Bournemouth Manor A’s hopes of retaining the M.A.HART HAYWARD CUP were dashed when Talbot Rise United emerged 4-2 winners from Tuesday night’s McDonalds sponsored Final at Hurn Bridge thanks to a hat-trick from skipper Sean Vincent Eaton and a stunning long range effort from Dan Thomas.
The Cup holders made all the early running with Ryan Davies having a low shot turned round the post by Terry Bridgwater and the Talbot Rise ‘keeper then did well to claw a corner to the far post by Ben Cole away and Manor’s block the follow up shot with his legs.
Ryan Davies got behind the Rise defence to drive a dangerous ball across the penalty area as Manor continued to press but Talbot Rise surprised them by opening the scoring from their first attack, a corner from the right being driven in by Talbot Rise skipper Sean Vincent Eaton in the 5th minute.
Talbot score first
Manor responded with a Greg Cooper free kick from 30 yards which went over the bar and there were alarm bells ringing in the Rise defence when Bridgwater lost control of the ball in his penalty area, giving Harry Sandiford the chance to get in a shot which was blocked by a defender.
Rise doubled their lead in the 14th minute with stunning strike, Dan Thomas’ free kick from near the centre circle flying over Manor ‘keeper Robert Parkin and dipping under the crossbar ( Pic Below)
Bridgwater saved a low effort from Davies at the second attempt before Manor halved the deficit in the 22nd minute when a cross from the left was deflected into his own goal by Talbot Rise defender Thomas Mallett.
Manor attacked down the right and the ball was cut back for Harry Sandiford to curl a shot just over the bar before Manor equalised in the 36th minute. Rise goalkeeper came out to a ball played across the goalmouth, bowling Ryan Davies over in the process. Davies picked himself up off the floor to convert the resultant penalty kick.
Manor got the ball forward to substitute Matt Bright in the 56th minute but his shot went wide of the far post then Louis Parkin was put through but Bridgwater was quickly off his line to get the ball away.
Rise were reduced to ten men in 70th minute when Thomas Mallett saw red for hauling back Ben Cole just outside the penalty area. Cole drilled the free kick through wall and Bridgwater was unable to hold it. A posse of Manor players pounced on the rebound and the ball ended up in the back of the net but linesman’s flag was up for offside.
Manor lost Louis Parkin after he received a second yellow card two minutes later and, from resultant free kick from the half way line by Dan Thomas, Sean Vincent Eaton was able to put Rise back in front with a header.
Rise substitute Tylor Burgis skilfully beat a defender four minutes from time and drove an inviting ball across the Manor goalmouth where it took a deflection before going behind for a corner.
Greg Cooper became the second Manor player to see red two minutes from time after making comments to the linesman before Sean Vincent Eaton completed his hat-trick in the 90th minute when he headed home a corner from the left.
Talbot Rise skipper Sean Vincent Eaton was chosen for the Man of the Match award by BHFL President Mike Fowler.




M.A.HART HAYWARD CUP FINAL Sponsored by McDonalds

Tuesday 18th April 2017 at Hurn Bridge



A solitary Lucas Walker strike midway through the first half gave Bournemouth Manor “A” the verdict 1-0 against Hayward Saturday League Division Three championship rivals Redlynch & Woodfalls United Reserves in Tuesday night’s M.A.Hart Hayward Cup Final at Hurn Bridge.

The champions were second best to their nearest rivals on this occasion and, but for some excellent saves from Redlynch goalkeeper Lloyd Barr, Manor could have had the game sewn up by half time.

Redlynch were under pressure in the opening minute of the game with a free kick rebounding from their crossbar to Kyle John-Clement whose shot was blocked by Barr and the follow up effort from Matt Bright was scrambled away by the Redlynch defence.

Redlynch responded in the 14th minute with a 40 yard free kick from Sean Dempsey which struck the Manor crossbar before going behind for a goal kick.

Manor scored what was to be the only goal of the game after 23 minutes when a goal kick from goalkeeper Jack Summers was headed on by Kyle John–Clement to Lucas Walker. There was an exchange of passes between the Manor centre forward and Ben Cole with Walker chesting down the return ball on the edge of the Redlynch penalty area before steering it past the advancing goalkeeper.

At the other end, Simon Dreyer fired a 20 yard shot wide of the far post and the Redlynch centre forward then took a tumble in the area but referee Dean Miller dismissed United’s appeals for a penalty.

Walker burst through again in 34th minute but Redlynch ‘keeper Lloyd Barr came out bravely at the centre forward’s feet to get the ball away with his legs.

The ball fell to Walker on the edge of the box five minutes later but Barr denied him again and there was an even more impressive save from the Redlynch custodian in the 42nd minute as his duel with the Manor striker continued. Walker latched onto the ball just outside the Redlynch penalty area to hammer it goalwards but Barr was equal to it, diving to push the ball away for a corner. The resultant corner resulted in an indirect free kick being awarded against United’s Andrew Tinkler whose foot was high. Walker rolled the free kick back to Mark Adams whose shot was blocked by the wall of defenders on the Redlynch goal line.

Barr raced out to the edge of his penalty area to deny Matt Bright when he was put through at the start of the second half. Dreyer attempted a couple of long range efforts for Redlynch, the first going over the bar and the second, a low shot in the 70th minute bringing a comfortable save from Manor ‘keeper Jack Summers

Manor’s Ben Cole fired over bar from distance in the 77th minute and his next effort from the edge of the box two minutes later was goal bound until it cannoned off Redlynch defender Anthony Rochester for a corner. The resultant corner was bundled over the Redlynch goal line but Manor’s celebrations were short lived as the goal was disallowed for a foul on the goalkeeper.

There were efforts from Jimmy Greenough, Michael Ball, and Sean Dempsey in the closing stages but nothing to seriously trouble Summers in the Manor goal.

Redlynch goalkeeper Lloyd Barr ( Inset Left) was chosen for the Man of the Match award by Hayward League President Mike Fowler.

M. A. Hart Hayward Cup Final 2016



Sponsored by MacDonalds Thursday 12th March 2015 at M. A. Hart Stadium, Hurn Bridge



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.
