4th May 2004 - U9 Final

  • Hadley Rangers 1 - 0 NWR (aet)

    Nascotwood Rangers narrowly lost the Challenge Cup Final to a very strong Hadley team 1 - 0 after extra time. The goal, which was an unstoppable deflection, came in the last minute. However, Nascotwood were really unlucky not to have scored, and in fact both goalkeeper had to bring out the best of their abilities to keep the opposition from scoring. Nascotwood showed character and resilience, battling to the last. Well done guys, you are all a credit to the club. (Graham Willerton)

Under 14's Watford Quarters

  • The Under 14's went out of the Watford Half Time Penalty Shoot Quarter Finals 4-3 to Chorleywood. Robert West's first hit the bar and bounced agonizingly close to the line. Sam Colbeck struck neatly. Tony Delaney calmly stoked home into the corner. Phil Thomas then went painfully close (some say aiming for his Mum in the crowd)! Then Alex Johnson struck the final goal. Martin Richardson in goal made one stunning save but was powerless with the remaining 4, all of which were struck well. Unlucky lads, well done to all the supporters who came down to cheer them on. Thanks.
