THURLSTONE 2 vs 4 RENEGADE FOOTBALL - Junior Cup (report by Tom Evans)

Another hat-trick came Mikey Vella’s way as Renegade Football won 4-2 at Thurlstone. After missing a load of chances and hitting the bar twice Vella finally made the breakthrough with some clever footwork before slotting past the keeper. Totally against the run of play a couple of long balls from Thurlstone caught out the defenders on a slanted pitch and it was 2-1 to Thurlstone at half-time. Renegade dominated the second half, but couldn't find the breakthrough until the 80th minute when a through ball allowed Vella to round the keeper and score. Within moments of the kick off Renegade won the ball back and a great run down the wing and a ball across the goal allowed Vella to complete his hat-trick. Super sub and manager Tom Evans produced a great left footed finish to make the game safe. Referee John Burrows had an outstanding game.

Jacob Rickards also scored twice as Water Tower won at Renegade, and Shakey and Beighton Magpies fought out a thrilling draw. Tower started fast on a tough pitch and went ahead when Olly Beaumont latched onto a through ball from full back Jack Charlesworth before lobbing the keeper. Renegade levelled through Christian Dunning’s bullet header from a corner, but Tower went back in front before half-time when Rickards linked up well with Beaumount before firing past the keeper. After the break Rickards doubled his tally when he poked home a Sam Reed cross. Sub Sam Mumford first touch was to smash a volley past the keeper, making Mikey Vella’s goal for Renegade just a consolation.

We finish the month at home against top of the league, unbeaten Brinsworth!
