The U11’s Reds beat the Middleton Blues 6-3 in the AFC Semi Final League Cup Match, securing their position in the Final.
It was a tough well matched game with equal possession against a worthy opponent, with both teams putting in a solid effort fitting of a semi-final match, and half time saw the game level at 2 goals a piece. However, Hyde gained momentum in the second half scoring a further 3 goals before Middleton managed to score again, just prior to Hyde securing the final goal of the match before full time.
We are so proud of the lads as disregarding illness of 3 of the team and being a player down, their work ethic and effort was unwavering and their determination to win was faultless.
Well done Reds on a well deserved victory and securing your position in the Final. The Final will take place at Curzon Ashton FC on Saturday 25th May 9am Kick-Off
