After Extra Time
played at Hucknall Rolls Leisure FC
Linby finally made their way through to the Final in extra time after a excellent advert for football.
Ashland Reserves play in the Notts Senior League Division Two, whilst holders of the Junior Cup, Linby Reserves play in the division above.
The game began evenly with both sides creating chances, but Ashland had to make a very sub when their player/manager went to the ground after twisting his foot. On the half hour, it was Ashland who were making the better chances with back line of Linby clearing off their goal line twice.
Linby came out in the Second half with more intent on having a go at goal but Ashland held firm until after a foul on the right side, Linby received a free kick which was floated to the far post where ALISTAIR MURRAY headed home on 65 minutes.
Ashland pushed forward and on 72 minutes were on level terms when JULIAN TOPLISS hit a cute angled ball home. From there on, it was Linby on the front foot, but it remained 1-1 at 90 minutes.
In to extra time and again Linby made the better start and on 95 minutes, LUKE PRICE hit home the winner to see the holders through to the Final to meet either Kimberley MW or Keyworth United.
