It was Winsford United who started to play the better football and more and more possession created more and more chances. The break through came with about 15 minutes to go, a Lee Duckworth free kick 25 yards or so out on the right flank skipped past static defenders and keeper alike to send the Winsford players into leaps of unbridled delight, they were 1-0 up against the bookies nailed on favourites. The expected New Mills fight back spluttered and chugged and never got into gear, if anything its a wonder Winsford didn't go further ahead. New Mills went down to 10 men near the end when Luke Horrocks hastily retaliated to a firm challenge by throwing the ball at his opponents head, his second yellow card meant he had to go. A couple of clear chances fell to Winsford deep into injury time but it wasn't to be, not that they bothered, they'd deservedly won the cup and given their small band of supporters a great deal to cheer about. Well done Winsford United!
