Manea United triumphant in North Cambs Cup

MANEA United won the North Cambs Cup final at the GER on Wednesday night, beating local rivals Doddington United 2-1.

George Burton gave Manea the lead after 25 minutes with a tap-in and then player-manager James Waters buried a 25-yard shot into the bottom corner five minutes later to make it 2-0.

Doddington were the better side after the break and Lee Barnett gave them hope with a goal after 70 minutes but they just could not find an equaliser.

Waters, who only took charge at the start of the season, said: “We were really up for it and although they were the better side in the second half, I was confident we would hold on.”
