Ulverston march to triumph over Barrow Wanderers

ULVERSTON proved just too strong for Barrow Wanderers as they claimed the under-14s crown.

Both teams started nervously, but Wanderers created chances through Cameron Clarke and Jack Kavanagh charging down defensive clearances, while a Conor Gooding through ball to Brad Jones sent him away, before the Ulverston defence snuffed out the danger.

Rangers started to press and forced a fine save from Wanderers keeper Dimitri Canham, while Jordan Ashton and Tyler Dewar battled hard in the middle for the Barrow side.

George Akred marshalled the Wanderers defence, ably supported by Robbie Simpson, Euan James and Olly Gaitskell, but Ulverston broke the deadlock with a 20-yard strike from Cameron Trew.

This inspired Barrow Wanderers to come back at Ulverston, with several attempts on goal that came to nothing as the half ended 1-0 to Rangers.

The second half started as the first, with some strong tackling from the Wanderers team but with no return up front.

In the 47th minute a through ball by Josh Cronin found Huw Barton, who hammered the ball into the bottom corner of the goal to put Ulverston 2-0 up and in control.

Jed Wilkinson just entered the fray for Wanderers and a great through ball from Jones gave him a shooting opportunity, but the Rangers keeper saved well.

A lot of pressure from Ulverston found them ending the game with another two goals, one from a lovely ball from Ollie Hambley to set up Tom Pearson and the second an Owen Dryden strike from outside the box.

On the day, Ulverston’s passing made the difference as Wanderers’ hard tackling and endeavour could not get their front men going and the warm weather took its toll on their efforts.
