IN A bitterly disappointing end to the season for last year's double winners, Manchester United, Everton lifted the FA Cup yesterday, thanks to a single first-half goal from Paul Rideout. Graham Stuart had hit the underside of the bar but Rideout was on hand to head home the rebound.

So United's season ends with a consolation prize of a UEFA cup place after finishing second in the Premier League to Blackburn Rovers. Everton, at the bottom of the League eight months ago, walk away with one of the top prizes."It's been a very disappointing six days for us," said United captain Steve Bruce.
