Cup win for Mushet and Coalway

By Mark Elson in Football

Geo Sandoe Cup 

Mushet and Coalway United 2-0 Milkwall 


TWO second half goals denied North Gloucestershire League third division champions Milkwall a league and cup double.

Mushet and Coalway, who finished fourth in the first division, claimed the Geo Sandoe Cup in the final which was played at Broadwell’s ground on Easter Monday.

The sides went into the break even at 0-0 but goals from Jack Daw and Greg Rutsch gave Mushet and Coalway the victory.

Milkwall had a goal disallowed for offside and also forced some good saves from the Mushet keeper.

The win followed disappointment for the club in the final of the J O Roberts Cup where the reserves were beaten 3-1 by Puma.

The league’s third cup, the F J Pope, will be contested by Westbury United and Ellwood Reserves on May 1.
