Newark Flowserve win East Midlands Counties League league cup after penalty shoot-out against Clifton All Whites
Newark Flowserve are league cup champions for the second consecutive season.
Flowserve, who celebrated the Notts Senior League league and cup double last season, enjoyed promotion via a second place finish last weekend, and added the East Midlands Counties League cup after a nervy 4-1 penalty shoot-out win over Clifton All Whites.
After a 0-0 draw over 120 minutes, the pressure was on, and former Notts County shot-stopper Joe Searson looked confident in the Flowserve goal, but in the end, a heroic performance wasn’t needed as Clifton’s Aaron Large and Martin Ball fired over the bar, while Will Rawson, Jammy Lloyd, Danny Meadows and Sam Agar all ruthlessly put their spot-kicks away.
