By Mark Sampey
U10 Red's Reach Cup Final
The Under 10 Red’s team reached their first Cup Final by seeing off a strong Ilkeston team in a keenly contested semi-final today. Excellent performances from all of the players as the score line ebbed and flowed throughout the match – saw Bingham take an early 2 goal lead through Jamie and Sid, before being pegged back to 2-2 at half time.
An early second half goal from midfielder Ben, was cancelled out mid way through the second half by the hosts. However, with great determination, attitude and much skill throughout from all the lads, saw the team ultimately re-take the lead as Callum converted an excellent through ball brilliantly past the advancing Ilkeston Goalkeeper. The U10 Red’s saw out the final 5 minutes to deservedly take their place in May’s Cup Final.
This result added to their unbeaten run stretching back to early November, with smiles on the faces of all the boys from the start to the finish showing the enjoyment of how they are playing.
