Fc premier go out the cup but never gave up.

Hat-Trick for Kosheen!
This game was always going to be difficult against a team that has been unbeaten in all competitions all season but it was made more difficult by having 3 players missing, 2 injured and one on holiday. Stuart Beebee
really stepped forward for the team and went in goal in the absence of Kieron Buchanan and Stuart who is usually a defender made some decent saves for us including a few one v ones with his legs. We were 2-0 down within 20minutes which was the worst possible start but we don't give up that easily and 2 goals in 4 minutes from Kosheen Sappelton
made it all square approaching half time when Newlands were awarded a penalty after their player slipped on the muddy Ray Hall lane pitch which they converted and then added another straight after so we were 4-2 down at half time whenwethought it was going to be 2-2, such a blow after performing well and battling back. We were encouraged by our first half performance and 10 minutes into the second half we were back to 3-4 after a Tyrece Junior
corner was nodded in by Daniel Henry
on the near post. Unfortunately the diagonal balls, great running and ruthless finishing from Newlands put the game beyond us after scoring 4 goals in 16 minutes to make it 8-3 but even then our lads didn't hive up and Kosheen Sappelton
completed his Hat-Trick and immediately got it back to 8-4 before a late 9th from Newlands gave them a deserved victory although we did miss a number of really good chances which if they had been put away who knows what would of happened.
Well done boys for all your effort. A hat -trick for Kosheen Sappelton
and some great unselfish play from his strike partner and rival for golden boot Daniel Henry
assisting 2 of his goals. Man of the match was Josh Capelin, chosen by Newlands manager.
