I am now very close to the 100 mark but had to endure another trip to Boldmere for another cup final. This was a more interesting one though, as it had 2 over 35 teams who included a few ex professional players.
Monica Star have ex Birmingham player Lee Carsley as their main figure head aswell as ex villa players Darren Byfield, Lee Hendrie and Stillian Petrov Although the latter lasted just 7 minutes.
Lee Hendre gave Star in the red the lead on 12 minutes with a 25 yard strike beyond Taylor bottom corner. Wychall never looked in it and scored off their first shot, Leon Blake’s 25 yarder going in off the post. The lead didn’t last long, as in 34 minutes Matty Robinson headed in.
Straight into the second half, Byfield slotted home a penalty before it was wrapped up by Robinson, shaking a challenge off to roll the ball into the far corner. Wychall pulled a late goal back through James Myatts shot across the keeper.
