United bow out of Birmingham Senior Cup

United bowed out of the Birmingham Senior Cup last night after a below par performance saw Highgate United run out 5-3 winners at the Butts Park Arena. After going down to an early goal, United got back on terms and then in front within a good 20 minute spell where they took the game to the visitors. After that Highgate stepped up their game and got back on level terms themselves and regained the lead by half time. 

The second half saw Highgate keep the pressure on United and always seemed to keep United at bay and after scoring a couple of crackers mid-way through the second period, United's fate was sealed as Highgate saw the game out and fully deserved their passage into the next round.
