Chester and Wirral Football League end of season round-up 2022/23

Congratulations to Lache Vets who secured a superb Cup double over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Last Friday night in the Pele Vets Challenge Cup Final, Lache accounted for FC Farndon Vets as Warren Kelly bagged a double and was joined on the scoresheet by Jim Lehman and Nick Whittaker.

Just two days later in scorching heat, Lache took on Division 1 big hitters, Hooton Vets, in the CWFL Doug Johnson Vets Cup. In what turned out to be a classic, ace marksman Warren Kelly netted another hat-trick as Lache led 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 but Hooton hit back three times through a JP Stanhope double and a Lee Dunbar effort to take to game to penalties.

Amazingly all 11 outfield players took a penalty with Lache eventually winning 10-9 which resulted in wild celebrations for Andrew Dutton’s men.

Blacon Youth Reserves gained revenge for their League Cup defeat against Black Horse by lifting the CWFL Life Members Cup as Danny Davies bagged a brace to go with goals from Aaron Rowlands and Robbie Joinson as Blacon secured a 4-1 victory over Black Horse and make it a league and cup double for Aaron Prices team.

Thanks go to Blacon Youth Club for the use of their ground and amazing pitch for the above three finals.

On Friday night in the Tom Gerraghty Vets cup, Third Division Frodsham Park Vets, who finished bottom, travelled to the home of unbeaten third division champions Neston Nomads Vets. But Frodsham showed that in cup finals league form means nothing as Joseph Morphet headed Frodsham into the lead with the last touch of the first half. Neston struck back with 10 minutes remaining but over 90 minutes

Frodsham put in a brilliant team performance to frustrate the champions and take the game to penalties, eventually winning the shoot-out in sudden death 5-4.
