Challenge Trophy Final (75)

Gresley Reserves 4 Romulus 4 after extra-time (Gresley win 8-7 on penalties)

Gresley Reserves were looking to do the league and cup double as they welcomed Romulus Reserves to the Moat Ground. The league games between the two sides had been shared with the home side winning on each occasion. Another close encounter was expected but no-one could have predicted the drama that was about to unfold. In the 8th minute, Romulus’ Anthony Smith turned away from Luke Clamp only to be pulled back, the referee deciding not to show a yellow card. A minute later, Richie Olusanoya was through on goal for Romulus but Max Atkin made a decent save. Gresley broke responded with Kyle Peplow saving a header from Kane Lee. Taylor Allen was fractionally off target for Romulus but it was the Roms that took the lead in the 13th minute. Smith jinked along the by-line and was clearly tripped in the box. Smith himself took the penalty giving Atkin no chance. Both sides were playing with a lot of pace although the hard, bumpy surface was proving a challenge. In the 22nd minute, Harry Lansdowne wasted a chance for the home side, hitting the side-netting when well placed. There were a lot of committed tackles flying in with neither side giving any quarter. An excellent challenge from Luke McGinnell stopped Gresley’s leading scorer, Josh Dutton in his tracks. In the 29th minute, Dutton finally got free of his marker but his shot was fractionally off target. Romulus should have doubled their lead in the 33rd minute. Isaac Allen played a low ball into the 6-yard box where it was met by Thomas McGillivray who hit the target but Atkin deflected it over the bar. Gresley were inches away from an equaliser in the 36th minute. Dutton found Zakim Evans with an excellent ball and with keeper Peplow off his line, Evans attempted lob from 45 yards landed just over the crossbar. With the first half coming to a close, McGinnell was on hand to block a close-range effort from Lee.

Gresley started the second half well and were close to an equaliser in the 48th minute. A scramble in the Romulus penalty area ended with a fine goalline clearance from McGillivray. A free-kick to Romulus was floated into the box and Lansdowne headed wide when unmarked. Romulus doubled their lead in the 52nd minute with a goal of high quality. A superb crossfield ball was controlled by Taylor Allen who cut inside, picked his spot and shot emphatically into the corner. Romulus were well on top and the impressive Dexter Walters was a constant threat. In the 61st Minute, a cross from Walters was punched by Atkin straight onto the head of Taylor Allen who could only nod back into the arms of the fortunate keeper. The game, which had been bubbling for some time, boiled over in the 68th minute when there was a really poor challenge on Walters by James Hemingway. The Gresley defender came off worse and, after a lengthy delay, was stretchered off. Hemingway received a yellow card which perhaps should have been red, while Smith was yellow carded for comments made which appeared to have infuriated the home side. Gresley were not out of this yet and a cross from Josh Garland was flicked wide by fellow sub Sam Hammerton. In the 79th minute it appeared that Romulus had put the game out of reach with a third goal. Smith was fouled on the edge of the area by Harry Hughes. McGillivray stepped up and curled the ball over the wall and into the top corner – a superb free-kick. With 5 minutes of normal time left, Lee pulled a goal back for Gresley, sliding home after Peplow had been caught out of position. Gresley were grateful to keeper Atkin a minute from time when he made a fine save to thwart Walters. Due to the earlier injury delay, there would be plenty of added time and in the 5th minute of stoppage time, Gresley pulled another goal back. Dutton beat keeper Peplow and Hammerton was on hand to force the ball over the line. If the game was exciting before, it was now at fever pitch. Back came Romulus and Kieran Briscoe had a great chance to seal it after more good work by Walters but Atkin was again in the right place at the right time to make a save. With Gresley throwing everything forward, there were spaces at the back and in the 8th minute of added on time, Walters was foiled by Atkin and Smith was wide with the volley from the rebound – a great chance missed. Still we carried on, and Atkin was thrown forward for a corner. The dead ball was delivered and it was the keeper who powered a header inches past the post. The first of the day’s red cards followed with Dutton and the impressive Kyle Burke shown straight reds for an off the ball incident. In the 13th minute of time added on, the drama that we had all expected happened, Lee was tripped in the area with the referee pointing to the spot.

After what seemed an age, Ryan Clemson tucked his penalty home in the 14th minute of added time to draw Gresley level.

After the drama of the 90(!) minutes, what would extra-time bring. Four minutes after the restart it brought red card number three with Hughes shown a second yellow card for Gresley. Both sides were enjoying plenty of space but it appeared that the exertions of normal time had taken their toll as the game became more cagey. Romulus went close when a free-kick from Harry Sweeney dropped just over the Gresley bar. It was the 9-men of Gresley that were celebrating in the 102nd minute. A free-kick from the left was missed by everyone and after it rebounded off the post, Callum Porter was on hand to stab the ball home.

Into the second period of extra-time and Romulus poured forward. A ball over the top saw Atkin race off his line and collide with Briscoe, the challenge deemed to be a fair one. Romulus should have been level two minutes later. A shot from Smith was fumbled by Atkin and Isaac Allen out his shot wide of the post. Romulus were reduced to 9 men in the 114th minute when McGillivray was shown a straight red. Romulus were back on level terms three minutes from the end of extra time. A header from Briscoe rebounded off the bar and man of the match Walters was on hand to fire home the rebound. Reaction to the goal caused another lengthy delay to the game and when people had finally calmed down, McGinnell became the fifth player to see red following his goal celebration. Neither side could break the deadlock and penalties would decide the winners.

Romulus made a change at the start of penalties, passing the goalkeeping duties to forward Smith who, being much taller, potentially posed more of a threat to Gresley. The penalty shoot-out went as follows:

Garland (Gresley) 1-0 Smith (Romulus) 1-1

Lee (Gresley) 2-1 Isaac Allen (Romulus) 2-2

Evans (Gresley) 3-2 Kieran Moran (Romulus 3-3)

Lansdowne (Gresley) 4-3 Briscoe (Romulus) 4-4

Clemson (Gresley) 5-4) Sweeney (Romulus) 5-5

Hammerton (Gresley) 6-5 Walters (Romulus) 6-6

Atkin (Gresley) 7-6 Sean Davis (Romulus) 7-7

Porter (Gresley) 8-7 Peplow (Romulus) Saved

So, the Trophy went to Gresley but you have to feel for the Romulus keeper Kyle Peplow. The last of the 8 remaining Romulus players to take a penalty and it is saved by his opposite number. A wonderful game of football that had everything, good, bad, ugly but utterly compelling. Congratulations to Gresley on securing the double and congratulations to Romulus for going so close.

President’s Cup Final (76)

Alvis Sporting Club 2 Fairfield Villa 3

What could be better on a pleasant spring evening than a cup final on the banks of the River Severn. Walshes Meadow, the home of Stourport Swifts, was the venue for this clash between two of the leading lights from Division 2. Fairfield suffered a blow in the pre-match warm up when keeper Chris Mole was injured and he had to be replaced by Aaron Collins. Alvis had the game’s first opportunity. Steve Minard set up Tommy Maguire. His shot was blocked and Dildale Linton hammered the rebound over the bar. Alvis were unlucky not to take the lead in the 8th minute. A free-kick from Michael Quirke was pushed onto the post by Aaron Collins with Linton unable to convert the rebound. Fairfield had the ball in the net a minute later when Stuart Hall got on the end of a Ryan Molesworth cross but the eagle-eyed referee spotted that Hall had handled the ball into the net, receiving a yellow card in the process. Alvis wasted a great opportunity in the 16th minute when Calvin Thompson was afforded a free-header from a Maguire corner but the header was off target. The woodwork denied Fairfield in the 17th minute when James McKeon curled a superb effort past James Wardle, the ball rebounding off the inside of the post. Fairfield took the lead in the 23rd minute. Ellis Blakemore broke through the centre of the Alvis defence, played the ball back to Connor Collins and the leading scorer sent an unstoppable shot past Wardle. Straight from the kick-off, Quirke was caught in possession by Connor Collins who needed no second invitation to shoot underneath Wardle to make it two goals in 40 seconds. Minard had an opportunity for Alvis on the half hour mark but volleyed straight at Aaron Collins. Four minutes later, the same player shot wide of the target as Alvis looked to respond. Fairfield extended their lead in the 38th minute. A through ball from Blakemore evaded Sam Murphy and Connor Collins latched onto it to get his and his side’s third goal of the evening. Blakemore should have made it 4, three minutes later, missing the target after being set up by Connor Collins. Joe Brookes was marginally off target with another effort for Fairfield before Corrie Powell forced a save at his near post from Aaron Collins. In stoppage time, Connor Collins was close to his 4th goal, the shot flashing inches wide.

Alvis were back in it four minutes into the second half. A free-kick from Maguire fell invitingly to Kiam Galdins who shot into the corner. With Alvis having to go for goals, the game opened up even more with chances at both ends. Daniel Wilkes fired over the bar for Fairfield before Aaron Collins made a decent save from Maguire with Galdins blazing the rebound over the bar. In the 66th minute, Shane Brassington looked to have scored a second for Alvis but Aaron Collins made an excellent save. In the 73rd minute, Fairfield were denied a stonewall penalty when Molesworth was tripped in the box, the linesman ruling that the defender had taken the ball first. A cross from Alex Dinsmore was met with a powerful header by Hall and somehow Wardle kept his side in it with an acrobatic save. Gaps were opening up all over the field but Fairfield could not put their chances away and Alvis sensed they could get back in it. If it wasn’t for Aaron Collins they may have done, the keeper making another superb save to tip Maguire’s effort onto the bar. In the 84th minute, Alvis grabbed their second when Linton blocked Aaron Collins’ clearance, the ball rebounding into the net. In the 88th minute, Linton forced another save from Aaron Collins. Five minutes into stoppage time, the woodwork rescued Fairfield as Brassington’s effort rebounded off the post and Fairfield lifted the trophy.

A wonderful cup final and a credit to both sides and the MFL.

Under 21 Play-off Final (77)

Coventry United 0 Tamworth 5

Another glorious evening greeted the winners of the two respective Under 21 divisions as they locked horns to crown the champion Under 21 side for the season. Tamworth almost made the perfect start when a long free-kick bounced in front of Coventry keeper, Jack Tragartha and the ball arched towards the goal and had to be tipped over. The young Lambs had a great chance in the 4th minute. A corner from Curtis Shields picked out Ryan Stroud but he failed to get any downward pressure on the header. Lewis Ludford had Coventry’s first effort but his shot was over the bar. Coventry hit the woodwork in the 15th minute, Fortune Maphosa’s header landing on top of the crossbar. Tamworth took the lead in the 19th minute when Ellis Millard fired through a crowd of players. Coventry were close to being level two minutes later when Scott Hammond’s shot took a deflection and Abidan Edwards made a fine save. Tamworth had the ball in the net in the 28th minute, John Dodd finishing off a fine move from an offside position. Keaton Francis-Balou was off target with a volley for Coventry. Tamworth doubled their lead in the 32nd minute. Aaron Opoku used his strength to strive forward and his low cross was turned in at the far post by Eli Bako. Two minutes later, Bako got his second and Tamworth’s third, heading home from a Shields cross. Opoku blasted over the bar when in a good position. In the 41st minute, Tamworth were awarded a free-kick some 25 yards from goal and George Dixon’s effort was straight at Tragartha. In the final minute of the half, the impressive Ryan Palmer crossed for Francis-Balou but he failed to control the ball and the chance was gone.

Tamworth continued in the same positive vein at the start of the second half with Dodd having a shot cleared off the line and Opoku failing to keep the ball down and clearing the bar. Coventry were far more of a threat after the break without testing Edwards in the Tamworth goal. Palmer had a decent effort blocked by the Lambs defence on the hour mark. Opoku had a surging run towards the Coventry goal however the ball took an unfortunate bounce as he lined up his shot and it ballooned away to safety. Tamworth grabbed their fourth to put the result beyond doubt in the 71st minute. A free-kick was floated into the box where Jordan Featherstone got his head to the ball and it dropped into the net. Coventry continued to look for goals but they left gaps at the back. Two minutes into stoppage time, Bako grabbed his hat-trick, picking up a through ball and finishing clinically past Tragartha.

A solid win for the young Lambs who were better organised and more clinical on the night. A 5-0 scoreline barely does Coventry justice and their endeavour, particularly after the break, deserved to see them on the scoresheet.
