FOOTBALL teams at a County Durham school are enjoying unprecedented success in competitions this year.

Every boys team from years seven to 11 at Woodham Community Technology College in Newton Aycliffe stands proudly at the top of its respective league - and the girls team has also hit the trophy trail.

With just a handful of games remaining, the school could complete a clean sweep of titles in the Bishop Auckland FA divisions which include teams from Durham to Darlington.

The year seven boys have won 12 of their 14 games and are through to the league cup and county cup finals. They also reached the final of the North-East championships, before losing out to Gateshead.

Team captain Mark Swan now attends Darlington FC Football Academy, with Danny McPhee and Richard Langthorne at the Middlesbrough Academy.

Woodham's year eight team has steadily improved all season and is still fighting for honours in the league cup. The success has been recognised at a higher level, with Luke Smith and Darren Bosomworth representing Bishop Auckland at association level.

The school has fielded a girls team for the first time at Under-13 level and it has started in fine style. The girls have already won the Adidas Community Cup, beating Sunnydale 3-2 in the final and just missed out on a semi-final spot in the regional finals at Huddersfield where they represented Darlington FC.

The year nine boys team have gone through the entire season unbeaten, winning 12 out of 12 in the league.They are also through to the Bishops Cup final and league cup semi-final putting them in line for a treble success.

With one game left, the year ten boys are top of their section and have also reached the semi-final of the Ben Potts Cup.

The year 11 team won its league last year and is looking to repeat the feat. The team is also in the semi-final of the league cup.

Woodham head teacher Steve Harness said: "Our teams are top of the league in more than one sense. What hits you about Woodham's soccer teams is their maturity, commitment and team spirit. I am extremely proud of their achievements."
