The boys were outclassed by their outstanding opponents Cashmere Technical in the first half of the final on Saturday, which was played in front of a packed English Park.
Technical came out firing and scored two early goals in quick succession, which ultimately proved to be the difference despite a late rally from the boys in blue.
The rams played with a new found confidence in the second half and created a couple of dangerous chances but it wasn’t meant to be, the score ending 2-0.
A special mention to veteran United striker Michael White who was a handful as always and went painfully close in the final minutes, only to be foiled by a spectacular save from Tech goalkeeper Danny Knight.
Despite the loss, we are extremely proud of our first team for the effort and results throughout their English Cup run. It’s been a tough season, but it is a credit to the side that we fought so hard to the end in the final whilst being considered heavy underdogs.
Congratulations to Cashmere Technical on an outstanding season and a thoroughly deserved cup win
