Edd Major strike seals Cheltenham League Senior Charity Cup triumph for Winchcombe Town over Montpellier

A finish of real quality from Edd Major ensured that Winchcombe Town lifted the Cheltenham League Senior Charity Cup with a 2-1 win over Montpellier at Cheltenham Town's Completely-Suzuki Stadium.

The Premier Division leaders had to recover from a goal down to complete the first part of a likely double, with Sonnie Burrows putting Division One table-toppers Montpellier ahead with a well-placed header after Ryan Attwood's cross from the right in the 20th minute.

Burrows' 17th goal in league and Charity Cup separated the sides at half-time, but Winchcombe's prolific number nine Monty New levelled 10 minutes into the second half, rounding goalkeeper Jake Price and finishing calmly.

And four minutes later, the turnaround was complete.

Harry Staddon chipped forward a ball from inside the centre circle and Major fired into the bottom left corner after an exquisite first touch.

New and Dan Moore both had chances to make it 3-1, with New smashing over the bar from a good position and Moore's effort drifting just wide after beating the on-rushing Price.

James Lee made an impact from the bench for Montpellier, but his header was gathered safely by Spencer Broughton in the 86th minute as Winchcombe stood firm.

The final was watched by a healthy Whaddon Road crowd, with all proceeds from the final donated to the Cheltenham League's chosen charities: Sue Ryder, Cheltenham & District Association for the Disabled and The Butterfly Garden.

Winchcombe have one league match left, against second placed Kempsey on Saturday, with a draw enough to seal the title and complete a league and cup double.
