Marsden FC boss Luke Haigh spoke of his pride after his side completed a league and cup double with a 2-1 victory over Morley Town in the Hancock Cup.

First half goals from Michael Tunnacliffe and Mikey O’Brien were enough to see the Cuckoos lift the trophy at the Citadel in Pudsey.

Marsden had already sealed back-to-back league titles after winning the Yorkshire Amateur League Championship and Haigh is looking to another promotion.

Haigh said: “We’ve now won three trophies in two seasons while at the same time breaking two records for goals scored in Division 2 and now the Championship.

“I couldn’t be any more proud of the lads who have shown incredible character and determination especially towards the end of the season when we played nine games in less than four weeks. All the games were against the top five teams and we won them all!

“We have earned our stripes climbing through the YAL leagues the correct way and earning back-to-back league titles and a cup win.

“We are now hopeful that Marsden will again be playing Step 7 football in the Supreme division from next season.

“We have two games left to play in the season now so we really must do our best to finish as strong as we can.

“As for me I’ll be sitting down with the committee before we break up to discuss next season and what further improvements need to be done at the club in order to keep pushing forwards.”

Marsden will be presented with the league trophy after the game against Bradford United Reserves at Fall Lane on Saturday May 11 (2.00).
