Penwortham Town emerged as victors over Arkwrights in the Presidents cup final, after a brace from Tom Seed and a long range effort from Carl Busby ensured Town ran out 3-1 winners.
The game, played on an excellent surface at Bamber Bridge FC, was an extremely tight affair, with Penwortham Town having the better of the early chances. Tom Seed fired over from a long range effort on 15 minutes, and the same player put a header over the bar just 5 minutes later.
Town failed to capitalise on their early pressure, and they lived to regret it as on 23 minutes, Arkwrights took the lead from the penalty spot. Arkwrights captain Andrew Danson fired home the resulting kick after excellent work from tricky Arkwrights winger, Tom Kane. The rest of the half was end to end, and just before the half time whistle, Penwortham Town's winger James Hall, put a delicious cross into the box but it was just ahead of the out stretched foot of the Town Centre Forward and Arkwrights went into the interval holding a 1-0 lead.
The 2nd half started in much the same vain as the 1st half, with Penwortham having the better of the early chances. Another opportunity fell to the busy Town number 8 Tom Seed as he forced a save from Arkwrights keeper Gaz Sym and on 63 minutes Carl Busby headed over. The scores where level on 70 minutes and it took a penalty to bring Town level with Tom Seed scoring from the spot and the same player doubled his and Town's tally on 80 minutes, finishing from close range after a scramble in the box.
The game was sewn up in injury time, when Carl Busby launched a clearance high into the sky, from just inside his own half. The ball somehow found its way into the back of the net after a fumble by the Arkwrights keeper, to spark wild celebrations from the Town players, fans and backroom staff.
League President Dave Carlisle presented Presidents Cup to Penwortham captain Tom Sandells and the souvenir medals to the players and match officials. The Man-of-the-Match award to Penwortham Town’s Tom Seed.
The game was superbly handled by referee Dan Hooton and he had excellent support from his Assistants Jamie Law and Keith Martin and 4th official Phil Ryan.
