Our final game of the season was away to Cumnor and we had a pretty poor start. We took at least 10 minutes to settle into the game, and in that time Cumnor scored 2 goals. Once we started passing the ball we immediately became much more of a threat, and Louis linked up with Luca who passed to Sam R who finished off what was a lovely team goal. From there Luca struck again quite soon after an excellent individual run. Just before half time Luca scored again, and at the break we were ahead 3-2.
During the break I stressed the importance of defending well and scoring the next goal. Cumnor put us under considerable pressure early on, but the whole team worked hard, and Liban, James and Cosmic were able to keep the opposition at bay though they did have some good chances. In the final minute of the game Luca was fouled in the box, and a penalty was awarded. Luca calmly fired home from the spot to complete his hat-trick and finish the season with an excellent total of 13 goals, a new record for the Colts A’s. Well done to the whole team, it’s always good to get a win over Cumnor and this was a fine end to the season for us!
