Match Preview: Under 18 County Cup Final

Workington Juniors U17 Whites v Whitehaven AFC Juniors U18

This evening, the Under 18 County Cup Final kicks off the traditional ‘Youth Weekender’ with 3 days of Finals coming up!

The Under 18 trophy heads to Frenchfield Park, the home of Penrith AFC in the first of five Finals over the weekend.

Following the three senior Finals over the past couple of weeks, attention now turns to the Youth Finals once again. To support Under 16s with exam preparation, the Under 16 County Cup Finals took place in March rather than be included in the Youth Weekender with Carlisle Lionesses (Girls) and Workington Juniors Blacks (Mixed) lifting the respective Trophies!

Workington AFC won the Fred Conway Cumberland Cup, Penrith AFC Ladies lifted the Women’s County Cup and Parkside FC won the Sunday Cup in their first season!

Workington Juniors U17 Whites team have had a season to be proud of, playing in the double age band Under 18 competitions.

The team were runners up in the West Cumbria Youth League, U18 Division, winning 12 of their 16 league fixtures and reached the semi-final of the League Cup.

The Whitehaven AFC Under 18 team were originally formed in 2012 as a new Under 6 team, with 7 players who took part in their 1st ever training session still involved.

The team finished third in the West Cumbria Youth League Under 18 Division.

In two Previous Meetings this season, the teams played out a 1-1 draw while Whitehaven AFC U18’s won the other 3-0 .

The Final is likely to be a close affair with both teams looking to add some silverware to top off a good season!
