THE look on the faces of some of these young players is almost as difficult to fathom as the style of shorts on display.

The seven-a-side team from Allington were celebrating victory in a small schools soccer tournament back in 1987.

The tournament was played at Huntingtower Road School and Allington came out on top with 30 points - three more than runners-up Gonerby Hill Foot.

Paul Robinson was Allington’s star, grabbing nine goals while Philip Bingley struck six times despite missing four games through injury.
