FORTY teams and over 1,000 visitors attended Otley Town's junior soccer tournament.

The event at the Old Showground was opened with a perfectly observed minute's silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing.

It was particularly poignant as there was grief sad to Otley's hears with the death of teacher Wendy Fawell in the attack.

The tournament saw the competitive debut of Otley Town's under-8s who it is hoped will have a long promising future in the famous orange jersey. Sunday saw Otley Town's under-14s narrowly missing out on a final spot, with striker Harry Hawkins giving a fantastic display.

Chairman Kai Arter said: "Thank you to everyone who came to the tournament this weekend and supported the club.

"In particular, I would like to thank the volunteers who helped put on this year's event."

Councillor Ray Georgeson congratulated Otley Town AFC on a very well organised and successful tournament. He said it was great fun, and there was a smashing atmosphere.

The winners of the age groups were: Under-9s: Heaton Hawks, Under-10s: Thornton United, Under-11s: Barnoldswick Barons, Under-12s: Whinmoor,

Under-13s: Pannal Sports, Under-14s: Pannal Sports.
