The draw for the Vets league Cup has been made, and Cotswool have been drawn against the mighty Cribbs FC, currently sitting proud at the top of Division 1.
We couldn’t have had a tougher draw, but we’ll give it our all.
Ah about time too. A new home for Cotswool LegEnds, separate from those disorganised young’uns from the 1sts & Ressies.
From now on, for the foreseeable future, this is where all fixture announcements, match reports and misc bits and bobs will be posted. If you would like to contribute contact Manager Berridge.
At the home of chocolate, Cotswool served up a treat of a performance to match any fare served on the well heeled tables of Bishopston. Demonstrating a voracious appetite for goals and rediscovering an almost forgotten taste for organisation, the Old boys prepared a fine victory.
Labouring the food metaphors, the first course (half) saw the Legends begin confidently, Duds and Gerry establishing early command of the midfield, with the defence gobbling up any goal threat. The first goal came courtesy of excellent link up play between the burgeoning Keegan-Toshack partnership of Stu and Tim up front. Tim found a good position, and played a one two with stu before sending Stu in with a defence splitter of a pass, allowing the Lambert smoking hit man to slot past the keeper. Stu then returned the favour, playing Tim in for a race with the goalie, which the goalie sort of won, getting to the ball just before Tim who scored with a tackle.
Clifton then had a bit of a go, Woodworth brilliantly saving a dubious pen to underline the strong goalie DNA that runs through those veins*, before their best player had time to juggle the ball like a hot potatoe and hit a rocket in for 2-1. Abnormal service was resumed when incredibly, 2 Cots players were on the same wavelength with Mark taking a quick free kick to duds, who had time in the box to slam in the third.
At the interval it was all talk of keeping shape, not letting em back into the game and seeing this one out. However, this dish was to prove a bit more tricky to concoct, and for 20 mins of the second course Cots were 2nd best at times. However, perhaps learning the lessons of recent performances Cots remained calm-ish and gradually got back into the game, thanks to some good old fashioned hard graft in midfield. Even during this time though Woodworth remained relatively untroubled in goal.
The final few goals were scored on the break as Cots tore through relentlessly like the proverbial hot knife through low fat olive oil spread , creating and missing numerous chances but adding the icing on this particular cake with further goals from Elfs, Stu and Gerry.
If we keep up the hunger shown in this game, I’m sure it will pea a souper season.
