Berwick Charities Cup final: The Londis Ladykillers v Tweeddmouth Juniors

The 2015 Charities Cup final drew a large crowd to the Stanks pitch in the shadow of Berwick’s town walls on Saturday evening.

Spectators were treated to an end-to-end game between Londis Ladykillers and Tweedmouth Juniors.

The Ladykillers came out on top, 4-3, thought they were pushed all the way by a spirited Juniors side, who got themselves a goal with a controversial penalty deep into injury time.

This year’s competition has raised over £4,000 for local charity, Cancer Cars, which provides free transport for those with cancer-related illnesses.

After the game, organisers said: “A big thank you to everyone who made a donation last night and on the way through this years competition. Without you the Charities Cup would not go ahead, so thank you.”

The committee would also like to thank all the players this year and the officials for giving up their time to referee the matches.

Meanwhile, the latter stages of the Crammond Cup have been determined.

In the final, to be played on Saturday, August 3, North Sunderland or Lowick will face off against Tweedmouth Rangers or Alnmouth, depending on the results of the semi-finals this week.
