Wigan Walkers took part in another one day Cup Competition at Prescot and after a shaky start came away with the rather handsome trophy.

A very enjoyable day ensued in Prescot, thanks to all the players plus John and Tommy for the support and managing the team.

There were 8 teams involved, so 2 groups of 4, we got off to a slow start losing 2-0 , before a 4-3 win and a 1-1 draw edged us into the Semi Final on goal difference.

The semi final match was a straightforward 2-0 victory and got us a rematch with Prescot Hub in the final.

We were 1-0 down with a minute left, up stepped Pete Hampson to level the scores with a cool finish.

It was then a penalty shootout which was level at 4-4 before Dennis made a vital save leaving Hampson with nerves of steel to score the winning pen ! (our other scorers in the tournament were Woosey 4 Anderton 2 Eden 1)

Big respect to both Billy Burton and John Eden for playing through the pain barrier along with keeper Dennis Cudahy who made some great saves throughout.

(Thanks to team captain Steve Anderton for the match report.)
