County Cup Round-Up: New Inn Tupton FC v Wilne FC

In the first round of the DCFA Sunday Junior Cup New Inn Tupton FC of The Chesterfield & District Sunday League welcomed their county colleagues…

On a lovely bright morning the first half matched the weather with an end to end encounter that somehow remained goalless.

Within four minutes of the second half the game sprung to life when the visitors took the lead through a Bradley Mellors strike. 0-1

The lead did not last long though when just a minute later a long throw in off the right hand touchline was met by an accurate goal bound header from Steven Miller. 1-1

New Inn had gained an upper hand and it was Miller who got his and the home sides second on 58 minutes when he fired home a neat 12 yard finish. 2-1

The final 30 minutes of the game continued to be a tremendous spectacle with Wilne pushing forward for the equaliser and New Inn searching for a third goal to put the game to bed.

However, the match did not provide any further goals and New Inn Tupton can look forward to an appearance in the 2nd round. Wilne should take away great credit for the part they played in this fantastic Sunday Junior Cup encounter.

Final score: New Inn Tupton FC 2-1 Wilne FC [21]
