TRYSALL Tigers' young guns pulled off the seemingly impossible dream as they secured their first Beacon Sunday league title on a memorable day for long serving team boss Steve Hussey.

With long season pacesetters Bloxwich Rangers under-21s having completed their Paycare Development Division fixtures, the Tigers knew they had to bag double figures in their final game against Coven United to take the crown on goal difference, writes Dave McLean.

And the Tigers did just that, smashing luckless Coven 15-0, so leaving arch rivals Bloxwich heartbroken in what has been an unforgettable first ever Paycare campaign.

Trysull were well and truly up for this final match and were well aware that at least a ten goal margin of victory would enable them to lift the silverware. By the break they were very much in the driving seat, leading 7-0.

Although Coven produced one or two scares, and defeated Trysull in the earlier league meeeting, there was no stopping Hussey's charges and they kept up the momentum in the second period to run out emphatic winners - and the celebrations got underway.

Leading the goal spree in this all important last match decider was five-goal Steve Rickhuss, who received excellent support from Dan Lloyd-Hickman three, captain Paul Howells, Jack Pitchford (both two), Jake Pope, Tom Hudson and Aaron Bolton.

The battle of the Paycare top two will continue on Thursday, April 25 when they face each other in the final of The Sports Shop Kingswinford Clinton Cup final, at AFC Wulfrunians ground, Castlecroft (kick off 7.45pm).

And, although they had the title snatched from them this week, Bloxwich players and staff were celebrating after also reaching the final of the league's flagship NDT Midlands Lester Charity Cup.

They took on fellow Paycare rivals FC Premier under-21s in the last four and secured their cup final ticket with a crucial 2-1 success, coming from behind to take the tie with match winning goals from Ethan Mannion and Connor Wall after Ajani Allen had given Premier an interval advantage.

In the final, also at AFC Wulfrunians ground on Sunday, April 28 (3pm), they will meet top tier outfit Claregate Park Rangers who grabbed their first ever success over three time winners Dynamo Dudley.

"I'm really proud of the players. They battled hard and now we can look forward to another Beacon league final (they lost out to Dynamo in last season's Chell Cup final)," said team boss Gary Cooper.

Claregate had to be at their best and top marksman Kyle Matthews twice gave them a lead in a thrilling first half, only to be pegged back by Dynamo replies from Shawn Devonport and Joe Colley as the cup holders looked to keep alive their opportunity of a fourth Lester Charity triumph.

They second period proved a tight affair before Claregate hit Dynamo late with a match winning brace in the final five minutes as Dan Pritchard, with a well struck 25-yard drive, and hat trick hero Matthews clinched a hard fought 4-2 win for the table toppers.

In the Redbox league there was a goal feast involving Sedgley & Gornal United and Fiveways Inn, the verdict eventually going to the former by the odd goal in nine.

In and end to end encounter, Jack Kelly and Tom Timmins notched doubles for United, with Ashley Walker making it a nap hand. Keeping things close were the Fiveways responses from John Guest, Nathan Maxwell, Nathan Phillips and Jamie Sankey.
