Bournemouth Cup Final
Boscombe Albion 0-3 Brockenhurst Youth
BROCKENHURST YOUTH U16s secured a fantastic double by adding the Bournemouth Cup to their league Division 1 championship.
Brockenhurst faced the tough cup final test against league runners-up Boscombe Albion.
The opening ten minutes were all Brockenhurst with chances falling to Samuel Shearer and Reece Piner however Boscombe soaked up the pressure and broke away themselves only to come up against a stubborn defence of Leo Colmer, Tom Meaton, Daniel Grace and James Nugus.
Brock didn’t have to wait long to open the scoring, Nugus feeding Kieron Hall who beat his marker and fired a thunderbolt of a strike above the helpless Boscombe keeper.
Brockenhurst continued to threaten with Callum Brady, Jack Rose, Cameron Hawkins and Hall running the midfield however the score line remained 0-1 at half-time.
The second half started with a bang with Brockenhurst piling the pressure on Boscombe. Shearer caused the defence problems and Alex de Silva using his pace to great effect.
However, the second goal for Brock came when Igor Moraes cleared to Hall, who drove through the defence and won a corner. The corner was whipped in by Shearer and Brady turned the ball home to make it 0-2.
Boscombe eventually threatened but keeper Samuel Everitt made a superb double save to deny them.
Five minutes later it was Lewis Rickman’s turn to get on the scoresheet when he met a cross, took a touch and fired in with his left foot from the edge of the area, 0-3.
With twenty minutes remaining Brock saw out the match comfortable and claimed the Bournemouth Cup. A fantastic season and a special achievement to win the league and cup double!
