Recap

Reds’ aquatic skills came in useful as they splashed their way into the Cumberland Cup Final, overcoming the atrocious conditions and a robust Maryport team at a rain­ swept Borough Park.

Yet, what looks a comfortable, straightforward passage was anything but with the holders all at sea in an opening half hour Athletic edged. The County League outfit could not sustain their bright opening, though, and once Workington scored there was little doubt about the outcome.

Ciaran Laverty was inches away from giving Maryport an early lead and Darren Rule squandered two good chances as they applied early pressure to yet another untried Workington back four.

And luck was probably against them when Danny Grainger’s makeshift side took a thirty-eighth minute lead, against the run of play. Ex. Workington player, Cam Harker, saw a shot canon back off the woodwork at one end before a swift counter­ attack culminated in Dav Symington sending the ball past Craig Rule at the other ten seconds later.

That goal visibly knocked the stuffing out of a gallant Maryport team and their woes increased two minutes later when Lewis Reilly scored a fine second after a good passing move.

Symington increased the advantage with a third goal after sixty-four minutes when his well struck shot took a slight deflection and looped over Craig Rule.

Laverty came closest to grabbing a consolation for Karl Skillen’s team but a sweet shot from distance was gathered comfortably by Danny Eccles.

Borough Park will host this year’s final when old foes Workington and Carlisle United
meet later this month.
