FORMER Manchester United midfielder Matty Williams was the hero of the hour as the Saints beat Newtown 2-0 in today's Welsh Cup Final.

Williams paid tribute to his fellow team mates following the game.

He said: "It is such a fantastic achievement for the lads and what a season we have had.

"It has been unbelieveable and the consistency levels have been great.

"Today we did ok in the first half, but lacked penetration, but the first goal settled us down and the front three were excellent in the second half."

The midfielder also praised Phil Baker for his part in the first goal, and believes the players can look forward to a deserved break now.

He said: "Newtown put balls into the box, from set plays and we had to deal with that, we had to do the ugly side of the game.

"Our footballing ability showed though in the second half, and the goal wasn't route one it was done with a purpose.

"Pip has seen the pass, and it was well worked, and the lads can welcome the break after a hard 11 and a half months."

Boss Craig Harrison labelled it a perfect end to a perfect season.

He said: "It has been great and what a way to end things.

"I think we controlled the game today, but Newtown made it tough, they sat in, tried to hit us on the counter attack, but we controlled possession

"They troubled us from set plays, like we knew they would, but we were comfortable."
