LADS CLUB WIN THROUGH TO THE FINAL OF THE COUNTY CUP
Westfields and Lads Club served up a pulsating semi-final tie in a wind-swept rain-driven match at allpay.park on Wednesday when West Midland League Division One league leaders Lads Club won through on a penalty shoot-out after the 2 teams had been held in a 1-1 draw after extra time.
Lads Club took the lead early in the first half through Wildig who side-stepped Matt Gwynne to put Lads Club ahead.
Westfields continually threatened but could not break down a well organised Lads Club defence in the first half in which goalkeeper Steve Bell performed admirably.
After the break Westfields stepped up their game and had a number of opportunities but again Bell produced a fine display until the dying minutes when Phil Glover shot home the Westfields equaliser.
This forced extra time although Westfields had to play with 10 men when skipper Phil Glover was sent off.
In extra time Westfields again had a number of chances to have won the game but again Bell in the Lads Club goal gave a superb display while at the other end Matt Gwynne also produced a thrilling save when the Lads Club striker was through with the chance to settle the match.
Both sides worked hard to force a winner in extra time but in the end it went to a penalty shoot-out and with Bell saving Craig Jones’ first attempt and Sirdic Grant hitting the post it meant that Lads Club who converted their 4 penalties went through 4-2 on penalties.
Lads Club will now meet Hereford FC in the final at Edgar Street on Monday 1st May, kick-off 3pm.
