AFC Mangotsfield came out on top of this hard fought GFA Junior Cup Final against local rivals Yate Ath

at Oaklands Park, Almondsbury winning 2-0.

On a blustery evening, not conducive to playing good football AFC Mangos found themselves defending for much of the game but a great defensive play led by goalkeeper Jordan Ridd kept Yate at bay, in fact it was much of a stalemate until mid way through the second half when substitute Liam Bamford hit a terrific ball across the goal for top scorer Dan Coles to smash in from eight yards.

Mangotsfield dug in deep as Yate piled on the pressure and ten minutes from time scored a second, Sam Futcher chased a great through ball by Ben Russell and a mix up between defender and keeper was able to slot the ball home and a complete a well deserved win for The Mighty Mangos.
