High fives for Bluck Cup winners Broadway United Reserves

Evesham Editorial 24th Apr, 2017   0

BROADWAY United Reserves lifted the Bluck Cup on Sunday evening after a thrilling 5-2 victory over Bretforton Old Boys Reserves in the final.

Bretforton took a first half lead through Booth and it looked likely to be the winner until injury time when Steele’s goal sent the game into extra time.

Broadway, despite having their keeper dismissed, grew stronger in extra time and goals from Steele, Cooper, Heritage and Harry Parker saw them home.

Griffiths grabbed a second goal for Old Boys but this could not prevent Broadway lifting the first of a possible three trophies this season.

There was penalty heartache for Evesham league clubs in county cup finals.

Sun Inn lost out 4-2 on spot kicks to Hucclecote in the GFA Sunday Intermediate Cup after a 2-2 draw, whilst Harvington played out an entertaining goalless encounter with Mostyn Rangers Reserves in the WFA Sunday Minor Cup before losing 5-4 on penalties.

Offenham Rovers reached the Express-Funding Mick Godwin Cup final by defeating Alderton 2-1 with goals from Brain and Smelc. Ryan scored for Alderton.
