Match Report

Match Report - 19 Sep 2009, Leeds Modernians Football Club 3rds beat Alwoodley OB III (District Cup 1st Rnd)

The match was very one sided, and although the last 3 goals came quite late in the game, the result was never really in doubt after the excellent Jake Williams latched onto a long through pass/punt, raced clear of the defence and coolly slotted home the first goal after 5 minutes. Further goals were added by Watson, Williams, Lewis and O'Reilly.

The real contest however was between Mullin and the notorious District Cup paperwork and there was only ever going to be one winner, and it wasn't Mullin. Gary Lovelace was left to pick up the bureaucratic pieces, which he did with his customary elan, although rumour has it it did drive a coach and horses through what was left of his weekend.

Highlights from the past match press conference;

"Although we scored 3/5 of our goals in the last 20 minutes, whilst playing some scintillating football after a turgid first hour, without the previously sporadicaly dangerous opposition getting into our half, I thought we struggled after I went off on 60 mins" (Mullin)

" I just feel I am at last starting to repay the club's faith in me, although 90 minutes still feels like a very long time to be continually upright", Matty (2 in 2) Lewis.

"I thought I did ok when I was on, its just that 20 seconds isn't long to make a real impression. I felt as if I had a bit more left to give. (Robbie 'ultimate cameo' Wood)
