SEE CUP FINAL PHOTOS

South were up against it after keeper Akiva Lieberman was forced off with an ankle injury after 30 minutes and their chances deteriorated even further when Harvey Kaye was sent off 10 minutes into the second half.

But there was a silver-lining for South Manchester who retained their Manchester Accountants League title.

Brady joint-manager Josh Rosenfeld told JC Sport: "The win tops off how far we have come this season. We deserved to win the cup as we have been on a run since before Xmas where at times we are unplayable.

"The hard work, effort every individual in the squad has put in over recent months, the boys deserved their special day and have the right to call themselves all champions.

Co-manager Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "Yes things went our way with their keeper going off injured and the sending off, but we came up here with a game-plan and the boys executed it to perfection."
