Lincolnshire Junior Cup

Immingham Bluestone 3

White Swan Barrowby 4

Swans overcame their toughest test of the season and gave their opponents a shock when they took a 1-0 lead after Wilson scored from a difficult angle.

Swans doubled their advantage after a vibrant Radford skipped through the home defence to unleash a shot which smashed off the far post to land at Wilson’s feet to tap home.

Barrowby were made to pay for giving away a sloppy free kick which was despatched into the top left hand corner, giving Flavell no chance.

On 27 minutes, Jones saw the opportunity to burst through midfield and roll a perfectly weighted pass to Wilson who coolly rounded the keeper to complete his hat trick.

Swans were yet again made to pay for giving away a sloppy free kick to make it 3-2 at the break.

Bluestone finally levelled when a throw-in deep into the Swans’ penalty area bounced through the crowded box to be flicked home.

Swans had the perfect reply to this when Radford hit an unstoppable shot from outside the box that bent round the keeper’s right arm and went in off the inside of the post.

Bluestone nearly got their reward but for a quite unbelievable save from Flavell that left the home crowd in disbelief.

Swans held on for the victory and their reward – an away tie in the last 16 against Moulton Harrox.

Man of the match was Ian Flavell, match day sponsor was Grantham Honda, and Bloomsbury Bread sponsored the ball.
