Barrowby were featured in the Journal 25 years ago after thrashing Hill View 5-1.

The result meant the Under-15s side retained the Grantham Journal Trophy.

Despite the one-sided scoreline, Barrowby were under the cosh for the first 45 minutes of the game and were grateful to some fine goalkeeping from Jonathon West.

However, a breakaway goal from Chris Laidlaw ensured Barrowby went in to the break in the lead.

The second period was a different story as Barrowby laid siege to the Hill View goal.

The half belonged to Scott Jessop who scored a hat-trick, including a penalty, with Gareth Gulson grabbing the fifth. Mark Cooper grabbed a consolation goal for Hill View.
