SENIOR RES CUP SEMI FINAL
Stowmarket Town Reserves 1
Long Melford 0
Words from reserves manager Craig Brown
Saturday we traveled to Claydon FC to play our Senior Res Cup semi final against a well drilled Long Melford side.
We started the game very brightly and dominated the opening 10 mins. MOTM Reon and Dan Knights causing Melford problems, with either side really creating massive chances we went in at half time all square 0-0.
Second half Melford come out with the slope and had a couple of long range efforts one hitting our crossbar. Captain Graham scored a spectacular volley into the top corner to put us 1-0 up after a Reon Huckvale flick from a Dan knight cross.
We tried to get the all important second goal but on the 80th minute captain Graham was shown a straight red for a tackle in the middle of the pitch. The lads dug in defended superbly to hold on to reach our second final in 3 years against the same opponent Walsham Res who we lost to 3-1 in 2018/19 season. It’s set up to be a blockbuster massive.
Thank you for the support Saturday and hoping on Saturday 14th May we get a few more faces at Bury Town as we try make a mens, very proud manager my very young side have delivered a final great achievement up the stow
