6th March, 2016
We are pleased to report that our sponsored football team have reached a Cup Final.
The Lytham Town FC U-18 team have successfully reached the final of the Syndicate Youth Trust Cup after a thrilling semi final victory over Broughton FC.
The semi final was played at the superb UCLAN Sports Arena in Preston on Sunday 6th March 2016.
Both teams were evenly matched in a very competitive game, and it was no surprise to see the game go to extra time after finishing goalless during normal time. Lytham took the lead following a curling free kick from Jordan Cartwright just before the end of the first half of extra time. They then went 2-0 up with a cool finish from Dominic Youles. The game could have been sealed soon after, but Lytham missed a penalty following a good save from the Broughton keeper. After a frantic last 10 minutes, the game ended.
Congratulations to Lytham – we look forward to the Final (date yet to be announced).
