In what was a very busy week for the CWFL which saw four cup finals being played at brilliant hosts Cammell Lairds.
Last Monday was the start as Mersey Royal Vets faced off against Hooton Vets in the Doug Johnson Trophy. It was Hooton who started best but John Gann the Royal goalkeeper was in inspired form as he made some great saves to keep the score line level.
Just before half time Chrissy McGinn gave Royal the lead as his deflected shot looped in, early in the second half two quickfire strikes first from Craig Griffiths, then from Robbo Courtenay sealed the win as Royal emerged winners.
On Wednesday night in the Tom Garraghty Memorial Trophy Capenhurst Vets defeated Parkfield Rangers vets 5-2 to lift the Trophy.
Friday night was the turn of Cestrian Alex against Neston Nomads Reserves in the CWFL Cayzer Shield Final. The game finished 1-1 which meant the tie went to penalties which saw Neston Nomads emerge 4-2 winners to lift the shield with John Tudor, Martin Marshall, Rob Marrsy and Joel Hall all netting in the shootout for Netson.
On Saturday, Premier Division leaders Unitor were looking to add a first piece of silverware in what they would hope to be the first of a possible treble as they came up against Shaftsbury Youth.
The game finished 2-2 after 90 minutes and penalties it was. Shaftes goalkeeper Tom Hardy was the hero, saving two penalties to see Shaftsbury win the Trophy.
Unitor still have a chance of a double with the league title looking to be a formality they will look to add the Northern Cup this coming Saturday as they play Upton JFC at Middlewich for a 2pm kick-off.

First off Helsby 2nd conceded four but hit eight in reply as they defeated Black Horse, Josh Clayton scored four and Will Conway, Josh Elverstone, Sam Stephens and Jordan Whitby all got in on the act with Mark Cooper and Kynan Mason both hitting doubles for Black Horse.
