More success for the Blades

19 June 2017

The Blades won another title over the weekend.

Our Walking Football Club, which comes under the Sheffield United Community Foundation banner, overcame a lacklustre start of the EFL Trust Cup Finals to take top honours at Aston Villa's training ground.

United lost 1-0 to 2015 winner Plymouth Argyle in the opening game, before playing out a goalless draw in the second match of the group stage.

But led by skipper Peter Stacey, the Blades went on to record three consecutive victories in the remaining matches to set up a semi-final clash with Luton Town.

United overcame the Hatters to set up a final against Birmingham WFC, endorsing Kidderminster Harriers in the final, after they won a penalty shootout 15-14 against 2016 winners Blackpool in their last four clash.

The final itself was a tight affair, but after the Harriers rightly had a goal disallowed, it was Stacey who produced the decisive moment to score the winner and in the process add to his tally to also collect the EFL Golden Boot award.

For those interested in the future, sessions for the WFC are will be held on Wednesday evening at Crookes, from 7-8pm, costing £2 and starting on 1st July.
