Have your say

RYHOPE Foresters suffered heartbreak, going down on penalties to Heaton Stannington in the Alan Spedding Cup final.

The game, at Herrington Burn YMCA, was too close to call and Foresters were twice in the lead only to be pulled back to 2-2 in normal time.

With no further goals, the final went to penalties, with Heaton winning 4-2 thanks to two excellent saves by their keeper.

The man of the match award went to Ryhope’s Keith Churchill, magnificent through on the big occasion.
