A tough cup match today against a higher division team, not helped by the rainy conditions and a very slippery ball. Ash attacked well and played better than they had done in the 2 previous weeks, however the opposition were also strong in attack and out-witted our defence on a number of occasions. There were strong performances from Tom Quick and Steve Birch in mid-field, with some great teamwork and passing to create attacking opportunities. Well done to Jak for player of the match, returning from injury and giving 100% throughout the game. Unfortunately we're out of the league cup, but as a team we can now concentrate on our league games and hopefully consolidate our position at the top of the division.
Final score: Ash Utd 5 - 7 Manor Colts Lightning
