008 (2) Trophy Facts #20 – Cliffe FC, sponsored by LRB Trophies, are crowned York FA Junior Cup Trophy winners with a 2-0 win against Fulford.   Cliffe FC 2 - 0 Fulford | Cliffe FC - York FA Cup Winners 2013/14   Malcolm Bryce writes: A less than smooth FA Cup campaign that started way back in September with a 9-0 win against Crayke. The first half of the final was an even affair, Fulford having the ball in Cliffe’s half for a good portion of the 45 whilst Cliffe drew saves from Fulford’s ‘keeper at the other end, Tom Hogg and Chris Jackson both having close range shots saved. Whilst the score remained goal-less at the break, Cliffe knew they had more to give in the second half. Cliffe FC began bright in the second-half and looked most likely to score but they had to remain patient, numerous shots blocked, a breakaway saw Ian Beckram flash a shot over the bar and Ryan Sedman see a cross that floated over the ‘keeper and crashed off the bar. A quick thinking set-piece with around quarter hour remaining saw Andy Addison slide a ball across the box that found it’s way onto the right foot of Adam Durnin that managed to squeeze his shot through a crowd of players and into the net, a cup final winning goal a perfect way to celebrate his birthday, 1-0 to Cliffe. Fulford had to chase the game in an attempt to grab and equaliser in an attempt to send the tie to penalties and committed more men forward but Cliffe sealed the win in the final minutes, Reuben Pearse – who celebrates his birthday the day after Durnin – played the through ball for Si Houlder to slot under the ‘keeper and into the net to put the tie beyond Fulford and make the final score 2-0.
