Cutting quite a dash on the Mythop/Dunes semi final line was BFSFA Discipline Officer John McNicholas. When questioned late in the game about whether he knew what to do with his flag by a defender, he replied “I can assure you sir that I know exactly when and where I should be sticking my flag, but as we’re in polite company I will refrain from demonstrating”

An event which registered on the Richter Scale as Red Rose Catering’s John Mendonca takes a tumble following a Squirrel player’s ‘perfectly timed challenge’. Both players dusted themselves off with no ill effects.

More action from Reform vs Poulton in the Gledhill Semi

AFC Dunes fire in a free kick. I can see the obvious place to stick this one, pity the taker didn’t as his shot cannoned back off the wall.

This time they’re defending from a Poulton corner

Jimmy Duckworth was pulled off in the second half. “I had no choice”, said his manager, “he’s sobered up…”

A Mythop forward wheels away in delight following the equaliser whilst the Dunes first team manager Jimmy Drinkwater watches on.

No idea whats going on here, but I last saw that move in Cahoots

AFC Dunes’ Mitchell acrobatically controls the ball, risking a hernia in the process.

Mythop can do nothing as AFC Dunes score again. Serves the keeper right for wearing a United top.
