Shaw Lane AFC have produced a fantastic end to an unforgettable season.
Players were determined to ‘Win the League for Dan’ – and not only did they do that, they went on to carry off The Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup on Wednesday, beating Frickley AFC 1-0 in the final at Bramall Lane.
The Club suffered an unimaginable loss in September when Dan Wilkinson collapsed on the pitch playing the game that he loved, leaving his family and friends, team mates, management team and all at the Club quite simply heartbroken.
The Club’s website records: “From that moment on every game has been played with Dan uppermost in everyone’s hearts and minds. The lads never doubted that with Dan as their 12th man they would win the league and gain promotion to the NPL Premier Division for him.
“#LetsDoItForDan became the mantra and the season has concluded with the Ducks doing the double for Dan!”
