The U14s McCarthy & Stone Challenge Cup Final was held at KGV on Sunday 14th April. Between Poole Town Wessex and Redhill Rangers.
To say it was eventful was an understatement, with PTW only having ten players available and after twelve minutes their goalkeeper received a serious looking knee injury the game was held up for nearly an hour.
Once the player was removed from the field of play the PTW manager asked his players if they wanted to play on and to their credit they agreed to do so.
This is when it got really exciting with PTW putting up a stubborn resistance and a skilful approach by Redhill , PTW broke away and scored an excellent goal.
Second half was just the same with both teams being totally committed and Redhill really going for it , and with twelve minutes to go equalised. This resulted with Redhill progressing and getting the winner in the last minute.
On behalf of the BYFL I would like to thank both teams for their commitment and endeavour in creating a great Final.
Both teams are a credit to their clubs, the BYFL and more importantly themselves.
Alan Paull Chairman BYFL.
