In the second half and up the slope Falcons played the better football and Hayden Wilson hooked a loose ball into the net putting us into the lead. However, a penalty awarded shortly after lead to a nail biting finish and extra time. It was in the first ten minutes that Swede latched onto a through ball, rounded the keeper and swept home. It was all Falcons from then on as the rossoceleste bossed the game until the final whistle. The Redcar coach came over to congratulate the team on their worthy win.
The togetherness and team spirit really was something else. We had four subs on the day and ringing regular changes kept fresh legs on the pitch. In the dying moments the four guys on the line who had put in a full shift already were chomping at the bit to go back on.
