F.A. SUNDAY CUP QUARTER FINAL - SUNDAY 17th FEBRUARY 2019
East Christchurch SSC’s magnificent F.A. SUNDAY CUP adventure ended in a 2-0 fifth round defeat against Birstall Stamford at Hurn Bridge. There were chances at both ends in the nervy early minutes and the visitors from Leicester had a good opportunity midway through the first half when, through with only Marc Davies to beat, Paul Pallett fired wide. East Christchurch responded on the half hour with Dave Midgley meeting Jack Smith’s cross from the left with a diving header which brought a good save from Birstall ‘keeper Elliott Shiliam. The first half came to a close with Pallett firing wide of Marc Davies’ far post from the edge of the box. The visitors were in front just three minutes after the interval when Pallett laid the ball off for Ryan Seal to slot it home. East Christchurch fought back and Shilliam had to get down quickly to save a 30 yard effort from Jonny King on the hour. The Birtstall ‘keeper then did well to adjust when Matt Piovan’s strike from the edge of the penalty area was deflected by Dave Midgley. Birtsall were fortunate to escape in the 74th minute when Alex Whitehouse set up a chance for Midgley but, with the visitors’ ‘keeper desperately trying to close him down, the East Christchurch striker put the ball over the bar. Birstall clinched their place in the semi final four minutes from time when Paul Pallott met a cross from the left with an unorthodox overhead kick which surprised everyone and found it’s way just inside the far post.
