Senior Service Delivers A Third World Cup Title

By Sam Elliott

We all of course have everything crossed, but whatever happens in Russia over the next five weeks or so at least the National League can boast a World Cup winner or two.

Eastleigh manager Andy Hessenthaler, Maidstone United assistant Nicky Southall and Guiseley goalkeeping coach Steve Dickinson have done the nation proud.

The trio have landed home after the England Veterans tasted glory in Thailand this weekend.

The 2018 Seniors World Cup was clinched in emphatic style - and for a third time is successive tournaments.

The Three Lions ran riot again Iran in the semi finals with a fantastic 4-0 win.

England then repeated the trick against Scotland in the final as they were far too strong in the Hua Hin Stadium.

Mark Saunders put the team in front at half-time, and a one-time Conference face got in on the act after the break.

Former Weymouth and Exeter City man Lee Elam’s strike either side of Jason Price and Steve Jones efforts sealed the deal.

Stones Southall said it was “an amazing experience” as England made it three in a row.
