The red carpet was rolled out for the players of the Littlehampton Town Youth Football Club as their successes were celebrated at an awards ceremony.

More than 500 people filled The Littlehampton Academy for the event on Saturday, which club secretary Paula Merridue said ‘celebrates all their achievements and effort this season’.

The chairman’s award went to Ben Challen in the under-seven’s team for overcoming what Paula described as ‘a horrific injury to his femur’, and she said he ‘still gave this season 110 per cent’.

The group has 11 teams, ranging from under-seven’s to under-15’s, and three have won winter cups in the Arun District League, including the players pictured.

On the night, the club raised £530.20 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, a cause close to club chairman Mark Spence’s heart as his daughter Megan suffered from leukaemia before going into remission.

Here are the full list of winners:
