Villa FC on Mother’s Day retained the Union Building Contractor Under-14 Football Trophy after beating Black Rangers 1-0 in the final played at Chilinde Primary School ground in Lilongwe.
Adiel Kaduya, who also scooped the Golden Boot Award, scored the lone goal in the second half.
In post-match interview, Villa coach Lovemore Chisambi attributed the victory to proper game planning.
