Trident Football Club – December/January Results

We last caught up with AFC Trident at the end of November, and plenty has happened since then.

In their first match of December, Trident played Blockley Sports in the third round of the County Cup. With top goal scorer Chris Morris unable to play due to injury, the rest of the team stepped up, with Daniel Whisby scoring in the first half. Stuart Hindley and Craig Cooke kept a strong defence in the second half, preventing Blockley Sports from equalising and enabling Trident to score two further goals from Matt Hindley and Liam Poole. The game ended 3-0, with Trident securing a place in the quarter final.

So far unbeaten, following 12 straight wins, Trident’s next match was against Frampton United 3rds. Despite Trident having the most chances in the first half, Frampton were the first to score, followed soon after by an equaliser from Liam Poole. There were more missed chances for Trident in the second half, while Frampton had an opportunity and took it, scoring a second goal. With just seconds to spare, Liam Poole scored his second goal of the game for Trident, but a 2-2 draw was the best Trident could manage, and this unlucky thirteenth game of the season finally put an end to Trident’s winning streak.

Following their disappointing draw against Frampton, Trident travelled to Rodborough hoping to get things back on track. Unfortunately Rodborough Old Boys had other ideas, and took the lead at half time. Another goal for Rodborough early in the second half was eventually followed by Matt Hindley scoring for the Purple Army. This spurred Trident into action, but they were unable to level the score. Rodborough took advantage of a late slip in defence to finish the game 3-1, marking Trident’s first defeat of the season.

In the first game of 2015, Trident travelled to The Village FC to fight for a place in the semi final of the County Cup. This promised to be an exciting game as both sides were top of their respective leagues. In an energy-filled first half, Karl Robertson and Matt Hindley scored for Trident, leading to a 2-0 half time score. Another two Trident goals early in the second half, courtesy of Liam Poole and Matt Hindley again, doubled the team’s lead. Left back Michael Levett scored Trident’s fifth goal, followed by a great header from Matt Brookes. The final score was 6-2, with the Purple Army going through to the semi final.

Trident’s next game, against Coaley Rovers Res, resulted in an impressive 8-0 victory, with hat tricks from Matt Brookes and Karl Robertson, plus a goal from Chris Morris after returning from injury. Their eighth goal came courtesy of the Coaley goalkeeper, who punched the ball into his own net from a cross.

In other news this month, Trident reached the semi final of the Charity Cup after Stonehouse 3rds couldn't field a team.
