Present blast the past as Mis­senden le­gends fall short

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
