Claverdon celebrate after their dramatic 2-1 Birmingham FA Saturday Amateur Cup victory over Tamworth Under-21s last weekend.

STEVEN Nollett scored an added-time winner as Claverdon clinched Birmingham FA Saturday Amateur Cup glory with a thrilling 2-1 victory over Tamworth Under-21s.

The final was a tense affair with Tamworth enjoying the majority of possession, particularly in the first half.

This was something Claverdon had not experienced this season, but they produced a superb defensive display and Dave Dellenty was outstanding in goal.

Claverdon changed their tactics at half-time, with their aim to simply remain in the game. However, they went a goal down early in the second half, before showing great character to hit back.

Claverdon’s two goals came from set pieces, with the first arriving when Mitch Colby’s effort struck the post with Danny Chinn pouncing on the rebound to score.

The winner arrived in time added on as Henry Eddy found Nollett in the area to head into the top corner and send Claverdon into ecstasy. “This is a great achievement for our Club and a fantastic way to celebrate our tenth year since reforming in 2007,” said Claverdon manager, Charlie Waterworth.

“Without the dedication and effort of Barry Cooke from the Stratford Alliance, Claverdon would not be celebrating this win. Well done to everyone involved.”
