Cup Final Match Report

On Tuesday the 14th Butlers Court played Great Missenden in the final of the cup. It was scorching weather and there were lots of supporters for each team. It started with great defending by Jack and James until Ted won a free kick. Tommy floated in the ball and it was headed out for a corner. Again tommy took it and it was played out to the edge of the box, William hit and with a great backheeled flick it was in the back of the net. A great start for Butlers Court, the half ended 1-0 to us.

 

It was a great 50/50 game from then on with attacks from both teams. After some time there was a scramble in the penalty area and Great Missenden were lucky to score. The game went on until it was 1-1 at full time. All the boys exhausted but we had to play extra time. There was a very skilful winger on the opposing team and James Murray did fantastically stop him. Alexander in goal was solid and we were unlucky to score at the other end. The game finished 1-1 so the cup was shared. All the team played greatly so can they stand up. Thanks also to Mr Sutton for managing us.
