By Randy Bloomshield, Scarborough News of The World.

The Purple army were left on cloud 8 as they left the Storm Roofing Arena today as a complete, dominant display by their heroes coupled with goalshots by Parkin, TS7 and Harold Deness made the price hiked £3.50 entry fee to the ground more than worth the huge 75p increase, as they left with that warm happy glow deep inside them.

A year on after the catastrophic collapse and the greatest comeback in world football (Including recent Champions league games) by the Edgehill Iron Pigs reserves that saw the Giants leave the soccer field of the Final with the 2nd placed championship medals, today was always going to be an emotionally charged affair.

It didn’t take long for those emotions to take centre stage as what can only be described as a stone wall penalty shout by the Giants after only 47 seconds of the tie was somehow waved away by genuine nice guy and todays whistle lord Stanly Jackson.

Stubbings had inserted the fist to the Fishburn back door and was seemingly felled by the onrushing keeper, with his team mates admitting the death strike should have been awarded as they stopped, with shock on their faces that they had indeed gotten away with one early doors.

The tone had been set by the home side as they attacked with wave after wave which resembled the Scarborough coast line as it laps its way up the beach in front of Olympia leisure, as Stubbings flashed a half chance just wide as he cut in from his left wing berth that was very close to opening the scores.

Prentice, who recently admitted to the Giants club reporter Gail Hailstorm how his favourite animal is always one that Burrows deep in to the ground whilst sleeping, was tearing it up like a ripped dog toy on the left as he continues to work his way out of his long-time friend and very short time Seamer Dynamo lover Ben Mason’s shadow.

John Grayston saw the first big chance of the first quarter on 29 minutes as TS7 found the gangly wide man with a side foot pass that sent him through one on one with the Panthers goal denier. With the ball bouncing around like a happy hopper on the Rudston turf the fans held their breath and were sadly left saddened as Graystons lob attempt made its way straight to the glovemans two handed grip. It was a huge chance but the home side were not done by a long shot as they remained the side in the ascendancy.

There were some pretty mean felony’s by the Whitby based Soccer Franchise as one real naughty Panther picked up a minor felony card from black man Jackson, as a number of high cleat kicks were left unpunished much to the home sides disgust.

First Quarter – Neil v Neil

The territorial advantage doesn’t always mean victory, just ask Adolf and his German pals back in ’44, but the Giants were adamant not to follow suit of the Kaisers poor tactics as they continued to push the thrust down on their ride to the W and on 58 minutes they were rewarded real nice.

A training ground set piece which will not be described on social media in fear of rival franchises picking up one of our major victory hunting plays saw Brad Parkin meet the ball, and slam home for his 2nd goalshot of the season, and one which caused the first wave of two handed claps from the subshack and its bumper fan base.

TS7 and Prentice were like the two naughty kids in your class who made the teacher cry at school by working together to be incredibly mean and naughty, as their green chemistry link and proper sick combination play saw them rip the Panthers right side a new one as they failed to find the answer to their trickery.

It wasn’t just our purple forwards excelling either, as Parkin, Smith, Wilson were defending the SGI of Pwilly magnificently with some fantastic slide dispossessions and double player contact situations. The Giants were bang up for this!

Greymar, who was another putting in a fabby dabby dozzy type of performance as lead strike, somehow managed to fail to insert from 4 yards with the goal gaping, and John Grayston flashed a shot in to the side netting after a swashbuckling run down the right.

Stubbings, who had just seen a long range head kick kiss the vertical white beam and go wide of the SGI was alert - showing the movement of a prowling alley cat looking for that sweet night time mouse - as he made his way on to a Plumpton through ball and finished real neat to double the home sides lead on 63 60 second totalizations.

It was around the 70th minute of the tie when news began to filter through of a tragedy concerning one of the Goal Sports nation with Jake Adams (Pictured) unfortunately receiving more than just his desired haircut from his barber, as the hair snipping dude sensationally cut off part of his ear meaning only half of his haircut was actually haircutted and he now needed a throng of stitches!!! Unbelievable!

With this firmly in their minds the Giants received that little boost that you need to push for the final whistle and the emergence from the sub shack of Harold Denness and Seaside Tommy Wilde would prove pivotal late doors.

Denness, who is one of two, found himself with time and space in the DBZ to drill home to make the score to 3s and send the Goal Sports nation in to raptures at the final whistle.

The hooter hooted on 90 and the sound of handclaps and back thumps echoed back from the hills at the Subshack stand. The Giants had done it! Their 2nd final in as many seasons and with last year’s lesson in game management firmly in their minds – this year the purples believe it could well be their year!!!
