Bryco League Cup Final
Wheatsheaf Park (Staines Town FC)
Thursday 28th April 2005
The Report
Slough won an entertaining final 3-1 to lift the Bryco Cup. I have no idea what the Hampton side was as, despite the advertising and programme saying 7.45, the match kicked off at 7.30. Probably two thirds of the crowd were Slough supporters.

Playing a 3-4-3 system with Hodges back up front, the team battled hard in both halves to end up worthy winners.

Hampton were first to go close in the 9th minute, and Hampton showed more brightly in the early exchanges, in which both sides tended to route 1. Parkin made a good save after 12 minutes. Slough started to get into the game after 20 minutes and the match was entertaining to both sets of fans, with a more even end to end game developing.

After 22 mins, Carbon crossed from the wing, a swirling high cross over the keeper into the top of the net. Well worth seeing on video.

Both sides then played with more width, taking turns to apply pressure. After 41, Hampton equalised with a shot that either deceived Parkin or took a deflection, as he dived away from the shot. Soon after the Hampton No 3 got himself sent off for throwing the ball at Hodges while Hodges was on the ground. Many handbags ensued, and Carbon was also booked.

Hampton again started the 2nd half brightly, but gradually Slough exerted pressure, often switching wings to try to exploit the extra man. Slough had the better chances and more pressure, but apart from Hodges hitting the post, the pressure counted for little. Hampton still looked dangerous on the counter attack.

After 74 the deadlock was broken in Slough's favour, with Hodges, back where he is most influential, controlling and knocking in a Carbon cross.

Smurf 2 had a goal disallowed as Hampton's search for an equaliser, left them exposed at the back on a number of occasions. In the 91st the chase left Hampton exposed as Hodges intercepted a pass by the Hampton keeper, rounded him to make the score 3-1 and safe. To add insult to injury, Hodges very nearly made it a hat trick.

Great stuff, and rapturous applause from a happy Slough crowd, who have had to watch some disappointing games recently. Tonight, those disappointments were forgotten.
