NETHERTON RESERVES WIN RICHARDSON CUP!
Netherton 2nd team pulled off a stunning 2-0 victory over Berry Brow
in the Richardson Cup Final held at Lepton Highlanders, making
amends for the heavy league defeat a week earlier by the same
rivals. Netherton were by far the more positive team in a tense first
half, and the game sprung to life minutes before half time when Dan
Rodgers latched onto Elliot Wilkinsons fine through ball to coolly slot
home. Minutes later Ryan O'Connor made it two capitalising on a
defensive slip to fire home to send the travelling support wild.
The seconds were solid throughout the second half with Jon Sewell
and Josh Harling solid at the heart of defence and five time cup
winning keeper Adam Robertshaw was largely untroubled. Abbas
Hussain worked hard in midfield and was helped out by the
dangerous wingers Paolo Margaglione and Joel Nelson who gave
the Berry Brow defence the runaround. With the clock running down
manager Neil Wood sent on the pacy Mikey Thomas to capitalise
on the tiring Brow defence and Dean Midwood to help out the back
four, however he was sent off in the dying moments after reacting
to a brutal assault by the Brow captain.
