Stockport Senior Cup Final 2010

... the football season continues (hurrah !) and it was off to Lambeth Grove, home of Woodley Sports yesterday evening for a Cup Final to watch - the Stockport Senior Cup Final between Cheadle Town Reserves and Linotype/Cheadle Heath Nomads. I'd done this particular Final a few years ago (here and here) when it was held at Stockport County FC - and that game also featured one of tonight's teams - as in the Nomads.

A glorious early evening weather-wise - and a healthy crowd too - saw Town take an early lead - before it all went horribly wrong, leading to a 1-5 scoreline at half-time. As is my luck, I took up position at the wrong end (!!) but ... that's life ! In the second half Cheadle Town pushed on a bit (and Nomads did slightly "remove foot from pedal" a bit), getting it back to 5-2, before the goal of the game sealed it for one of the few teams I know of with a slash (/) in their name. I didn't stop for the presentations as I had a lift (and many thanks to Dave for same !), but overall it was a well deserved victory - some pictures at
