Report: 17-10-2010 – Mens 1st’s (4) vs. (2) Chapeltown 2nd’s (CUP)

Slazengers mens first team hosted Chapeltown 2’s in the cup on Sunday and came away with a deserved 4-2 win. Due to injury, Chapeltown only had 10 players and Slazengers played a sensible passing game utilising the extra space available. Chapeltown did manage to take the lead off a short corner but this was short lived when soon after Ben Graham picked up a great ball from Phil Midgley and squared for John Sykes to finish easily.Into the second half, Slazengers continued to play a good passing game and it was the same combination that brought Slazengers second, Graham again crossing for Sykes to convert. As the game progressed, Slazengers always looked the stronger side and increased their lead when Graham converted after capitilising on a defensive error and soon scored their fourth when Midgley broke from defence to convert the simplest of tap ins.

Chapeltown did manage to grab a late consolation but it is Slazengers who will progress into the next round.
