Newport 1, Cowes Sports 0
A COOL finish a minute
from time was enough to seal victory for Newport in the Isle of Wight
Senior (Gold) Cup final against in-form Cowes Sports last night
A 400-strong crowd at East Cowes Vics
watched an evenly matched and gritty encounter, with very few
chances created by both sides.
Newport left it late, with striker
Charlie SMEETON latching on to an excellent through ball and calmly
rounding the keeper to slot into an empty net on 89 minutes.
Delighted Port skipper Darren Powell
said: "It was never going to be pretty — it was a real battle.
We left it late and came through in the end."
