Liverpool Old Boys Connerty Cup 2019/20 Winners: Huyton Stanley

Huyton Stanley romped to Connerty Cup glory with a resounding win in the final

Huyton Stanley were victors of the rescheduled Connerty Cup after the coronavirus scuppered any possibility of the cup being completed that season.

Stanley narrowly beat Kingsford in the semi-final as the Huyton club came out on top in a nine-goal thriller.

MSB Woolton stood in the way of them having their name etched in the Connerty Cup history books.

They said: “We didn’t think we’d actually get the chance to play the final so it was great that the league managed to get it to go ahead.

“We needed to win this cup, we managed to win the league as well but it was tarnished that we didn’t get to complete a full season so the league decided not to actually give out the league trophy. Overall not bad for our first season.

MSB took an early lead stunning Stanley.

But despite falling a goal behind, their pressure paid off in the end.

“It was a boss day and the win was great but we were 1-0 down from MSBs only shot and couldn’t seem to get the ball into the net. We must of had 20-30 shots.

“But eventually about 30 seconds before half time we got a penalty and got back into the game. After that goal we ran away with it and to be honest it could have been more.

“Best day the club has had so far. We’ve got a boss group of lads on and off the pitch and this is 100% the start of more to come.

“We’ve got a couple of new signings that will improve us this season as we go into the top LOBL division and we will be looking to challenge. Hopefully plenty more nights in the Stanley then back to Macca’s with the cup.”
