VIDEO: Gym United boss says fitness told but vows they will be back




Matt Morton is confident his Gym United side have not missed out on their chance to lift the FA Sunday Cup, following yesterday's heart-breaking extra-time defeat at Sheffield United to Hardwick Social.

The Bury & District Sunday League side made history by becoming the first Suffolk side to reach the final of the national competition, but ultimately just fell short of writing their names on the trophy with their north east opponents scoring twice in extra-time for a 2-0 victory.

Player-manager and chairman of Bury St Edmunds-based side Gym, Thetford Town defender Morton, admitted their fitness was not good enough on the day but it was something they would learn from in order to ensure they return to the final to get another crack at lifting the prestigious trophy.

Morton also went on to thank the local football community for all their support through their historic cup run.
