Wingate on a roll

March 24, 2011

Wingate and Finchley have won the Under 18 County Cup.

Keeper Charlie Gould, David Smouha, Liron Mannie and Seb Garber were in the team who beat Forest United Youth 4-3 at North Greenford United Stadium.

Garber opened the scoring following a great ball in by Smouha. The same player also squeezed home number three before United pulled it back to 3-2 at the interval.

A stunning solo effort in the second half from Mannie sealed the tie.

Wingate Under 18 manager Keith Garber said: "Considering this team has been together for barely one season, the achievement was outstanding. I am so proud of all the players. They worked tirelessly, created many chances throughout the game, and when necessary defended superbly against a very strong and direct team.

"Self belief helped them through this tournament and they all deserve the accolades that come with winning such a prestigious competition."
