This Saturday saw the Colts take a rest from league action to play White Eagles in the semi final of the Gardener Cup.Colts took an early lead on 5 mins through Alex Conway, a great header at the back post to powerful for the Eagles keeper to keep out. Eagles responded right away with a good goal, it was then pretty much even throughout the first half but Wael-Rach Pocock-Kahla had other ideas scoring from a Conway knock down 2-1 up! Half time 2-1 Colts.
No changes for the second half and the Colts stepped up and ran away with it. Shane Hills scored to make it 3-1 after cutting in from the left and beating their keeper at the near post. Wael then notched his second goal 4-1 and the celebrations went wild taking his shirt off and celebrating in front of Bridgwater Wolves who we play in the final! And he didn’t even get a booking for it. Will Mumby replaced the excellent Dan Cooke, Joey Conway replaced Hills and manager Andy Springer replaced the beast of a captain Matthew Charles. Springer oozed class and helped in the build up to Joeys goal! 5-1 full time score! The back 4 with Chris McKee who’s distribution was first class again, the returning Owen Lindsay rock solid, Callum Corns lead well and lost 2 balls, Sam Bate mr Excellent. Midfield middle of Cooke, Joel Durkin who was excellent and man of the match Alex Conway. Wael out wide left was brilliant and Ben Evett who every opponent wants to kick was excellent. Hills and Harris up top ran themselves into the ground.
With the cup final in the bag. News filtered through to the Bishops Lydeard Colts Fc camp! Galmington had lost at Minehead which meant with 1 game left Galmington can’t catch us! DIVISION 3 CHAMPIONS!!!! Up the colts’
Well done boys
Andy Springer & Carl Salter
