No Cup Triumph Hangover for Meads
Amateur Football Combination - Old Meadonians 5 University College London Academicals 1
Old Meadonians returned to their league programme after their recent triumph in the final of the A.F.A. cup by administering a five- one drubbing to third placed U.C.L. Academicals under lights at Hanwell Town on Tuesday.
Meads are now two points ahead with three games in hand over second placed Hamptonians and showed their class with a relentless, all action performance which left the Accies chasing shadows for most of the evening.
The second half saw very little letup in the onslaught as Meads pressed forward first Glover hit the bar from twenty five yards and ten minutes on got his reward, volleying in a cross from the left. Sub Steve Bowring got the fifth with ten minutes to go and Accies got their undeserved consolation in injury time.
Team: Sayers, Salanson, Butler, Williamson, McGuiness, (Cope), Costello, Kearney, Quinn, (Bond), Rhone, Hawkins, (Bowring), Glover.
