The First Division Cup Final provided an excellent game that was eventually decided by a penalty shoot-out between Eastham Rangers Colts and Sheridans FC.
An opening period saw both sides playing good football but Sheridans tasted first blood as Leon Jones broke free to rifle a superb effort past the dive of Ben Whelan and kept the lead up to the interval. Colts came faster in the second half and levelled through Andy Rogers and he claimed second on the hour mark.
Both keepers were kept busy as the game ebbed and flowed but Sheridans fought back to level the game late on as Matty Basolu headed home a brave goal.
Full time came with the score 2-2 and the penalty shoot-out produced some excellent goals until Carragher saved the sixth Colts effort and Sheridans claimed the cup with a 6-5 victory.
Both teams chose opposing goalkeepers as man of the match for their stirring performances, so congratulations to Wayne Carragher and Ben Whelan.
One O’Clock Gun brought home the Wirral District FA Junior cup with an excellent team effort that saw them shoot down Oval FC 4-0 with goals coming from Nathan Johnson, Paul Finn and a brace from Morgan Galor, so congratulations go to Kevin Hendrie and his team for this great win.
