Reds snare Lancashire Cup

The game could have been dead and buried 20 minutes from time, but Campbell smashed his close-range effort against the bar with the goal gaping, and he would rue that miss moments later as Jordi Brouwer headed Gary Ablett's side level.

Just as the match seemed set for a dramatic penalty shoot-out, Cleverley burst down the left wing and picked out substitute Drinkwater, who calmly guided a finish home to swing a see-saw encounter in United's favour and take the trophy.
 
United: Zieler; Eckersley, Cathcart, Chester, Simpson; Gray, Possebon (Drinkwater 46), Gibson, Cleverley, Hewson (C Evans 88); Campbell.
Subs not used: Derbyshire, Amos, Eikrem.
