Netherton U12 Wagtails came through as victors in their well fought U12 League Cup Final against Deeping Rangers on Sunday.
Pre match expectations suggested it would be a tight game and so it played out with Deeping taking a 1-0 lead into Half Time. This was despite Netherton playing good football albeit without really testing the Deeping keeper.
Not too sure what was said to the lads at half time, by chief motivators, Chris, Dean and Shaun but it worked the lads came out firing, making their tackles, winning the second ball and these efforts earned them a deserved equaliser from Danny White who also went on to earn the Man of The Match Award.
A tense last few minutes ensued before the final whistle with the game going straight to a penalty shoot out. This played out evenly until Netherton Keeper, Eryk pulled off a top drawer save, one which would eventually take Netherton to finish line as 4-3 winners and with it the title of 2017-18 PDJAL League cup winners....Well Done lads!!!!!
