Sunday League outfit Gym United enjoyed the greatest season in their short history after lifting trophies in all four competitions they entered.

Gym, who play their 
home games at Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds, are 
managed by Walsham-le-Willows defender Matt Morton and include players such 
as Bury Town’s Jack Brame.

They lifted the Frames Conservatories Bury and District Sunday League Division One title for the fourth consecutive season and also came out on top in three knockout competitions.

“We have had great success in our four years together so far, but this season really was the best so far,” said player-manager Morton.

“You can only win four 
trophies in a season, so to do the maximum is emphatic and shows not only the strength of the team, but also the whole squad.

“It’s only the second time the quad has been achieved — it was done once by Bardwell, who were also a fantastic team built on ability and spirit just like us.

“I could not be more proud of the players and everybody connected with the club — you really cannot beat winning like this with your best mates beside you.”

Andrew Wood, who also plays for Walsham, netted five goals in their Suffolk Sunday Cup final triumph, while Gym also triumphed in the finals of the Open Cup — for the third time in four years — and Floodlit Cup.
