Potteries League: Cheadle United End Long Wait For County Cup Success

Cheadle United rounded off a great week for the club by chalking up an 11-0 home win over YMCA to move into the promotion spots in Division One of the Potteries and District Sunday League..

Matthew Nutt (4), Paul Donnelly (3), Jamie Tee (2), Rob Cope and Paul Callear were their scorers.

That followed a 2-1 win over Stafford outfit Seighford to lift the Staffs FA TB Williamson last Thursday night at Stone Dominoes’ Wellbeing Park.

Matt Nutt and Ben Carr gave Cheadle a 2-0 half-time lead, but Seighford got themselves back in the game in the second half where they pulled one back.

However, United stood firm to keep Seighford at bay, with Pete Johnson, Kyle Dovey and Paul Donnelly, in particular, needing to work hard at the back.

Although the club are past winners of the Sentinel Sunday Cup, they have never, in 47 years the club has been running, won a Staffs FA County Cup.

And with promotion now a good possibility and the Division Two Cup final to look forward to, secretary Tony Webster is hopeful the good times as returning to the club which once graced the Premier Division before falling on hard times and being forced to resign and then re-form a couple of seasons ago.

“Things are going very well at the moment, but it is still early days. Hopefully, our county cup victory is a sign of things to come for the club. We will take one step at a time, but it would be nice to get back into the Premier Division – that’s our aim.

Webster paid tribute to the supporters who turned out to cheer them on to cup success at Yarnfield.

“There was a big following from Cheadle and it was great to see so many people there supporting us. It was great for the players who stepped up to the plate.
