Goldsmith Williams (Eng)




Real Apsley (Eng)


The big question going into the 2008 Prague Masters Final was could Real Apsley find a way to beat red hot favourites Goldsmith Williams. Real Apsley had so far had a great competition and boasted the tournament's leading marksman in Lee Carter. Could this potent threat in front of goal be the way to defeat Goldsmith Williams.

If so, it had not worked in the group phase when these two sides met and Real Apsley found themselves on the wrong end of an 8-2 scoreline. Goldsmith Williams had quality up front themselves and had goals from everywhere with Chris Williams , Kevin Smith , David Lowry and, in particular, Adam Spicer all scoring freely.

The game actually followed a similar pattern this time round with Real Apsley again breaching the Goldsmith Williams twice. Predictably Lee Carter was one of those men but the second goal came from an unlikely source as James Howells scored his first of the competition. A great time to score in a final and a great personal moment for him.

As in the first game though Goldsmith Williams had the greater firepower and whilst they could not emulate the eight goals of the group game they did manage to beat Real Apsley keeper Chris Owen and his defence on six occasions. Mike Hughes got the ball rolling before goals from Chris Williams , Kevin Smith and David Lowry. Adam Spicer then added the final two goals to complete a 6-2 victory.

A sub-plot in this final was the race for the Golden Boot and the prize of tournament top goalscorer. Adam Spicer and Lee Carter came head to head for this and whilst Adam Spicer scored more in this particular game, Carter had enough goals in hand to take the Golden Boot prize with an impressive tally of 17. Our congratulations to him on a fine achievement.

Overall though I do not think anyone on the day could dispute the fact that Goldsmith Williams were worthy winners of this competition as they became the first overseas team to take glory in a Prague tournament.
