Welshpool Fossils Retain Cup

Graeme Kirkham presents Ian Jacques with the Man of the Match Award

A good crowd turned up to watch the Tony Windsor Memorial Cup Final at the Venue, Oswestry.

The final pitted the reigning Champions, Welshpool Fossils and Whitchurch Alport.

The heat took it’s toll on both teams and the game was tighter than expected with Whitchurch nullifying the League’s top goal scorers. After a goalless first half Welshpool came out the stronger and took the lead through the explosive Mark Roberts. With only half an hour left, Whitchurch conceded a free kick 25 yards out and Chris Jew expertly bent the ball into the bottom corner.

The match finished 2-0. and the Man of the Match award was given to Welshpool’s midfielder, Ian Jacques.

The Shropshire Mid Wales Veterans League will start again on Friday the 30th of August. If you are interested in joining please contact Graeme Kirkham on graeme@gotothevenue.com
