Groves 7 – Got to grips with a pacey Consett attack

Lough 7 – Finally won the battle of minds with Consett’s lively front four

Spence 7 – A typically cool and calm display from the ever consistent midfielder

Storey 8 – A captain’s display from Storey

Carson 8 – Did the sweeper’s job well and picked up behind his captain

Potter 8 – Ever the threat and a dangerous outlet on both wings

McKeown 8 – Calm and composed from the experienced midfielder

Armstrong 7 – Will wonder how he didn’t scored – but battled away and gave his side an outlet

Richardson 9 – Man of the match after a fine display

Purewal 7 – Worked hard at both ends of the pitch and got the goal he would have hoped for against his brother

Subs: Martin 8 – Probably only had four or five touches but only one really mattered


Hayes 7 – Couldn’t do anything about the goals but looked solid otherwise

Metz 8 – A menace from full-back

Holden 7 – Much like Metz, did well when he got forward but needed more end product

Slocombe 6 - Battled away well but couldn’t make the impact he would have liked

Purewal 7 - Won’t have enjoyed seeing his brother score, but didn’t shy away from the battle

Wilkinson 6 - Held up well in the physical contest with Armstrong but looked trouble by pace at times

Orrell 6 – Would have been a key player for his side before his unfortunate injury

Smith 7 – Always an influence in the game but will wonder how he has walked away with a Wembley goal

Pearson 6 – Finally had his Wembley moment, but his influence diminished in the second half

Cornish 6 – Couldn’t really get into the game

Alshabeeb 8 – His side’s most effective player


Carr 6 – Couldn’t really influence events

Lawson N/A

Allen 6 – Performed reasonably well in the back three
