West London Army cadets scoop National Football trophies

27 March 2012

The long road to Cumbria from West London was worthwhile for 204 White City (Para) and 202 Acton (Royal Engineers) Detachments of Middlesex and North West London Army Cadets. They journeyed northwards in hopes that both the Seniors and Juniors National football trophies might be theirs – a double whammy happened last in 2009. Both teams dreams were realised and they scooped the senior and junior national championship trophies, bringing them back to London.

204 White City cadets have now won two years in a row, successfully defending and retaining their title as best ACF senior football team across the UK. 202 Acton cadets made a huge improvement on last years effort grabbed best ACF junior football team across the UK in great style winning every single game.

Colonel Mark Hodson TD , Sector Commandant said “ This is tremendous news. Well done to all those involved, adult volunteers for making it happen and cadets for playing so determinedly well alike. This is really good news, everyone should be rightfully proud”.

Training starts right away in West London to ensure that an equally good result is achieved next year.
