Under 10s’ win ‘like Plymouth Argyle winning the FA Cup’

SANDYMERE JFC defied the odds to secure an unlikely cup victory.

They beat Barnstaple AFC to lift the under 10s league cup after entering the match as massive underdogs.

But they managed to hold on to a narrow 1-0 lead until the final whistle to bring the trophy back to Sandymere.

“To coin a phrase from ‘the special one’ we had to park the bus in the second half but we battled hard to keep our opponents at bay,” said coach David Jones.

“This win for Sandymere is like Plymouth Argyle winning the FA Cup!”
