Bradley Parker’s second goal, deep into the second period of extra time, sparked mass celebrations amongst the Priestley teammates.
Captain and former Penketh High pupil Liam Turner, who studies a BTEC Sport Performance and Excellence at Priestley, said the team had been spurred on by a determination to win the cup after narrowly missing out on the North West Colleges League play-offs this season.
“As a team it has taken time to gel, but we have improved considerably,” said the 18-year-old.
In the quarterfinals Priestley defeated South Cheshire College and in the semifinals Sir John Deane’s were their victims.
Vice-captain Andy Williams, who also went to Penketh, said: “The college’s Football Development Programme has really helped me as a player and the team worked hard to deliver a performance that our coach Rich Donnelly said we were capable of producing.”
