Ryton Park win shield

In only the second year in their palatial new premises, Ryton Park’s football team became Champion of Champions.

The Division Two winners captured the the 90-year-old Worksop Guardian Shield in a close encounter with St Anne’s from Division Three.

Oozing with confidence after their demolition of holders Carr Hill from Division One, St Anne’s had an early awakening as they found themselves outplayed by much smaller opposition.

Organised by managers Jeremy Cordall and Mary Paton, Ryton Park swept into a two goal lead with goals from Malachi Bradford and McKenzie Day.

The second half saw St Anne’s level through Riley Garfitt and Ethan Hibbert.

But Ryton Park struck the final blow with a winner from McKenzie Day.

Park have the opportunity to make it a first time double for Bassetlaw when their girls play in the final of the Girls Champion of Champions tournament against the winners of Prospect Hill and Leverton.

Ranskill won the first of their two finals against Everton when Kyle Simpson and Elliott Crowe were on target in the Middle Divisions Cup final.
