The UCS old boys first team, Gower Allstars, have won the Camden MA league Premier Division title by a record 10 points, securing their third championship in 10 years under manager Phil Glyn.

Having had a mid-table finish in 2013/14, the last campaign proved to be one of Gower’s most successful seasons, as they also reached three cup semi-finals.

Glyn puts the vast improvement down to having a well-balanced team, largely thanks to a successful recruitment dive in pre-season.

“The addition of three or four new players last summer filled the gaps in what was already a strong nucleus of players and made all the difference to the shape of our side – most notably our player of the season, centre-back James Dillon, and top goal scorer Jules Norton.

“This side is talented, mature and experienced and now has the ability to win plenty more silverware for a few more years to come.”

Tufnell Park Rangers had won the title for the previous three years in a row, but Gower Allstars dismantled that dominance, winning 12 of their 14 games to finish 10 points ahead of their rivals, while scoring 55 goals.

Winning the crown was a fitting send-off for striker Owen Blandy, the captain for the season, who is retiring after 10 successful years playing for the club.
