My Dixie beat Blackpool to claim Ultimate Football Easter Cup

Both sides played a tactical first half with neither team wanting to give their opponent a shot on goal. Some delightful one touch passing provided striker Jack Hague with a shot on goal after nine minutes played and he took his chance to score. Steve Charles’ Blackpool moved the ball around the pitch well, but they lacked inspiration going forward and their goal scoring efforts were few and far between. After the break, Blackpool re-grouped and they initially had more possession, however, a counter attack from My Dixie mid-way through the half opened up a chance for Warner to seal the win.

While the title was won by a single point, The Old Guard have played some fine football throughout the season.

Groovy Gang were looking to win for a second week in succession but they faced a well resourced Hedgehog FC.

Sam Dent, The Groovy Gang captain, was first to open scoring with an audacious shot from some distance, chipping Nick Sykes in the Hedgehog goal.

Jake Lonergan was quick to respond for Hedgehog and managed to net two in the game, while fellow Hedgehog player Jamie Thomas was also on the scoresheet.

Groovy Gang’s Ben Ward scored with his first effort on target for the team and later on there was a special individual goal from man of the match Dent.

"Nevertheless, each time Groovy Gang took the lead there was a response from Sykes’ side and the 3-3 draw was reflective of a fairly contested match with little to separate the teams.
