Sutton United 0 Melbourn 3

MELBOURN won the Creake Shield for the second time on Tuesday evening at Cambridge City's Milton Road, having previously won the event in 1978.

Mick Walker's (pictured with captain Jason Gray) side settled quickly and controlled the game for large periods but were unable to apply a killer touch in the first half.

Early in the second half Andrew Morris rounded the keeper to slot home from an angle to open the scoring and after this point Melbourn's dominance only grew.

They were awarded a penalty after a defender had handled in the box and Kris Watters stepped up to score and not long after the ball fell to Watters in the box, whose shot on the turn left the Sutton goalie with no chance.

It was a thoroughly deserved victory for the Melbourn team and their supporters.
