A DOMINANT season finished in dramatic but fitting style.

That was the story for Northwich Victoria’s under 13s after they added the Mid-Cheshire Cup to their league title.

Their road to glory culminated in a heart-stopping cup final against Grappenhall, where they showed their resilience to come from two goals down before winning the tie on penalties.

The cup final win capped a superb season for the team, who won their Mid-Cheshire League title having lost just one league match all season.

A slow start to the match looked as though it was going to cost the young Vics, with Grappenhall storming into a 2-0 lead.

However, they refused to knuckle under and goals from Harry Korkou and Guy Simper pulled them level and igniting hopes of a remarkable comeback.

They had to settle for penalties, but the team remained composed as Louie Roberts, Brandon Nelson and Leo Gutteridge all confidently converted their spot-kicks.

Goalkeeper Louis Baldwin then pulled off a magnificent save to put them on the brink of victory, with Ollie Leonard then stepping up to score the winning penalty.

"As managers, witnessing our team's incredible journey to become Mid Cheshire League and Cup double winners has been nothing short of exhilarating,” co-managers Nick Simpson and Lee Shuttleworth said.

“The resilience, determination and camaraderie displayed by our players throughout the season has been truly inspiring.

“This achievement is a testament to their hard work and dedication and we couldn't be prouder of each and every one of them."
