Merton Hall 1 Westfield 8
A superb team effort saw 'Field safely into the County Cup Semi-Final next month. On a small boggy pitch against a very competitive Merton Hall, 'Field showed terrific team spirit and played some quality football. Liam Stone in goal was in fine form from the start, commanding his box and coming out bravely on several occassions. Centre backs James Barrett, Steve Buckland and Dave Shutt all looked really fired up and imposed themselves on the dangerous Hall forwards containing them through out the majority of the match, while in midfield Max Galbraith, Dean Hayward-Brown and Mike Robson were everywhere and used the ball to good effect ever time they won it. Wing backs Jamie Folley and Mark Robson both worked tremendously hard up and down the flanks, supplying the forwards with regular good possesion, Duke Munroe replaced Robson just after half time he too should be pleased with his contribution. The front two Sam Lewiston and captain Flavio Cappiello were a constant handful for Hall, both playing unselfishly and creating regular chances for each other and team-mates. The goals came four in each half, the scorers were Lewiston 3, Cappiello 2, Folley 2 and sub James Kealy just back from injury who fired home at the far post to cap a great day.
Squad: Liam Stone, Jamie Folley, Dave Shutt, Steve Buckland, James Barrett, Mark Robson, Max Galbraith, Mike Robson, Dean Hayward-Brown, Sam Lewiston, Flavio Cappiello. Subs: Duke Munroe, James Kealy, Tom Bentley.
