Match Reports

Lyde Green Veterans Report;

"Lyde will of course feel unlucky to be out of the cup after having plenty of chances to win this one. Filton's keeper was in fantastic form making plenty of stops, in fact it took a spectacular overhead kick from Craig D to actually beat him! Lyde pressed for more after going a goal up but missing a few key men, just couldn't get the 2nd goal which would probably have ended the contest. Filton plugged away and stayed in it and equalized late on with a good finish. Lyde will definitely learn from this game and come again. Filton were far superior when it came to spot kicks! We look forward to meeting in the league and wish them all the best in the next round."

Filton high Vets Report:

" Filton win 4-3 On penalties, Filton arrived with a solid back five after being all too aware that Lyde green had belted nearly 30 goals in only 3 games. Lyde green took an early lead, but Filton kept their chins up and kept the score at 1, Filton caught a break mid way second half with some route one stuff, and striker Steve managed to lob the stranded keeper. Some cracking sportsmanship from lyde green who returned the ball to filton after disagreeing with the refs decision to award them a free kick on the edge of the box."
