Not a great deal to say about this fixture. With an important cup final two days later and with so many injuries and absentees, the decision was taken to start with the reserve team and only two players that were to start in the final on Monday. With so many players out I could not take the risk and try to chase this fixture and the cup, and as we are doing nothing in the league this season (again!) the decision was to call in the reserves as their fixture had been cancelled. Many thanks to the reserves for helping me out; winning cups is sometimes not just a team or a squad thing, but a club thing and the reserves certainly played their part. Thank you to you all.
The team huffed and puffed and did miss a number of chances to go ahead and also a sitter from a yard out which would have seen the sides go level. However, the pace and movement of the lively forwards were a bit too much for us and Meridian ran out deserved winners.
