Leckhampton Rovers Seniors narrowly miss out on County Cup

Tuesday 3rd May saw the final appearance of a Leckhampon team in a final. Leckhampton Rovers Seniors playng Lakeside for the Country Cup.

Leckhampton went 1-0 down early in the first half, Lakeside winning a lot of second ball in midfield. In a game high on physical challenge a mistake saw Lakeside go further ahead scoring a second to leave it at 2-0 at half time. 

Leckhampton came into the game more in the second half, whatever Enzo said at half time obviously having an effect. For the better play a goal was not forthcoming. Lakeside then scored a third to make it 3-0 seemingly putting the game out of sight.

Then with Lakeside having used all their subs one of their players picked up an injury meaning they went down to 10 men. Leckhampton scored soon after and then, increasing the pressure won a penalty that was converted. 3-2. 

The ref blew the final whistle shortly after the penalty, Leckhampton had just run out of time.
