Durham Sunday League: Coates cracker seals cup final place

Have your say

SACRISTON Cricket Club clinched their place in the Heart Foundation Trophy final, edging past Peterlee Sunday League outfit Shotton Comrades 1-0 after extra time.

Comrades goalkeeper Phil Murphy produced a number of truly magnificent saves to keep his side level until Craig Coates hit a wonderful winner.

The goal came on 100 minutes when Gary Draper played a fantastic ball through to Coates, who instantly controlled the ball before taking it nearer the goal and, as the Shotton keeper advanced, cleverly chipped the ball over him with the inside of his left foot and into the net.

Rob Draper was man of the match.
