Highworth win Bicester Invitational
After a busy few weeks we took a mixed over 50s/60s side to play in the Bicester Invitational tournament with our squad consisting of Kev, Cookie, Paddy, Jimmy, Dave, Steve Y, & Mike.
We were loaned a keeper for the day so thanks to Frank for helping us out.
We were in a group of 5 and got off to a slow start with a 0-0 draw with Cherwell before getting an early win against Bicester, 1-0 the scoreline courtesy of a Steve York Screamer!
This was followed by a change of formation which didnt work too well and we lost 2-0 to Bracknell.
Mike nicked himself a goal in the next game with Steve adding a second with yet another ferocious finish as we edged out Oxford A 2-0. This meant we finished top of the group.
Our quarter final had us up against Oxford B and they were despatched in similar fashion to their A team with a 2-0 victory, again Mike and Steve on the scoresheet.
So on to the semi-final and we avenged our earlier group game defeat by beating Bracknell 3-1, scorers this time round Kevin with 2 and Jimmy adding a 3rd.
Our good form continued in the final with a 2-0 win over Brackley, Kevin again grabbing a brace. Well done to everyone involved today.
