HODDY RESERVES LIFT THE SOUTH MIDLANDS FLOODLIGHT CUP

DEFENCES ON TOP & PENALTY SHOOT OUT DRAMA







Pictures from The Recreation Ground on Wednesday night. Thought I best include the floodlights in the last one seeing as it was the 'Floodlight Cup Final'

St Marageretsbury Reserves and Hoddesdon Town Reserves finally got to play their rain delayed South Midlands Floodlight Cup Final on Wednesday 16th May. The local derby was a keenly contested encounter with lots of tackles flying in and was played in front of a really decent crowd at 'Bury's Recreation Ground. Defences were on top throughout the ninety minutes and thirty minutes extra-time with there being very few proper goalscoring chances. Saying that thought every player gave 100% and there was lots of effort put in indicated by numerous players from both teams going down with cramp in extra-time - this after running themselves into the ground on a heavy pitch for 90+ minutes!

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday 3rd May but was postponed due a waterlogged pitch as the below photo by shows.
The Rec pitch on Thursday 3rd May.

The game went down to the drama of a penalty shoot-out which is all captured on camera with highlights shown below.
