Bournemouth Manor lifted the M.A. Hart Poole Bay Challenge Cup for the third time in four years when they emerged 2-0 winners against current Hayward Saturday Premier Division leaders Bournemouth Electric in Thursday night’s final at Hurn Bridge.

Manor were quickly into their stride with Dave Saunders putting Jamie Morgan through on the right in the 2nd minute. Although Electric ‘keeper Matt Cleere came off his line to close him down, Morgan managed to get the ball to Shane Barney whose shot was cleared off the line by Electric defender Ash Nippard.

Jamie Morgan then crossed for Shane Barney to steer a header past Matt Cleere and into the Electric net but the flag was up for offside.

Terry Foote latched onto a wayward pass in the 8th minute to fire an 18 yard effort over the bar and another stray pass four minutes later let Shane Barney in and, as Matt Cleere came out to narrow the angle, Barney put his shot past the Electric ‘keeper and just wide of the far post.

Electric broke away in the 16th minute with Lewis Sainval accelerating past Dan Pidgley but Manor goalkeeper Jack Robinson came out well to save at his feet.

Terry Foote then put Jamie Morgan away down the right in the 20th minutes but Matt Cleere managed to get the ball behind for a corner with his legs.

Jamie Morgan delivered a succession of dangerous balls in the Electric penalty area which resulted in headers from Shane Barney and Terry Foote going close then, after Robbie Harber bowled Sam Purdy over just outside the penalty area in the 27th minute, Morgan’s 25 yard free kick only just dipped over the bar.

Manor’s relentless pressure paid off on the half hour when Terry Foote played ball out to Jamie Morgan on the right and he cut inside to drill the ball past Matt Cleere and into the far corner of the net.

Electric conceded again seven minutes later Sammy Davis played a neat ball through to Jamie Morgan who was brought down in the penalty area and Manor skipper Darren Spiers tucked the resultant spot kick neatly inside the post.

Sam Purdy’s cross from the left was headed against the bar by Terry Foote in the 39th minute and, as the first half came to a close, Foote was denied by brave save from Matt Cleere. The rebound went to Shane Barney whose shot was cleared off the line by Ash Williams.

Electric came into the game more after the break and they mounted a promising attack in the 50th minute after a great ball by Robbie Harber put Joe May away down the left but Jack Kinge-Phillips, coming in at the far post, was not quite able to get to the cross.

Dave Saunders won possession in 52nd minute and got ball to Barney who played Purdy in resulting in a shot whistling over the bar while, at the other end, Darren Spiers cleverly eased Lewis Sainval off the ball as Electric countered.

A defensive slip in the 57th minute let Electric’s Dean Seal in but Jack Robertson was off his line quickly to claim the ball.

Dean Seal played a great ball up in the 72nd minute to Ian Musselwhite who was brought down just outside the penalty area by Martin Sault.   Jack Kinge-Phillips swung the 25 yard free kick towards the top corner but Jack Robertson managed to get across to make a great one handed save.

Shane Barney was the four goal star when Bournemouth Manor retained the M.A.Hart Poole Bay Challenge Cup by overwhelming Sway Reserves 9-0 in Thursday night’s final at Hurn Bridge.

First Division Sway had despatched three Premier Division sides, Alderholt, Hamworthy Recreation, and Parley Sports, en route to the final. Their hopes of adding Manor to their list of conquests were dashed however when the reigning Premier Division champions rattled in four goals in a twelve minute spell before the interval.

Manor dominated proceedings from the start with Terry Foote testing Sway ‘keeper Rob Old with a speculative lob from distance and, following a corner kick, skipper Darren Spiers drove a shot from the edge of the box just over rhe bar.

Manor opened the scoring in the 11th minute when Sam Purdy was put through on the right and his cross to the feet of Shane Barney was swept into the roof of the net by the Manor hit man.

A long range effort from Sway’s Jack Herbert in the 17th minute had Manor ‘keeper Steve Marais diving full length to push it away but it was ony a matter of time before Manor increased their lead which they did on the half hour.

Terry Foote played the ball across to Shane Barney who steered it into the corner of the net and Barney completed his hat-trick four minutes later when he latched onto Mickey Finch’s through ball, rounded the ‘keeper, and slotted it into the empty net.

Mickey Finch then got in on the act himself in the 39th minute, cutting in from the left to drill a low shot inside the near post and a trademark 35 yard free kick from the Manor wing wizard zipped into roof of Sway net three minutes later to give them a commanding five goal half time lead.

Sway began the second half in a much more determined fashion with goal attempts from Tom Linbourn and Jack Herbert.

Steve Marais raced out of his penalty area in the 49th minute to deny Dan Marks and the Manor ‘keeper had to produce an excellent diving save to keep out Chris Forbes’ near post header from a corner.

Sway contimued to press and Marais punched corner away in 68th minute and ball came to Boyt at the edge of the box who fired over the bar.

Back came Manor with Barney’s 70th minute shot deflected just wide for a corner from which Adam Janes went close at the far post.

Sway ‘keeper Rob Old was twice called upon to dive bravely at the feet of Barney while, at the other end, Sway’s best chance of the match came in the 85th minute with Bill Stride just unable to reach a low cross as he came sliding in at the far post.

Shane Barney scored his fourth goal of the game a minute later, heading over the ‘keeper from close range and a demoralised Sway then capitulated, conceding three more goals in the three added minutes at the end of the game.

Luke Scrimshaw converted Brad Aspin’s cross from the right, immediately followed 45 seconds later by Aspin himself weaving his way through the middle to smash home Manor’s eight goal.

Lewis Burgis then rounded off the scoring when he was played in to lash home Manor’s ninth goal.

Manor’s four goal star Shane Barney was chosen for the Man of the Match award by Hayward League President Mike Fowler.

Steve Flynn and James Pinder both grabbed hat-tricks when Hayward Sunday Premier Division champions Bournemouth Electric ran riot 7-1 against Bournemouth Manor in Thursday night’s M.A.HART POOLE BAY CHALLENGE CUP FINAL at Hurn Bridge.

Manor had their fair share of the chances in the early stages but it was Electric who opened the scoring after 22 minutes when Luke McCoy played an excellent ball up to Steve Flynn whose cross was lashed home by James Pinder.

Steve Flynn doubled Electric’s lead in the 29th minutes, going past two players before firing one in from the edge of the box, and he added another just a minutes later, latching onto a clearance by Manor goalkeeper Liam Roberts and slotting it past covering defender Fred Dennard.

Electric live wire Luke McCoy was sent tumbling in the penalty area by Fred Dennard in the 37th minute and Flynn stepped up to complete his hat-trick with the resultant spot kick.

Manor pulled one back a minute into stoppage time at the end of the first half when a mistimed challenge by Luke Miles resulted in a penalty which was drilled home by Darren Millar.

Electric’s four goal advantage was restored seven minutes into the second half when Luke McCoy curled the ball neatly beyond Manor goalkeeper Liam Roberts.

Manor’s claims for a second penalty when Jesse Hodgson went down under a challenge from Electric ‘keeper Hamed Faal were to no avail in the 68th minute and play immediately switched to the other end where Tim Constable put James Pinder through for his second goal of the game.

Pinder completed his hat-trick in the 78th minute after Constable and Flynn combined well to create the opening.

Electric’s Steve Flynn was chosen for the Man of the Match award by BFA President Mike Fowler.
