Chadderton FC’s Falcon Fire Stadium hosted Manchester FA Saturday Amateur Cup final between Eccles United and AFC Middleton on 25th March.
AFC Middleton saw multiple chances to give themselves the lead but couldn’t find the finish as Jordan Hamilton in Eccles United goal pulled off fantastic saves to keep his side in the game including a crucial penalty save.
The disappointment for AFC Middleton was brief as the corner kick was met by Liam Murray who headed the ball into the net on verge of half-time.
Eccles United, determined to find an equaliser, looked more of a likely side to score in the second half. Their attempts, however, did not pay off as AFC Middleton’s defence fought hard to maintain their one-goal advantage until full time.
AFC Middleton’s skipper, Liam Murray was awarded man of the match award. Manchester FA would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of Manchester FA Saturday Amateur Cup, AFC Middleton, and thank the finalist Eccles United, match officials, fans, and Chadderton FC for providing the venue.
