POSTED: July 11 2017 15:02:47. By David Farrand - LEAGUE CUP QUALIFYING ROUND 1 12.2.17



THIS WAS THE FIRST OF 3 QUALIFYING ROUNDS OF THE LEAGUE CUP BEECHY WERE DUE TO PLAY

THE MATCH KICKED OFF IN ATROCIOUS CONDITIONS WITH A BIITERLY COLD WIND BLOWING AND RAINING THE PITCH WAS IN A POOR STATE LOTS OFF THICK MUDDY PATCHES ALL OVER, IT HAD NOT HELPED AS THE PITCH HAD BEEN PLAYED ON IN THE MORNING OF THE GAME

THE REFEREE SAID HE WOULD START THE GAME BUT WOULD MAKE A DECISION 10-15 MINUTES INTO THE GAME WHETHER TO CARRY ON AFTER 15 MINUTES IT WAS DECIDED TO CARRY ON WITH THE GAME

THE GAME KICKED OFF AND WITHIN MINUTES DEBBIE RAN ON TO A BALL AND WAS JUST ABOUT TO SHOOT BUT SLIPPED IN THE MUD AND FINISHED UP ON HER BACK. THIS WAS THE FIRST OF MANY TIMES THROUGH THE MATCH THAT THE PITCH BEAT THE PLAYERS OF BOTH SIDES

REDDISH NEARLY TOOK THE LEAD WHEN A SHOT FROM THE LEFT FLEW PASSED ELINA (NANA) PLAYING IN GOAL BECAUSE OF INJURIES TO OUR 2 RECOGNIZE KEEPERS BUT SHE SPUN ROUND AND CAUGHT BEFORE IT WENT OVER THE LINE

BOTH TEAMS WERE TRYING HARD TO PLAY FOOTBALL ON THIS PITCH BUT LOTS OF LITTLE MISTAKES BY BOTH SIDES AS THE MUD CLAIMED THE BALL

BEECHY WENT CLOSE ON 2 OCCASIONS BUT IT WAS REDDISH WHO MANAGED TO SCORE THE FIRST OF 2 GOALS BEFORE HALF TIME 2-0

BEECHY KICKED THE SECOND HALF OFF AND WITH THE WIND AT BACKS WENT ON THE ATTACK AND QUICKLY GOT THERE FIRST GOAL VIA STACY SHOOTING FROM OUTSIDE THE AREA AND THE KEEPER DIVING OVER THE TOP OF THE BALL AS IT SLOWLY ROLLED INTO THE GOAL. THIS SPURRED BEECHY ON AND SOON AFTER WERE AWARDED A PENALTY DEBBIE WHO HAD BEEN HAVING A LEAN TIME SCORING WISE GRABBED THE BALL PUT ON THE SPOT AND SHOT INTO THE LEFT CORNER OF THE GOAL LEAVING A DIVING KEEPER BEATEN 2-2

BOTH TEAMS WERE KEEN TO GET THE NEXT GOAL BUT AS THROUGHT OUT THE MATCH THE WIND AND RAIN WERE HAMPERING THERE ATTEMPTS

REDDISH 3RD GOAL WAS WORKED DOWN THE LEFT AND BEECHY APPEALING FOR OFFSIDE STOPPED BUT THE REF WAVED PLAY ON AS THE REDDISH PLAYER RAN 30 YARDS AND SHOT PASSED ELINA IN GOAL AS THE WHOLE OF BEECHY'S DEFENCE STOOD AND WATCHED.. THE OLD SAYING PLAY TO THE WHISTLE CETAINLY WENT OUT OF THE DOOR WITH THE BEECHY PLAYERS 3-2

THIS WAS THE KICK UP THE BACK SIDE BEECHY NEED AS THEY SET ABOUT GETTING THE NEXT GOAL AND WITH MINUTES TO GO AND DEBBIE CHASING A BALL DOWN THE LEFT CUT IN AND SENT IT FLYING INTO THE BOTTOM CORNER OF THE GOALS 3-3

THE FINAL WHISTLE CAME AND THE GAME ENDED 3-3 AND A LOT OF TIRED AND MUDDY PLAYERS FROM BOTH SIDES TROOPED OFF THE PITCH EVEN THE REF LOOKED HAPPY THE GAME WAS OVER

BEECHYS FANS DESERVE A MENTION FOR GETTING OUT OF THERE CARS AND STANDING ON THE SIDE WATCHING THE GAME
