Heywood Irish Centre completed a District League and Barlow Cup double on Tuesday night beating Newsome 3-2. Nathan Eastwood opened the scoring for Heywood’s on 10 minutes when cutting in from the left he hit a low left foot shot just inside the goal post and into Newsome’s’ net. Kieron Mayall made it 2-0 to Heywood’s with a goal almost the same as the opener, cutting in from the left and hitting a low right foot shot home.
Kyle Walton made it 2-1 on 30 minutes with a solo run and powerfully hit shot. Heywood’s led 2-1 at half-time and increased their lead with an own goal with 15 minutes to go following a scramble in the six-yard box following a corner kick. Shortly afterwards Newsome’s keeper was dismissed for a foul and the substitute keeper came on and saved the penalty to keep Newsome in the game. Josimar Bradshaw beat the Heywood’s keeper to a cross into the box on 79 minutes to make it 3-2 to set up a nail-biting finish but Heywood’s’ held on to win the Barlow Cup.
The League’s Life President Frank Beaumont and his wife Anne presented the trophies and the man of the match award, the Frank Beaumont Trophy was presented to Finlay Madigan the Heywood’s’ keeper.
