Leamington FC Vet’s 4 Cubbington FC 1
This was a game of two halves and Cubbington drew first blood. A smart turn and shot by Jack Gibson from the edge of the box put Cubbington ahead on five minutes! The vet’s were stunned and they took a while to settle. Chances came at both ends and massive tackles snuffed out chances for both teams. Despite getting more into the game Cubbington held firm and took their lead into the half time break. The Vet’s nearly equalised just after the restart when Ross Jackson met a free kick at the back post but his volley cleared the bar. Five minutes later and the Vet’s were level. Martin Thompson getting onto the end of a loose ball to slip it into the net. Less than ten minutes later and Ross Jackson gives the Vet’s the lead with a smart finish. Four minutes later and Paul Lee comes on as a sub. Twelve minutes later and Lee is on the Scoresheet. A sweet stepover from Jackson lets the ball roll through to Lee who smashes home from 15 yards. Five minutes later and Lee grabs another closing down a poor back pass and firing into an empty net from 30 yards out. The Vet’s win the Cup.
We move on to League action and start as usual with Division 1
