Another month, another competition. Todays event was organised by Boston and Swineshead FC. It was held at Swineshead's ground, and I must admit the facilities and hospitality was superb.
The players representing Stamford Strollers Over 60's today were -
In the Over 60's there were two groups 5. Stamford were placed in Group 2 alongside Norwich, Discovery Sports, Gimsby AM and Sleaford.
Stamford 0 v Norwich 0.
A hard fought game against a strong Norwich side.
Stamford 0 v Discovery Sp 2.
A game against some very physical opponents. Jez Norris, in particular was victim of a few hefty challenges from behind.
Stamford 3 v Grimsby AM 0.
A deserved first win for the side. Two goals from Jez Norris and one from W.Barrett.
(Yes Taff Lovesey, that is correct. A goal in August 😮).
Stamford 0 v Sleaford 1.
Despite having most of the play, we were undone by Sleaford.
This result meant we finished 4th in the group and went into the Plate semi finals.
In our semi final we played against Spilsby. Despite having most of the possession, and chances, the game finished 0 - 0. We went through to the final after winning the penalty shootout.
In the final we met Leeds Titans. After 15 mins of game time, plus 5 mins of extra time. The game ended 0 - 0 and onto a penalty shootout. Unfortunately, we lost out on sudden death.
A collective effort from the squad today.
