Boys Football

 Thursday 27th September
Wainfleet Road
Luke, Damian, Colby, Owen, Harry, Emerson, Corey and Ollie took part in the district rounds of the ESFA cup hoping to retain their title and progress to the county finals once again.

We got off to a winning start beating Woodhall St Andrew's by 2 goals to 0. Next up were Horncastle B, and this time we won by 5 goals to nil.
Our third match was against Burgh B and once again we ran out comfortable winners this time by 4 goals to 0.
In game 4 Burgh A took an early lead with a penalty and although we dominated the rest of the game we could not quite manage to get an equaliser.
That meant we had to hope Burgh dropped points against St Andrew's or Burgh B and that we then beat Horncastle A. The first part happened when St Andrew's held Burgh to a goalless draw so we knew a win against Horncastle would see us clinch top spot. We once again had the better of the game but nothing seemed to be going our way with shots hitting the crossbar and their goalkeeper making several saves. Finally the pressure told and we were awarded a penalty. Harry stepped up and scored. We then saw out the rest of the game to book our place in the county finals for the eighth year in a row.
