Sunderland Sunday League: Pope almighty in cup stunner

Have your say

HYLTON Castle TWR sent shock waves around Sunderland last Sunday afternoon after beating mighty Humbledon & Plains Farm 5-2 in their own back yard.

TWR were 3-0 up, in the Joe Holborn Memorial Cup tie, courtesy of Farran Pope, Kev Gordon and Adam Drysdale before Plainsy hit back when Mark Davison scored twice to make a game of it.

But TWR were on top and Plainsy could not handle them. Further goals from Pope and Dave Keithley secured a memorable win.
