The Arsenal Amps have been crowned League Cup winners.
The side were unbeaten in all eight of their fixtures and finished top of the table on 20 points to lift their first ever piece of silverware.
Manchester City and Everton came second and third respectively in the nine-team tournament which was hosted at Boldmere St Michaels FC.
Over 90 players competed on the day, and there was an age-range of 30-years spanning between the youngest and oldest players.
“It was a great day to be involved in – the England Amputee FA did a great job of bringing it all together,” commented Arsenal in the Community coach Dan Openshaw.
