Heartbreak for Woolwich 90 in London Sunday Junior Cup

Woolwich 90 1 Greenhouse London 2

In sunny conditions on an amazing pitch Woolwich 90 got off to an absolute flier with a goal after 33 seconds by Danny Edwards.

The game then swung from end to end, with Woolwich 90 going close a couple of times through Renato Marinalli and Danny Edwards while Luv Kapoor tackled anything that moved in midfield and Nick Jackson and Tom Shiel defended like Trojans. David Espanosa's pull back on Zak Henry after 21 minutes threatened to make things boil over but the yellow cards for each player were the only ones of the match.

The second half was much more Greenhouse attacking, but they just could not find a way through the defence, and when they did a stunning point black Tom Fisher save from an attacking header surely must have made Greenhouse start thinking it wasn't going to be their day. With time running out and Greenhouse throwing the kitchen sink at Woolwich 90 balls were coming in from all angles and a cross into the box was met by the head of the superb Nick Jackson whose header lofted over the despairing dive of Tom Fisher to level the scores with just 30 seconds remaining. The 4th official held up 4 minutes of time added on and it was then to see if Woolwich 90 could recompose themselves against the Metropolitan Sunday League Premier Division opponents who smelled blood. With the clock ticking down up step Greenhouse substitute Germain Jeanboel to break Woolwich hearts in the 94th minute to win the cup for Greenhouse.

Woolwich 90 were superb representatives for WESFA throughout the day, with the league also being represented at the final by Assistant Referee Notis Liappis and 4th Official Dave Hooker.

Congratulations to Greenhouse Sports from all at the Woolwich & Eltham Sunday Football Alliance.
