Sun 14th April 2013 - Shield
Chase Staggs 1 V 8 Falcons 2013
Pitch : Chase Staggs
Match Report

Falcons achieved one of their prime objectives for the season on Sunday by beating Chase Staggs to reach a major cup final. 

After an epic Quarter Final against Shelfield this was a much more straightforward affair with Falcons running out comfortable winners. The outcome was never in doubt after Tom had struck in the first couple of minutes and despite a strong wind blowing across the pitch Falcons were able to take a 5 – 1 half time lead following further quality strikes from Tom (2), Lukash and Dylan. What was particularly pleasing was that 2 of these goals were scored from corners following superb set piece deliveries by Jon and Louis. Despite their dominance though some of Falcons approach play and defending was a little ragged in the 1st half but possibly the wind played a part in this. 

The second half saw performance levels rise and at times the football played was excellent given the conditions. Only 3 more goals were scored with Tom grabbing a 4th, Dylan a 2nd and Jon getting on the score sheet but overall it was a much better half and credit should be given to Chase Staggs for continuing to battle right until the end of the match. 

A Cup Final now awaits, against either Colron or Church Farm on April 28th and this will be a fitting end to our first season of 11 a side football and a deserved reward for the excellent football that has been played by the lads throughout the last 7 months. 

MOM was awarded to Louis for continuing to demonstrate a willingness to get forward and create from Left Back and for his outstanding cross for Tom’s headed goal.

A final mention though should go to Joe J who made the 70 minute round trip to be with the lads and join in even though he is not allowed to take part in these Cup matches due to a rule that seems totally against the spirit of children’s football. It is to the leagues shame that they allow a situation where a child has to sit on the touchline regularly on a Sunday morning rather than be allowed to take part in a game of football.
