The Parkinson & Barron Cup Winners have both been decided in two terrific finals held last week @ Bilsborrow FC.

Firstly on Thursday evening in bright sunshine, Ribchester played Broughton in a very evenly contested fixture. Ribchester had a lot of the early play and deservedly went 1-0 up after 10 mins, a lead they held up to half time. Within minutes of the second half resuming Ribchester went 2-0 up and though Broughton had some chances to get back into the game they never really showed the determination to get the end product which was a goal , Ribchester stayed in control for the latter stages of the game and scored two more goals which sealed a great victory for them.
The main Final on Friday evening, Barron Cup , saw two teams from either division, Nets from Division 1 and Hambleton from Division 2.
On paper it looked to be an intriguing Final and it certainly turned out to be a great one. From start to finish both teams attacked each other in an end to end battle which eventually saw Hambleton win comfortably, 8-4.The scores went 1-0,1-1,2-1,2-2 which was how it stayed at half time. Both teams had other chances and no team really were making their mark other than the Nets goalkeeper who seemed to be in fine form. The second half started in the same vein as the first, but it was Hambleton who took the upper hand going 4-2 up before a reply from Nets started to make the game look more interesting. Nets made some changes to personnel and this seemed to give Hambleton the upper hand as the momentum was with the second division team who then went 6-3 up before Nets replied again. Hambleton scored a further two goals as the Nets players heads drooped and in what was a competitive but fair Final it was Hambleton who were celebrating winning the double, both the Second division title & The Barron Cup. Man of the Match was Danny Morris for Hambleton, who scored a memorable hatrick to seal a great season for Hambleton and the Manager, Adam Brooks.
