Calton visited Fieldcourt in the first round of the knockout cup. Having never played them before this was a match where Calton looked to play their normal game and use the space on a pitch that was a lot bigger than our own pitch. Calton started well and attacked and defending with composure. Chances were being created and the boys were working well to support each other. Calton took a deserved lead when Barnaby capitalized on a precise through ball, we all thought he had over ran it, however he scored whilst on the byline with a great finish.
Fieldcourt did create more chances, but Calton defended well and Jayden in goal was impressive, with some amazing saves. Fieldcourt scored an n equaliser with a well taken goal that split Calton’s defence.
During the second half Calton continued to press the opposition well and create chances where possible, but importantly defended very well with some great last ditch tackles. Jayden continued to impress in goal with some diving saves, twice everyone thought they had scored by Jayden picked the ball out of the air with stunning athleticism.
Calton were unlucky not to be given a penalty for handball and Fieldcourt scored a well taken goal to take the lead.
Calton continued to press however an equaliser wasn’t found. We now go into the plate competition where the boys have a great chance of going all of the way.
Final score: 2:1 to Fieldcourt.
Player of the match Jayden.
