Meads Assert Themselves
A.F.A. Senior Cup Old Meadonians 3 Nottsborough 0
A quirk of fate brought Nottsborough, the team Old Meadonians beat in the final to carry off last season’s A.F.A. Senior Cup, to Riverside Lands for the first round of this season’s cup.
The return of striker Colin Hawkins from suspension and the continuing form of co-striker Henry Turner more than made up for the absence of Ed Glover, out till January with torn ankle ligaments.
In the third minute Hawkins skimmed the cross bar with a fierce drive from twenty yards and for the rest of the match he and Turner were to torment the visitors with the strength off their running. Ten minutes into the second half skipper Jack Costello beat the goalie to a fifty fifty through ball for the first.
