Leading marksman Scott Joyce was the four goal star when Hayward Saturday League runners up Bournemouth Electric ran out convincing 6-0 winners against Camerons in the M.A. HART HAYWARD CUP FINAL at Hurn Bridge.    

Electric opened the scoring after just five minutes when Ryan Davies took advantage of a moment’s hesitation in the Camerons defence to race clear down the left and cross for SCOTT JOYCE to steer the ball past Heat Larton in the Camerons goal.

Electric ‘keeper Dan Sansom had to come out quickly when Camerons’ leading scorer Paul Brandreth was put through while, at the other end, Camerons defender Tyron Whenman was penalised for a challenge from behind on Scott Joyce in the 15th minute.    MAX CROW surprised everyone with accuracy of his free kick from all of 35 yards out, producing a stunning effort that rocketed into the Camerons net to double the Sparkies’ lead.

Electric got the ball to Teddy Hills in the Camerons penalty area in the 18th minute but Tyron Whenman was quickly in with a strong challenge to get the ball out for a throw in.

There was good work in attack by young Finley Minns as he tried to get Camerons on the front foot but back came Electric with Ryan Davies putting in a dangerous cross from the left in the 31st minute that found Scott Joyce but Electric’s ace marksman was quickly closed down by two defenders and his shot was blocked.

But, when Davies put another cross in from the left a minute later it was industrious midfielder TEDDY HILLS, up supporting his attackers, who was perfectly placed to fire it home.

Electric struck again in stoppage time at the end of the first half when SCOTT JOYCE turned cleverly on the ball inside the Camerons penalty area to creating the space he needed to slot it between the ‘keeper and the far post.

Chris Forbes came on for Camerons at the start of the second half and he was quickly in action, chasing a through ball down the left but Dan Sansom was alert to the danger and came a long way out of his goal to clear.

David Bratt was foiled on the edge of the penalty area by a one handed save by Dan Sansom and the Electric defence were able to clear.   The Electric ‘keeper was in action again in the 55th minute when he came off his line to collect a free kick under pressure.

Scott Joyce won the ball on the half way line and put Max Crow through but the Electric man was stopped by another good tackle from Camerons central defender Tyron Whenman.

Electric midfielder Mustapha Jagne was penalised for a foul on Dan Brennan outside the penalty area on the hour and Electric ‘keeper Dan Sansom was at full stretch to catch Kevin Brennan’s free kick under his crossbar after it took a deflection off the defensive wall.

Camerons never stopped trying to score a goal and Dan Sansom then showed great agility to come off his line and launch himself at a dangerous cross from the right by Camerons substitute Joe Sparks.   Once again the Electric ‘keeper’s handing was faultless.

Camerons had shown a lot more resilience in the second half and had managed to staunch the flow of goals from the formidable Electric attack until the closing stages when the Sparkies added two more.

Teddy Hills, who had put in an excellent shift in midfield for Electric, played an inch perfect ball through in the 85th minute for SCOTT JOYCE to run on and go round the ‘keeper before slotting it into the empty net to complete his hat-trick.

SCOTT JOYCE scored his fourth goal in stoppage time, running onto a long ball out of defence to lob it over the advancing goalkeeper.


Electric’s four goal star Scott Joyce was chosen for the man of the match award by Bournemouth 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.


Throop United : Steve Cannings, Kris Wilkins, Chris Elkins, Mark Wilkins, Dave Niven (Phil Budden 62 mins), Mark Jimmy, Michael Lathe (Matthew Davitt 87 mins), Alex Mason (Francisco Rodriguez 62 mins), Matthew Jerrard, John Bailey, Kieron Goldrick.

Boldre Royals : Bob Vine, Rob Black, Liam Black (Adam Nash 54 mins), Rob Crouch, Brandon Page, Dan Cooper, Alex Hilliard, Harry Yates, Alex Duval (George Snudden 45 mins), Josh Hambling, Jack Sexton (Shaun Baker 80 mins).
