Creative Support (Man)




Atlantic Star 2nd (Man)


The 2010 Manchester Fives Plate Final would fittingly be contested by two local teams – Creative Support and Atlantic Star 2nd . Atlantic Star were making their first appearance in a final after 3 successive semi-final defeats (2008 Prague Trophy Plate, 2009 Krakow Trophy Cup, 2009 Prague Trophy Cup). They now had the opportunity to collect their first silverware.

Both teams would go into the final high on confidence with impressive semi-final victories. When the game got underway it was Creative Support who drew first blood when Scott Miles smashed in a scorching volley direct from the corner. The stunning strike received rapturous applause from the watching galleries. The lead was not to last too long though as Atlantic Star, recovering from a nervy start, were back level through Chris Brereton. Both teams were still very much in this as the game ebbed and flowed. It all changed when Aaron Conneran made it 2-1 to Atlantic Star and that signalled the momentum shift. Creative Support now had to take chances to get back on level terms but this would inevitably leave them vulnerable on the break.

Mark Brereton then showed some personal brilliance taking two players out of the game, skipping past the last defender before smashing home the finish for 3-1. A two goal cushion became a three goal cushion when Phil Heoward made it 4-1. The final score was harsh on Creative Support but no-one could argue Atlantic Star deserved the win on the balance of play. It was Atlantic Star's first victory in competition in 4 attempts and could be the first of many as they look for more success in the 2010 Krakow Cup.

Comiserations to Creative Support – we look forward to seeing you in action again soon.

Ladies and gentleman, we present you with the 2010 Manchester Fives Plate Winners…

….. Atlantic Star.
