Bialoazzuri FC (Pol)




Audley Witney (Eng)

Audley London (Eng)




Hotpockets (Ire)

* Audley Witney (Eng) won 2-1 on penalties.


We were down to the final four teams in our Trophy competition and first up was Bialoazzuri FC (Pol) versus Audley Witney (Eng).

These two teams were the two biggest points scorers from the group phase of the teams to qualify for the Trophy. They had 11 between them. Bialoazzuri FC had the best defence of the two teams with just 8 conceded in their 6 games so far. Audley Witney were the highest scoring of the two teams with 11 goals scored today.

It was first blood to Bialoazzuri FC as Paffruo Lopez scored for the second game running. Eddie Stevens was Audley Witney's top scorer today with 6 goals so far and he added his most important to date. His seventh goal drew his team level 1-1 and meant this game would require a penalty shoot-out to decide the winner.

Bialoazzuri FC would take the first spot kick but it was Audley Witney FC who would take the initiative as Ian Goodwin made the save. Eddie Stevens rammed home that advantage by sweeping his penalty into the bottom corner. Paffruo Lopez scored in normal time and he converted his penalty to make it 1-1. Audley Witney had a penalty in hand but they lost that initiative as Matt Eagle saw his penalty saved. Richard Harrison could change the direction of this shoot-out but he dragged his penalty wide giving Audley Witney a chance to win it.

Ian Goodwin, the Audley goalkeeper, stepped forward to take it. As his opposite number moved to the right Goodwin slotted his penalty home left of centre to put his team into the Trophy Final.


So, who would meet Audley Witney in the Final? Would it be Audley London or Hotpockets?

There was also the prospect of an Audley versus Audley final. Audley London FC had received a bye in the Quarter-Finals so had an extended wait. Could this give them an advantage to rest weary legs and get oxygen back in the lungs. Alternatively, would the wait give time for muscles to seize up and the players to get rusty.

It was Hotpockets who took the lead as Pa O'Brien and Sean O'Donnell afforded their team a 2-0 lead. Duncan Gordon reduced the lead to 2-1. From thereon in though it was one way traffic. Pa O'Brien continued his fine goal scoring record as he scored four more to take his personal total to 14 goals for the day. Sean O'Donnell and John Gray also increased their personal haul as Hotpockets ran out 8-1 winners.
