Long Bennington are fast turning in to our bogey team. Having one our first three games we faced them and fought out a tight 2-2 draw. This put us ahead as they had tied with Boston whereas we had beaten them. This left us needing to win our last game v Impingham to win the tournament.
Sadly it wasn't to be. I lost count how many chances we put wide or were saved by a very good keeper and we finished the game 0-0. All was not lost though as we have beaten one of the weaker teams 9-0 and Long Bennington were playing them and needed to win by 7 to pip us on goal difference. They won 8-0 so we finished two goals behind them.
So Long Bennington lifted the winners trophy and we finished second both on 11pts.
We did bring back the runners up trophy though.
Stamford 2 - 1 Spilsby (Paul B, Jez)

Stamford 2 - 2 Long Bennington (Paul B x 2)
