Old Meadonians 7th XI 10-2 Old Actonians 8th XI
AFA Junior Novets Cup Round 3
Saturday 6th January 2007
While it shetted down with rain over Riverside Lands, and we reflected on a stupendous Smackdown birthday celebration, the Mighty Meads 7s crushed an inferior Actonian side 10-2 to move into the AFA Cup quarter finals.
Despite going a goal down early on Meads fought back through Trotter and Ring (2) to take a 3-1 half time lead. An early second half goal set the tone for a rout. Yorath finished with 5, Ring 2, Trotter 2 and substitute Rhys Dee also bagged. Despite only playing 25 minutes, substitute Castella Delgado Rodriguez Gaucho assisted 4 goals with his delightful first-time crosses.
Messrs Haxton and Sellers made their first starts for the club in what was a memorable cup success and a top notch collective performance.
A big thank you to the fan base of AJ, Crissy, Aido, Shed Ted, Sherry, Jack Jose and Big Eddie Stobart Kohn for attendance and support on what was a truly disgusting winter's day!
C Sellers, E Haxton, N Lee, A Shaw, M Green, N Holmes, D Yorath, R Kohn, A Trotter, M Ring (A Rhys Dee – 60), D Jacobs (D Castella – 65)
