SALE United u-13 Jets have been crowned champions in the County Cup Final - at the third time of asking.

On March 30 at Runcorn FC’s ground, the boys claimed the trophy versus Knutsford- based Egerton FC.

Sale took early control of the game and were rewarded with a goal from Mo Battulga to make it 1 – 0 going into the break.

Further goals from Will Pacitto and James Lillas gave the boys a 3 – 0 lead with Egerton hitting their only goal just five minutes from the end of the match which ended 3 – 1 to the victorious Sale side.

“After losing the previous two County Cup Finals, I think if we had lost again this year I would have given up,” said Sale’s proud manager Danny Thomson, who has coached the boys for more than five years.

On April 4 Sale United are hosting a ‘Sensational Seventies Night’ at the Sale Masonic Hall, featuring Abba tribute act ‘Abba Again’, to help raise funds for the Under 13s tour to Holland.

Tickets are available from the Sale United office on 0161 905 3088 or 07801 966620.
