U8's Beaten In Final Of Keresley 6 - Side

John Rusted  Sunday, June 23, 2002  23:40 GMT

We took a strong squad for the Keresley Colts 6 - side tournament, and managed to progress to the semi finals thanks to 1-0 wins against Arley Orange,Ash Green Reds & Keresley Colts1, all of our goals being scored by Matthew Tallett. The third group game pitched us against Coventry Jaguar and they realised they had to stop  Matthew, they did but only when he was hurt after a clash over the ball. A tight match was settled by a hopefull long shot which floated into the top corner, Jaguars only shot in the match. This result made us group runners up, so we played Ash Green Blues in the semi's. The longer match helped us and we ran out 4-0 winners thanks to a Chris Storey hat trick and another from Matthew Tallett. So to the re-match with the Jaguar lads, another close game. Bulkington hit the post early on and forced a string of corners but couldn't score to reward our early pressure. Jaguar eventually grabbed the winner, scoring from a tight angle after the Bulkington defence failed to clear the ball, again the only shot Jaguar had in the match. The final whistle brought  tears from our lads and loud cheers from the Jaguar players and supporters (revenge for our win at Grove Farm) but there is always the next time July the 28th to be exact.
