Having secured the League title on the Saturday before, being unbeaten this season, they started the Final as favourites. Birkdale started well but could not breakdown the Formby defence. Clarke & Lea both went on dribbling runs but could not find the key final pass. In defence, Jacques & Casterton ensured that Formby opportunities were limited. After 20 mins, Lea was fouled. Farrelly stepped up from 30 yards and fired his trademark free kick into the top of the net. Birkdale 1-0. This stirred Formby JSC into life and they starred to press Birkdale back. A Formby shot from the edge of the area went narrowly wide. Just on half time, the equalizer arrived via O’Neill for Formby, a clean strike, leaving Birkdale’s keeper, Gailey, no chance. As the second half began, both teams were fighting for the cup. As the game went on, Birkdale looked like they were going to get the goal to put them ahead, however, they couldn’t find the back of the net after consecutive chances. With the injection of Brewster’s pace, Birkdale started to exploit the spaces behind the Formby defence. Then a chance came in the middle of the second half. Following a corner, Formby failed to clear and after a scramble for the ball, it fell to Farrelly who hit his second of the match lopping a volley over the keeper. 2-1 to Birkdale. Birkdale were now on top and pressed for the 3rd. Chances fell to Brewster & Burrill but Birkdale couldn’t find the net. Birkdale played the game out and when the final whistle arrived, the Double was secured after a tense final played in great spirit with Formby playing their part. A great team performance, reflective of the season. Well done to all the lads from all at Birkdale United. Related Comments comments!
