Present blast the past as Missenden legends fall short
PAST met present at Great Missenden FC on Saturday – and it was the current crop of Miss players who came out on top.
They beat a Missenden Legends team, who had come out of retirement for the one-off fixture to raise money for charity, 6-0 at Buryfields.
Two goals from Luke Foukles, one each from Irvine, Lawson and Rosner and an own goal saw Great Missenden sail to victory.
A penalty shootout afterwards featuring all 22 players was somewhat closer, and although the current side won again, this time they only just edged it 9-8.
The day, including an evening disco, were well attended, raising a significant amount, which is yet to be confirmed, for the Florence Nightingale Charity.
The club’s end of season awards followed the match and Foulkes followed his brace of goals with a double accolade, landing both the Players’ Player of the Year and Tom Morgan awards. Tom Gasiorowski took home the Manager’ Player, Rob Pooley the Golden Boot and Bill Morgan the Clubman of the Year award.
