Winn’s treble seals cup joy for Humbledon

Have your say

HUMBLEDON and Plains Farm clinched more silverware by landing the Sunderland Sunday League Cup with a 4-2 final win over Hylton Castle TWR.

Kev Gordon put TWR ahead, but Mark Davison soon fired Plainsy level.

TWR were not fazed by the setback, though, and Adam Drysdale finished a great move featuring Dorwood and Cresswell to restore the lead.

Farm striker Chris Winn proved his quality with a well-taken leveller, then he added a third after keeper Chris Smith fumbled.

Both teams had chances, but Humbledon sealed victory when Winn completed his hat-trick.
