Dunkirk FC 2
Greasley MW U15 4
CHAMPIONS Greasley completed a remarkable season by overcoming Dunkirk and making it 20 wins out of 20 for the campaign.
The last game of the season is normally a lacklustre affair with neither side totally interested in the outcome.
Greasley, however, knew that if they could win this game they would gain the prestigious acclaim of winning every league game in a season, while Dunkirk knew if they could snatch a win they would be the only team to beat the champions.
Greasley gave opportunities to several fringe players who had for most of the season stood on the sidelines, but none failed to impress as Sam Brown, Aaron Coyle, Ste Hatherley, Sam Sherwin, Jack Smith and especially Craig Mutch all played their part in yet another impressive performance.
It was end-to-end stuff from the first minute with both teams going for it.
Sam Meakin hit a post from 20 yards out before the same player crossed for the unmarked Brett Soiza to slide in and find the net.
Both Motson and Scott fired over for the home side before Meakin saw his near post corner find its way directly into the goal with the keeper flapping at thin air.
Sherwin missed a sitter when he knocked his effort wide from close range and Soiza brought a smart save from the home keeper tipping round a post.
Dunkirk pressed for a breakthrough early in the second-half and scored when Motson rose to head home from right wing free-kick.
James Fogg twice saved well from close range but could do nothing to prevent the equaliser when Richards ran in unmarked to score.
Greasley then stepped up a gear with Joe Coxon and Robbie Manners working hard in the centre of the park.
Manners was bombing forward at every opportunity and he began to cause mayhem in the home defence.
Josh Baker and Gian Ciaurro came on late on and both scored to secure the points.
Baker was sent racing clear from a Meakin through ball and the big forward smashed his shot into the far corner with aplomb.
Ciaurro missed an easier chance just before grabbing his goal in the final minutes as he found himself between the posts to slot home off a deflection.
Craig Mutch was named man of the match.
