POTTERS Bar Crusaders Under-11s defeated title-rivals Park View Rangers 4-1 to win the Super Division championship.

The last game of the season saw the two sides battle it out for the title.

The first half was a closely fought contest, but it was Potters Bar Crusaders first on the score-sheet with a brilliant shot from Freddie Walker which saw the ball fly into the back of the net.

Park View Rangers equalised at the beginning of the second half.

But Crusaders fought back with a fantastic goal from Hughie Gillen from the edge of the box producing an exquisite chip that flew over the keeper and into the net.

With Kyle Buckley-Davies working tirelessly in the middle of the park and Tom Marlow, fighting for every ball, it was only a matter of time before Crusaders scored for a third time.

This came when Crusaders had another certain goal, only for it to be cleared off the line by the defenders hand.

Crusaders captain, Scott Hanley, took a superbly taken penalty into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal making the score 3-1.

The fourth and final goal from Crusaders saw Hughie Gillen finish in style with another brilliant strike.

The remainder of the half saw some fantastic defending from Crusaders back four, Brandon Mhangami, Sam Whittington, Lewis Hollett and Buster Charalambous making it impossible for the opposition to score.

With invaluable support from Matthew Papa, Rohan Sharma and Robert Orchard and superb performances from George Avgousti and William Vooght, the final score was 4-1.

Potters Bar Crusaders have had a great season.

They have won the Under-11 Super Division League and are also in the League Cup final on Saturday, May 9, at Waltham Abbey Football Club.
