EVERETT ROVERS LIFT THE HERTFORDSHIRE SUNDAY INTERMEDIATE CUP

Last Sunday was a great day for football in Watford, as not only did The Hornets reach the Emirates FA Cup Final with their amazing comeback against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everett Rovers lifted the Hertfordshire FA Sunday Intermediate Cup with a 3-1 victory over Blacksmiths FC at the County Ground in Letchworth. 




The match pitched Everett who had recently been confirmed as Champions of the Watford Sunday League Division Two and Blacksmiths who were confirmed as Champions of the Herts Advertiser Sunday League Division One where they are fourteen points above their nearest challengers in Tansley. 

Everett looked the better side throughout the game and took a 0-2 lead in at half time. They had a chance to make it 3-0 with a penalty kick in the second half but Barry Mitchell, who under his profile in the programme it stated 'Will he take a penalty if the game is tight?', skyed the kick well over the bar much to the amusement of all connected with the team - I'm sure he even had a laugh about it after the game. It was 0-3 soon after when Meshach Williams (who has played for Hoddesdon Town, Hanwell Town, Cockfosters, Northwood and currently plays for Fleet Town on a Saturday) was fouled in the box and he stepped up himself to hit the ball into the back of the net. 





Blacksmiths had a good spell towards the end of the game and managed to get a goal back but the result never looked in any danger of being anything other than a Everett win. I have no doubt Blacksmiths will be back again next year to attempt to win the Trophy which has eluded them over the past few seasons - they reached the final in 2017 losing to Markyate and the last four in 2017/18 where they lost to the eventual winners Evergreen. 









BARRY MITCHELL - MISSED A PENALTY FOR EVERETT BUT TOOK HOME A WINNER'S MEDAL WITH A GOOD PERFORMANCE IN THE CENTRE OF MIDFIELD.
