U11 United - Autumn Gold Trophy Winners

The 2018 Autumn Shield final had been a moment of real pride for the team yet we fell at the final hurdle as penalty defeat saw us lose out to Hamsey Rangers.

One year on, we took to the field at the venue of our greatest humiliation against what looked like a very good Coney Hall team for the Gold Trophy final and hopefully redemption following last season’s final.  The previous week we had handily dispatched with Hamsey Rangers in a ladder match. Was that a sign? You’re damn right it was!  After the formalities that a final brings with it, we were off to a flyer as Reece Beard poked home after two bites at the cherry. However, within a matter of minutes the scores were level as Paolo Helden had a rush of blood and (according to his dad) “threw one in his own net”. Very unlike Paolo as he had been so reliable till that moment. The goal really knocked us out of our stride, and it was only with the last touch of the first half when Ahmed Kassem’s superb header looped in that we seemed to regain our focus.  The game was all but up inside a minute of the restart as some 'Total Football' led to Cameron Anderson-Green putting the icing on the game. Ahmed added another before Coney pulled one back to make for a slightly more nervous last 10. Truth was though that we never looked like losing that game. Every player put a real shift in and our superior work rate and quality in possession was always too much for the opposition. Personally, it was an enormously proud moment for me. As I said at the time, I’m delighted that the boys can pin such a massive positive like winning a tournament on to our hard work and should rightly cherish those memories forever.
