U21s out of the Staffordshire Senior Cup

Stoke City's U21s have been knocked out of the Staffordshire Senior Cup after suffering a 1-0 semi-final defeat against Leek Town on Tuesday.

The Potters were very much the team in control of possession either side of the break, creating plenty of half-chances without being able to convert.

However, it was Leek who found the breakthrough in the last ten minutes when an effort deflected in off Freddie Anderson and past goalkeeper Blondy Nna Noukeu.

Ryan Shawcross' side had claims for a penalty waved away in the closing stages when Tom Curl was clipped inside the area, however it was the hosts that progressed to the final.
