The game’s first half was evenly matched with Brinklow playing a passing game whilst Ambleside relied upon a route one strategy playing the ball straight to their big front man.

Brinklow had the ball in the net after 29 minutes but Alex Bragger’s header was ruled out for offside.

The Ambleside keeper denied Brinklow on 43 minutes when what seemed to be a goal-bound Luke Kennedy free kick was brilliantly parried away.

The second half saw Brinklow with the lion’s share of possession but being unable to break a resolute Ambleside defence.

As extra time ebbed away a pass from Jack Hilton found John Coleman on the right of the goal area.

The big striker sent a looping shot over the advancing keeper into the corner of the net to secure the trophy for Brinklow.
