Mon 9 Jul 19:30 - Lincolnshire Senior Cup 18-19 Attendance 221

Stamford secured their first win of the season in the Lincolnshire County Cup.

Stamford progressed in the County cup to set up a tie with Gainsborough Trinity in the next round.

Five minutes into the game and Stamford had their first chance as Stan Mugisha received the before turning but he could only shoot wide. Grantham had their first chance of the game five minutes later as Tom Garrick shot well wide. 15 minutes into the game Stamford had the first goal of the game. Rob Morgan crossed following some strong work down the left allowing Taron Hare to head in unmarked at the back post. Two minutes later Grantham had a good chance, following a one-two between Micheal Hollingsworth and Tom Garrick, but some strong defending from Jake Duffy prevented a shot on goal.
Later in the half Liam Adams had two good chances; the first cutting in from the wing and the second following a good ball through by Liam Adams but both chances went just wide. Five minutes later Stamford had a second as Taron Hare headed across goal with the ball falling to Eliot Putman whose shot was deflected in by Ryley Thompson. Grantham then had two great chance to get back into the game but a great goal line clearance by Jordan Cooke and a save by Danny Haystead kept the score at 2-0. The last chance of the half fell to Stamford as Stan Mugisha ran down the wing who crossed to Liam Adams, who had his shot blocked before Rob Morgan had his shot saved.
Two minutes after the break Stamford had their third as Michael Hollingsworth turned the ball into his own net as a Jake Duffy corner was flicked on by Stan Mugisha. Twenty minutes later and another Jake Duffy corner led to another Stamford goal this time with a good header from Jon Challinor. Stamford had another good chance on the 70th minute with Stan Mugisha playing a clever flicked pass through to Reece Morris whose lobbed shot was well saved. The final chance of the game fell to Grantham and saw them get a consolation goal. A throw-in from the left led to a defensive error which saw George Couzens pounce and finish well.
On the game manager Graham Drury commented that he was ‘pleased with the way we are moving the ball and the workrate of the team’ following on to say that ‘the new boys have gelled well’ but went on to emphasise that ‘we have a lot of work still to do, small steps to get ready for the 18th of August’ when the season begins.
