10-1 Keith Radford Trophy final win seals league and cup for the vets
AFC Kirk Hallam vets made club history in their first season after a stunning 10-1 victory over Eastwood Community FC vets in the Keith Radford trophy final.
Having performed poorly in the semi final against Kimberley Miners Welfare, the vets wanted to put in a decent performance to make amends. After five minutes, the match showed pretty much how the next seventy five would be after Ian Trueman headed Kirk Hallam in front following a great cross from the left. Kirk Hallam the dominated from start to finish. Scott Morris doubled the lead on 25 with a cool left footed finish. Skipper, Nick Ghislanzoni made it 3-0 with a pinpoint freekick into the top right corner from 30 yards. Marek Smith made it 4-0 before half time with a cool finish after being sent clear.
The second half continued where the first left off as Kev Banwell made it 5-0 early on. Paul Scattergood then made it 6-0, finishing after some great build up play. He then doubled his tally minutes later to make it 7. Eastwood then managed to bag a consolation after a silly foul led to a free kick which went through the wall, to be finished off by the Eastwood forward. Paul Scattergood then struck again for his hat trick, closely followed by a second for Marek Smith, and Kev Banwell made it 10-1 with his second of the game just before full time.
A stunning performance to round off a stunning first season for the vets. One match left to go against Holbrook at the Stute on Wednesday 23rd of May.
Presentation night is at the Stute on June 16th.
