Tonight saw Wrens take on local rivals Thornton Cleveleys in the final of the Lancashire Shield at the county ground in Leyland with both sides eager to lift the 1st silverware of the season.
The match started well with both sides trying to play attacking football but it was Wrens who had the best chances with Michael Clark, Mark Fiddler and Ric Seear having the best chances to break the deadlock. Frustratingly for Wrens the half ended goalless and some of the management teams much needed tonic was required to keep the momentum going in the 2nd half.
Scott and Marks therapy worked well for a while in the 2nd half as Anthony Pearson went close just after the restart. Despite good performances from the entire team few chances went Wrens even though Thornton were denied many many chances. The managements worst fears were realised on 84 minutes as Thornton snatched the lead. Despite the introduction of Steve Creelman and Tom Watson as 2nd half substitutes Wrens were unable to penetrate the Thornton goal leaving the final score as Wrens 0 Thornton 1.
Congratulations to Steve Breakell and his lads for turning this years final into an excellent advertisement for West Lancs football and best wishes in next seasons Northern Counties Cup. Next week sees Wrens return to league action with a must win match away to league leaders Charnock Richard with a 3pm kick off.
