Great Sutton Ladies 0Macclesfield Town Girls 3
MINNOWS Great Sutton set out to complete an amazing giant-killing act at Barnton FC in the under 14s Cheshire Youth Cup final – but Macclesfield spoilt the party with an assured display.
In wet conditions, Macc took the lead midway though the first half. Before half-time that lead had doubled.
Sutton came out after half-time and took control off the game but despite having the majority of the play they couldn’t break down the Macc defence.
A goal in the final minutes sealed Sutton’s fate.
Manager Steve Simmons said: “It was a great achievement for such a small club like ours to reach the final, but it just wasn’t our day.
“The girls have been fantastic all season and we are still in two cup competitions. The support again from the players’ family and friends was fantastic and I would like to thank them all.”
Great Sutton Ladies are recruiting players for next season’s U12s, 14s and 16s teams. For further information, call Steve Simmons on 07732 573222.
