Minster Lovell Reserves 2 v 0 FC Chequers Reserves

A mixture of youth and experience lead Cody Davies's Minster Lovell Reserve side to a 2-0 win against FC Chequers Reserves in the Jack Busby Cup.

A 5 minute spell in the first half gave Minster a 2-goals lead.

The opener was a mazy run by Mykel Ryan who skipped past several Chequers players to slot a left footed shot past keeper, Dan cox.

Minutes later Stephen Burke made a surging run through the Chequers defence, only to be brought down and a penalty awarded . Minster veteran John Forteath stepped up to calmly put the ball to the left of Cox into the back of net.

Chequers then applied pressure to the Misnter goal but keeper Ben Newer made some good saves to deny them. They came closest when a cross nearly put in by Zack Cain.

Chequers came out into second half with the belief to get back into the game but few chances were created from the oncoming pressure and the Minster defence lead by the Bennett father son partnership stood up to this . Chances were created at the Chequers end but neither Burke nor Davies could put them away.

There were no further goals and Minster won 2-0. Youthful Minster manager Cody Davies and captain Adam Bennett were presented the trophy by league secretary Sue Andrews.

Cody being officially the youngest manager to win a trophy in WDFA history. All attendees enjoyed the game.

Minster manager Cody dedicated their victory to the memory of friend Aarron Waller who was sadly killed in an accident 18 months ago. Aaron himself, played for Chequers and was close friends with the Minster players.
