North East & Yorkshire CP National Cerebral Palsy Cup Winners 2019-2020

The 2019-2020 National CP Cup took place on Saturday 23rd November at the University of Northampton.

Five of the National CP League teams entered into the competition all competing for a place at the 2020 FA Disability Cup. The teams did not disappoint in terms of entertainment, starting with the first match between Brighton and Derby which ended 0-0 due the great heroic display of both goals keepers preventing either opposition from scoring.

There were some real close results in other matches through out the competition, including Derby grabbing a 2-1 result over CP North West. Cambridge Community Trust, new to the league this season took part in their first Cup competition. They had recruited a couple of new players through the season so far and were keen to be involved in the event and enjoyed the experience.

In the final round of matches, it was a repeat of the FA Disability final from June, between CP North West and North East & Yorkshire. CP North West needed a win to retain the CP Cup, however it was North East & Yorkshires day, as they managed to maintain a 100% win record throughout the day to claim the 2019-20 National CP Cup and confirm their place at the FA Disability Cup in 2020.
