I was going to call time on my season last week but I’ve pushed for a extra one with the BCS cup final at West Bromwich Albion. They charged £1 to get in and the heavens opened just after.
Alum Rock have finished in second placed while Sparkhill won the League and we’re looking to do the double. Alum Rock in the red strin bossed the first half but had poor firepower up front and did nothing with it firing a host of chances wide.
The second half was a different story as Sparkhill looked rejuvenated and took the lead on 51 minutes, a deep cross from the right was nodded in from 4 yards by Habeel Nawaz . On 55 minutes, it was 2-0 a corner was met with a side glanced header by Tariq Rashid into the far corner. There was further damage done on 68 minutes , a pass down the middle let in Allando Davis to slide the ball underneath the outrushing keeper for 3-0. Alum Rock brought a smart one handed save out of Sparkhills keeper from a free kick. There was late drama as Sparkhill went down to ten men, the defender saving with his hands . Alum rock stepped up and cannoned the ball off the bar compounding a miserable day for them.
