away support wild.

Almost straight away Warner were awarded a penalty, but stopper Armitt dived superbly to his left to keep out the kick.
