Little Oakley Age UK Essex Charitable Trophy

Little Oakley Age UK Essex Charitable Trophy

A good tournament today for a mixed 50+ teams.

There were 6 teams:
Chelmsford City
Little Oakley
Harwich Hornets (Little Oakley B team)
Walton Swifts
Walton Piers
Southend

We started off well against Little Oakley with a goal by Mark laid on by Terry winning 1-0.
Next we played Walton Piers and Brian and Terry got on the scoresheets with goals winning 2-0.
We then played our local derby against Southend, we kept Peters bunch at bay with a 0-0 draw, and Chris did well with a clean sheet so far.
We had Dominic from shooters to help us out as we only had the bear minimum of 6 players, and he played well in attack getting some shots and setting up some of Terry's goals.
Bill and Gary were solid in defence and Mark and Brian played good in midfield.
We then met Walton Swifts and went down 3-1, with Terry levelling it 1-1 at half time. We didn't gel that well as a team for this match and were unlucky, maybe not enough concentration and there was still a lot of contact, even though it was supposed to be non-contact.
Then we played Harwich Hornets and won 3-0, with 2 from Terry and 1 from Mark. Terry should have got a few more as he'd had several one on ones with the keeper, but he was a big bloke to get one by!!

So after the main event we ended up with 10 points and joint second with Walton Swifts. Little Oakley won the round robin with 12 points.

We then had a play off for 2nd place against Walton Swifts. We had a few chances but they managed to score and we lost 1-0.

Walton Swifts and Little Oakley then had a play off Final, and Walton Swifts won on Penalties.

Overall we won 3, lost 2 and drew 1. So I put the score up in games as winning 3-2.

Our saving grace was that we only lost to the overall winners, and beat the round robin winners.

We managed to sneak a photo with the trophy even though we did not bring it back, unfortunately Bill was already in the shower!!
