THE INAUGURAL Litlington Village Cup raised £300 for the village's football team.
The four-team tournament was won by R.H.S United, but the hosts were also winners, as the cash will allow them to enter a Saturday and Sunday team in the BIS League for the coming season.
Opening the round robin competition with a match against Bassingbourn, Litlington surprised their higher league opponents by winning 2-0 thanks to two James Evans goals.
R.H.S United also started well, winning their first two games, 3-0 against Great Chishill, and 2-1 against Bassingbourn. They had to come from behind in the second match after Craig Hunter had fired Bassingbourn into the lead.
