FOR the first time in 22 years Solihull Under 13s have won the Walsall FC Cup.
On Saturday the Solihull District team beat Stafford 1-0 at the Bescott Stadium in the final of the Walsall FC Cup.
The opposition were excellent with a number of outstanding individuals, and they dominated much of the first half with Solihull relying on the counterattack.
However, due to a combination of strong defending and poor finishing, the game remained goaless at half-time.
The second half was a much more even contest with Solihull creating a number of good opportunities.
Finally the deadlock was broken 10 minutes from time when D Kerman (John Henry Newman) scored the winning goal.
M Mannion (St Peters) was man of the match with a superb defensive display.
The team are now looking to complete the double by winning the West Midlands U13 League. A point against their nearest challenges, Wolverhampton Schools, in their last league fixture, will ensure the league title.
