Amble Utd...1 Wallsend Town...0 (aet)
Pin Point Recruitment Combination Cup Final
AMBLE travelled to Ashington to play in the Combination Cup Final against Wallsend Town hoping to do the double having already won the Division One title.
Wallsend started the brightest and had one or two good chances, but could not put them away.
Amble came into the game a bit more and had several chances but they also could not convert them into goals, leaving the score 0-0 at half-time.
After the interval, the game carried on in the same vein and at the final whistle, the score remained 0-0, taking the game into extra-time.
Wallsend kicked off the first period of extra-time, but it was Amble who were playing the better football with Adam Shanks and Josh Hay going very close on two occasions but the score at the end of the first period was still 0-0.
In the last 15 minutes, Amble once again were in the ascendancy and took the lead in the 112th minute when Sean Taylor fired home from close range (1-0).
Wallsend tried very hard but they could not find an equaliser and the game was won by Amble, which gave them the double of league champions and Combination Cup winners and they still have a chance to make it three when they play the University on Saturday, in the Subsidiary Cup Final.
Amble from: A Patterson, R Douglas, C Graham, R Stewart, D King, L Harker, D Riddell, S Taylor, A Shanks, J Hay, R Gair, B Aisbitt, B Wake, R Hume, A Turvey, R Brown. Tavern man-of-the-match: Chris Graham. Match sponsor: Kelly Construction, Master Builders.
