Under 14 Cup Final
St Josephs 0-3 Stretford Utd

This Under 14 final proved to be a very disappointing affair with St Josephs losing to a Stretford side they had beaten less than three weeks previous. The first half was pretty even with neither side playing the football that they are capable of. Stretford took the lead when from a foul throw by Joeys, they got the ball in to the corner and when their player crossed there was no one marking the Stretford forward who gave Lee Buggle in goal no chance with a well taken header. Joeys then tried to push forward and could have equalised but the ball seemed to stick under Ciaran Williamson whose shot went to the left and wide. HT0-1
The second half continued in the same way but it took a dramatic twist when Conor Byrne was unlucky to receive a second yellow card for a tackle. Joeys went 2-0 down shortly after but they then started to fight for every ball and when they were awarded a penalty with about 15 minutes remaining everyone thought that this might spur them on. However the twice taken penalty was saved and with just a few minutes on the clock Stretford got their third. Best for Joeys were Luke Doyle, Jeff Sutton and David O Shea
