M.A. HART HAYWARD CUP FINAL                       Thursday 9th Mach 2020

BISTERNE UNITED       1       RINGWOOD UNITED           0


Charlie King’s 11th minute strike gave Bisterne United the verdict 1-0 against local rivals Ringwood United in a very entertaining and closely contested M.A. HART HAYWARD CUP FINAL on Thursday night at Hurn Bridge.

The Bisterne left winger latched onto the ball to the left of the Ringwood penalty area and cut inside to drive it between Ringwood goalkeeper Adam Morgan and the far post.    

Ringwood responded with a 30 yard effort from Florin Iliescu which brought a good save from Zac Chilman and the Bisterne ‘keeper was soon in action again, diving full length to turn Matt Nabney’s 15 yard strike round the post for a corner.

Ringwood threatened again in the 18th minute when a long ball out of defence put Iliescu clear behind the Bisterne back line.   With Chilman advancing to narrow the angle, Iliescu clipped a 30 yard effort past him that went agonisingly wide of the far post.

Charlie King raced away down the left and put a dangerous cross into the Ringwood penalty area but Ringwood left back Lee Taylor was perfectly positioned to make a vital clearance.

Back came Ringwood with Sam Birt blasting a 25 yard shot only just wide of the Bisterne goal while, at the other end, the lively Charlie King broke away down the left again and Ringwood were once more grateful to Lee Taylor for snuffing out the danger with a timely clearance.

Taylor was then involved in midfield, combining well with Iliescu who finished the move by firing a 25 yard strike wide of the goal.

Bisterne had a lucky escape in the 37th minute when Sam Birt let fly from 25 yards and the ball sailed past Chilman and thudded against the crossbar.   The Bisterne stopper then had to be out quickly to deny Iliescu.

Charlie King had the Ringwood defence under pressure dealing with another dangerous cross from the left and, a minute before the interval, he was tormenting them again.     On this occasion the Bisterne winger was sent tumbling by the combined efforts of Paul Jordan and skipper Lee Bellows and a penalty was awarded.

King got up to take the spot kick himself but Ringwood ‘keeper Adam Morgan made an excellent save, diving full length to get the ball round the post for a corner.

King had another opportunity three minutes into the second half when the ball came to him at the far post but he couldn’t get enough on it and Morgan was able to come out and smother the ball.

The second half lacked the intensity of the opening 45 minutes but there was a great passage of play in the 57th minute with Taylor’s free kick headed goalwards by Iliescu and Chilman had to produce an excellent reflex save to get the ball up and over the bar.

Ringwood’s Hugh Clark was put through down the left in the 65th minute but his shot was comfortably taken by the diving Chilman.

King was in action again in the 70th minute, racing down the left to get in an effort which went just wide of the near post.

Ringwood continued to press for an equaliser but resolute defending by the Bisterne rearguard denied them any opportunities to get on terms.

Bisterne United’s Charlie King was chosen for the Man of the match award by Hayward League President Mike Fowler.

Thursday 12th March 2015 at M. A. Hart Stadium, Hurn Bridge     THROOP UNITED 3 BOLDRE ROYALS 1


Hayward Saturday Division Four promotion contenders Throop United emerged 3-1 winners from Thursday night’s McDonalds sponsored M. A. Hart Hayward Cup Final against Division Five champions Boldre Royals at the M.A.Hart Stadium, Hurn Bridge.

Throop opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Kieron Goldrick fired the ball into the net from ten yards out but Boldre equalised after 25 minutes when United cleared the ball to the edge of their penalty area where Josh Hambling was on hand to volley it through a crowd of players and into the roof of the net.

Alarm bells were ringing in the Royals defence on the half hour when John Bailey weaved his way through to whip a shot across the face of the goal and narrowly wide of the far post.

Bailey was Boldre’s tormentor again a minute before the interval when he was felled in the box by Liam Black and he took the resultant spot kick himself, drilling the ball clinically into the bottom corner of the net.

There was concern for Alex Hilliard early in the second half when he was poleaxed after a collision with United ‘keeper Steve Cannings but thankfully the Royals striker was eventually able to resume after treatment. Then Boldre lost the services of defender Liam Blake who sustained a shoulder injury which resulted in him having to be taken to hospital.

Royals had a golden opportunity to get on terms in the 58th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Alex Hilliard was brought down by Mark Wilkins. Unfortunately for Boldre, George Snudden’s spot kick was parried by goalkeeper Steve Cannings and the Royals substitute was unable to convert the rebound.

Harry Yates let fly with a fierce low shot from outside the penalty area that brought a superb diving save from Cannings in the 70th minute.

Royals goalkeeper Bob Vine had kept his team in the game with some excellent work between the post but he was beaten again in the 77th minute when Michael Lathe polished off Royals by slotting home United’s third goal.

Boldre Royals goalkeeper Bob Vine was chosen for the Man of the Match award by BDFA President Mike Fowler.
