Buxton Bulls brought the curtain down on a memorable maiden season, after a final-day victory that secured their 100 per cent winning record.
The Bulls’ 34-16 win at home to Boston Buccaneers was their 11th win in as many outings.
The win was even more impressive considering Boston entered the game previously unbeaten.
The result ensures the Bulls finish top of the Midlands Merit League - a remarkable achievement seeing as the club only started out less than a year ago.
Head coach Tommy McGuigan said: “I can’t believe how this season has gone. To start off the season with absolutely nothing and to be where we are now is a massive achievement.
“I can’t thank the lads enough for the hard work and commitment they have put in.
“To go eleven games unbeaten and win two trophies shows just where we are at.
“Our aim moving forward is to continue to grow as a club.”
McGuigan confirmed the club wish to enter into the Midlands Premier Division next summer, where they will have regular weekly fixtures against the best teams in the area.
He also thanked the numerous local sponsors for their support throughout the season.
He added: “Without them none of this would have been possible.”
