Meadonians capture first trophy of the season
a bright sunny day at Civil Service sports ground, Chiswick, Old
Meadonians were victors in a thrilling encounter with Winchmore
unknown quantity to the side from Chiswick, it was clear from the
start that Winchmore Hill were going to be no pushovers. In the
normal Cup Final posturing first half, Meads were the more convincing,
with openings created and their opponents restricted to long range
efforts easily dealt with by Sayers in goal.
to award Winchmore Hill a penalty for an innocuous challenge with
ten minutes to half time on the clock, shocked, it seems, even the
penalty taker. Only he will know how he managed to stab the ball
into the spreading legs of Sayers, Meads "shot stopper extraordinaire".
second half was dominated from start to finish by Meads and, the
two deftly taken goals from Ben Fox was just reward for a Meads
side who have out played most teams this season. A header into the
roof of the net and a sweet side footed volley into the bottom corner
from the lively Fox sent the crowd of hundreds whooping with delight.
games and another Cup Final on Tuesday 8th April at Wingate and
Finchley await this exciting team and "the treble" remains
