ALSAGER Town boss Greg Clowes admits he has his eye on a couple of the club's youngsters after they bounced back from disappointment to win the Crewe and District FA Youth Cup.
Alsager Town U18s have had another impressive season, but almost failed to land any silverware. They came second in the County Minor Youth League and lost to Eccleshall in the Sentinel Cup final.
But they finally got some reward when they came from a goal behind to overcome Sandbach United to lift the cup on Sunday.
Clowes said: 'It is all credit to manager Graham Mc-Garry, who does a great job. They should have won the other cup final after dominating the game but were a little short up front. We do have some good young lads coming through. I think the captain Steve Jones has real potential.'
Sandbach striker Craig Parker gave his side the lead with a firm header past keeper Ashley Picking early on in the second half.
But Town's Rob Egley saw his cross handled in the box, and skipper Jones confidently converted the spot kick to level matters.
With Adrian McGarry and Dwyane Spence winning the midfield battle, it was Spence's forward run which brought about the winning goal.
A free kick was awarded for a foul on the midfielder and John Sheldon's sweet left-foot strike from 20 yards gave the keeper no chance.
Meanwhile, first-team defender-turned-striker Wayne Brotherton cleaned up at the annual player-of the-season awards. The centre-half, who bagged 30 goals after being pushed up front for the final few months of the campaign, lifted the Supporters' Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year awards.
Young Player of the Year was Karl Espley, while Manager's Player of the Year was Steve Elks. Reserve team boss Shaun Hollinshead handed Danny Chapman the Clubman of the Year prize.
