North East Lincolnshire Council won the national Local Authority Five a side football competition on Saturday June 23 beating Liverpool in the final.

The team won their group by winning all six games, playing teams from Manchester, Liverpool, Southend and Wolverhampton.

 The final was won by beating Sefton, Liverpool, who were last years champions, 5-2.

Councillor Mick Burnett, portfolio holder for tourism and culture said:

"This is a fantastic achievement. It's great that we have social teams like this where staff represent the authority at a national level in their spare time. I already knew that we had talented staff but who knew we were so great at football? Well done to all who took part".
