Thorpe Giants 2-4 White Rose Allstars

White Rose Allstars completed the Junior Challenge Cup double with victory over Thorpe Giants in the Blackburn Cup Final.

Both teams contributed to an entertaining first half which was an excellent advert for this age group. The teams were separated by a penalty awarded to White Rose Allstars. The second half started at a similar pace with Thorpe Giants equalising before White Rose Allstars responded swiftly. Two long range efforts saw White Rose extend their lead before a well taken goal reduced the arrears for Thorpe Giants.

The atmosphere within the ground encouraged the players and contributed to an enjoyable evening.

The presentations to players and match officials were made by Heavy Woollen FA Council Member, Stephen Land who refereed the Final in 2003.

Thank you to Ossett United for hosting the Final and to everyone in attendance for their support.
