Blacon Thistle are the 2015 winners of the CDFL Roodee Web Design Tom Gerraghty Memorial Trophy. The final was held on Saturday 16th May and it was a thrilling game that saw them overcome Premier Division opposition in the shape of Helsby Reserves.
A flooded pitch for the planned final at the Swansway Stadium, close to our base in Chester saw the match postponed and moved to Vauxhall Motors FC.
The clubs were greeted to a sunny afternoon at Rivacre Park and the football did not disappoint.
Blacon scored first with Tom George slotting past the Helsby keeper followed by a Warren Roberts penalty. Helsby hit back after the break before Lee King-McGee restored Blacon Thistle’s two-goal advantage. Helsby immediately pressed Blacon once again scoring a further goal to make it 3-2, applying more pressure. As Helsby pushed for the equalizer, Luke Jones scored another for Blacon to give them a famous 4-2 victory.
We have long enjoyed sponsoring this trophy in the fantastic Chester And District Footbal League and look forward to continuing our support for grass roots football in Chester in the coming season.
