PANSHANGER Whites Under-12s finished the season with a richly deserved 3-3 draw against Ware Clarets.

The Ware side opened the scoring early in the first half.

Whites pulled a goal back when they were awarded a penalty, which Bailey Rose scored after it had to be retaken.

Clarets, however, went into half-time 3-1 ahead.

The Panshanger team came out fighting in the second half and began to use the wings productively.

Rhys Monger made it 3-2 as Clarets were unable to take control of the game.

When Whites' top scorer Hill levelled with his 21st goal of the season, the comeback was complete and a draw salvaged.

After the final whistle Jack McCloskey was named as Panshanger's man of the match.

This was the last game for manager Nick Rose, who has decided to move onto new horizons.

Rose thanked all the boys for their hard work and commitment they had shown over the past four years and said he wished them all well in their future.

He also thanked his assistant coach Paul Wetherell for all his support and all at Panshanger FC.

An outstanding commitment trophy was presented to Whites' goalkeeper Joseph Byrne.

In the four years the team has been together the stopper has not missed a single game.
