Under-16 Girls Win Lancashire County Cup

5 May 2017

Victory Over Preston North End Secures Trophy

Goals from Ellie Spooner and Nyah Cartwright helped Blackpool's under-16 girls beat Preston North End 2-1 in the Lancashire County Cup final. 

The Seasiders started the game brightly and took the lead from the penalty spot, with captain Spooner slotting calmly into the bottom corner. 

That lead was doubled prior to half-time when Cartwright looped the 'keeper from a tight angle to put the team in a strong position.

Preston hit back after the interval though and pulled a goal back on 47 minutes, before the bar denied them an equaliser in the 70th minute. 

However, Blackpool dug deep in the closing stages to see the result out and lift the trophy.
