Match-winner Exley eyes more glory

MATCH-WINNER Sean Exley was a happy man after Trafalgar’s 3-2 Sunday League Senior Cup success against fierce rivals Newlands.

Traf twice came from behind to level the game up in extra-time, before Exley picked out the bottom corner with a glorious strike from out wide on the left.

The striker, who turns out for Scarborough Town on a Saturday, feels that the pub side may still need to clear a bit more space in the trophy cabinet before the season is out.

“The goal was the only thing I did, but as soon as I hit it I knew it was going in,” he joked.

“It was a quality game of football, we knew we would have to match them because they are a good battling team.

“We have always struggled against them in the past, so we are all delighted with the victory.”

Traf now have a couple of games remaining, the Kenward Cup final against Staxton next Sunday and then a league battle against Newlands on May 17.

They must play a waiting game though, as Pier are currently odds on favourites for the title with their game against Hunmanby Hornets tomorrow evening the only one left to play.

He added: “We have another final now against Staxton, but just to pick up one trophy is a great team effort.

“West Pier are running away with the league at the moment, but you never know, if Hunmanby can do us a favour when they play them on Tuesday then we might still get the treble.”
