Windsor Gardens 5 Le Glamour 1 (Greenacres Reserve 19/9/2015):
The final round of the Collegiate Soccer Season saw the unofficial league champions travel to Greenacres to take on the newly crowned League Champions Windsor Gardens.
With second spot safely tucked away Le Glamour had little to play for or did they. ‘Hot Fuzz’ dangled the carrot to the boys in White ‘Turn a very good season into a great one. Become the first team to beat Windsor.’
With defensive stalwart and assistant coach Jack O Stevens finally broken after a stellar season, Kevin Bock returned to the starting XI to partner one half of the Smith Brothers at centre back. That was the only change to what has become a regular settled side this season.
At least six fans had made the long trip (Smith family from Kuala Lumpa) to watch Le Glamour. With eskies in tow and clear blue skies the day almost had a carnival feel to it. Bill Hill even broke the conditions of his football banning order to put in an appearance.
The first twenty minutes of the game saw Le Glamour in the ascendency. ‘Hot Fuzz’ had outlined a game plan and the boys stuck to it well. Possession of the ball was key, as was movement and discipline. The ball was knocked around the Reserve with confidence and both wide players were posing problems for the Windsor full backs.
Chances were fashioned but often ended up just wide of the target or over the bar. Finally Le Glamour found their range and accuracy. Sadly they also found a keeper in top form as save after save was pulled off to keep the score at 0 – 0.
Then came the sucker punch. Windsor broke from the back and tore Le Glamour to pieces to grab the opening goal of the game. 1 – 0 and not really deserved.
