Victory At 2015 Lancashire FA Amatuer Shield Final For Coppull United

In an all West Lancashire final at The County Ground in Leyland last night, Coppull United FC were crowned champions of the Lancashire FA Amateur Shield competition.

In an entertaining and hotly contested match Coppull United FC got off to a flying start, with Coppull United’s Ryan Salmons impressive goal in the 7th minute. Despite battling and valiantly trying CMB Sports Club failed to score on the evening, with Coppull United's Mitch Leece and Nathan Fairhurst scoring in the 11th and 38th minute retrospectively.

Coppull United FC were the deserved winners at full time with a score of 3 - nil. CMB Sports Club took a moment to congratulate Coppull United before Thornton Sports Managing Director David Saxby presented them with their medals. David Saxby then presented the new champions with both their medals and the Thornton Sports Amateur Shield after what had been a great game under perfect football conditions.

It was a pleasure once again, for Thornton Sports to sponsor this local event for the fourth consecutive year, having sponsored the Lancashire FA Senior Cup previously. Over 270 watched the match at The County Ground in Leyland, where Thornton Sports recently installed new training and community facilities in 2011. Works there involved resurfacing of a sand-filled synthetic grass pitch with Thornton Sports’ in-house UK manufactured SoccerTurf™ 40M 3G surface and also construction of an adjacent new 5-a-side sports pitch with a similar SoccerTurf™ surface.
