Maclay Slip Out of County Cup

Sunday 25th January 2015
Berks & Bucks Sunday Junior Trophy 4th Round

MK City 3 (2) v Maclay 2 (1)
Scorers: B Gosling (4 min) & B O’Connor (54 min)

An inexperienced Maclay team slipped out of the County Cup.

Maclay started the match well and were rewarded when a scuffed free kick in the 11th minute was hammered into the back of the net by Maclay captain, BEVAN GOSLING. Maclay were dominating the match at this point but a defensive error enabled City to equalise against the run of play in the 22nd minute. City were encouraged by the goal and started to impose themselves on the game and were rewarded when a 40th minute free kick to the back post was neatly knocked in from a very narrow angle. Two one to City at half time and all to play for.

Maclay brought Joe Rochford on at half time but his strong running game was hampered when he took a knock to his ankle early in the half.

In the 54th minute BEN O’CONNOR neatly twisted and turned past a number of City players and was rewarded when his shot from outside the box squirmed past the City keeper. Two all.

Maclay started to play really well after the equaliser and the play moved from end to end in an enthralling match. Sadly Maclay’s possession came to nothing as a failure throughout the game to get shots on target meant that often the neat moves came to nothing.

Saif Hijjawi really started to play after the break and City struggled to keep him at bay. Disaster struck for Maclay when Hijjawi had to go off with a hamstring injury. This was a turning point in the match and enabled City to thwart the more predictable and less threatening Maclay attacks. City stuck to the task and were able to take the lead 5 minutes from the end when one of their many fast breaks was rewarded with a goal.

Maclay were unable to take the game into extra time as this season’s County cup campaign came to an end.

SALIH HODJA pipped Dan Rennison and Bevan Gosling to Man of the Match as a reward for his non-stop running and some absolutely crucial tackles.

Squad: P Hanlon, K Bonney, J O’Connor, B Gosling (capt), D Bryan, B O'Connor, S Hodja, R Prunty, A Cowland, C Rivers, J Rochford, Y Seodi, D Rennison & S Hijjawi


Man of Match: SALIH HODJA
