Not a bad month

By Mark Wilkins

Both the Vets and the Reserves collect silverware in April, with a County Cup and League title respectively.

It was the Vets team that brought home the first of the silverware when the won the Oxfordshire FA Veterans Cup, after a 3-2 win against Watlington Town Vets at Oxford City. They started the much brighter team in the first half and soon took an early lead and for the most part were the more dominant team, they extended the lead even further with two early goals in the second half. Then on the hour Watlington started to get back into the game, they got one back and then with 10 mins to go they got a second to make it 3-2. It was a nervous finish to the game for Saints but they held on for the win to become County Cup winners for 2018/19.
Then on Tuesday night it was the turn of the Reserves who only needed a point to confirm them as Division 2 winners. Horspath Res were the visitors and after a nervy start Jae Sharkey settled the nerves when he tucked away the opening goal, this was quickly followed by two more for Sharkey to net himself a birthday hat trick. Jacob Mulvany received a broken nose after being head butted by an opponent, for which the player was sent off. Horspath hit back with two goals of their own but cold not find an equaliser. The result capped off a fantastic season for the Reserves that only see them lose 2 games all season.
Focus now turns to the Presidents and Clarendon Cup Finals on May 4th at North Leigh,when both the First and Reserve teams will be looking to add to this seasons honours.
