NOTTS SENIOR LEAGUE
FC SAMBA 2 ASPLEY PARK FC 6
After Ashland Rovers game was cancelled due to the heavy snow had on Wednesday and the pitch not fit, it was set for plan B as I needed to be back home early due to it being Hazel my wife's birthday so we could go out for a evening family meal, so with FC Samba's 2nd Round Senior League Cup tie kicking off at 1.30pm this fitted the bill.
Just before kick off I was joined by the joint managers of Sherwood Colliery Reserves FC, Scott Thorpe Ive known as a friend for some years now. Referee Steve Seers kindly handed me the home line up and then I found the Aspley Sec Les Tebbutt for theirs.
The game kicked off and straight away a ball was played forward and landed at the feet of GARY HARRIS who lifted the ball over the home keeper after just 31 SECONDS!!
It was GARY HARRIS who doubled his sides lead after just 6 minutes and the tie looked as if it was all over. On 23 minutes, SAM MANNION fired a long distance shot to make it 3-0 to Aspley Park.
FC Samba didn't give up and on 28 minutes, and a quick cross from the right wing by LEIGH HELSDON took a deflection and ended up in the net to reduce the arrears to 1-3. On 31 minutes, we had a game on when MARC GREEN fired his team to within a goal.
After 40 minutes, RYAN DEABILL scrambled home from close range to make it 4-2 to Aspley Park.
The Second Half belonged to Aspley Park as the homesters failed to get out their own half, and it came as a surprise that the away team had to wait so long before they scored again, but they did when SEAN GREEN turned in the 6 yard box and poked the ball home after 71 minutes.
Aspley Park wrapped up the scoring in the 84th minute, when LEWIS McGOOGGAN scored close home.
