The Scarborough and District Challenge Cup dream is over at the first attemmpt for the Goal Sports Giants. Like a virgin between the sheets they started well and found themselves in a bit of a mess by the end - after losing out by 7 strikes to 3 at the Stadio Del Lythe.

The Giants travelled up the coast full of confidence and incredibly happy boys, especially as almost the whole squad can boast a copy of their favourite games console game – Fifa 16.

It was obvious FC Fishermen of Whitby had a game plan and had scouted the Sports boys on many occasions as they kept Rosie the cow locked up in the clubhouse during the week – meaning the grass was lush and lengthy which slowed down the Giants speedy passing game.

Goal Sports started the game with a good shape, even with a host of household names missing from the team roster, with the likes of Pollard, Duckworth, Pickard absent from the line up. Another mention must also go to another absentee; Joe Leslie, who was said to be “Shopping with parents” instead of making the game. A source close to Lezza said “I was stunned when he told me, shopping with parents instead of playing ball is pretty bad, I have never heard of that excuse, I just hope they bought him some good lego for missing the game!”.

The Giants were the first to draw a Neil Prentice shaped stain on the score sheet as the once “larger than life” midfielder finished neatly at close range after great work by Tyson Stubbings down the left flank on 18 minutes.

A great start quickly became a really great start as in form front man Kieran Le’Friett doubled the today’s White Uniforms lead on 24 minutes after a sublime piece of turning trickery by todays wide man Mike Greymar on the right hand side. Greymar beat his marker and delivered a slide-rule pass to Le-Friett and he did the rest with a composed finish past the FC goal-denyer Paul Cull who was incredibly mad at the turn of events.

“I have been beaten by a number of world class forwards in the local league scene in my time, but I have never been beaten by a Frenchman, I will be speaking to our management team to break the bank come January and sign him at all costs” said Cull (Pictured) post match to match reporter Randy Bloomshield.

It was an amazing position to be in, 2-Neil vs a top side and the Giants were flying at their Super League A opponents at every opportunity on the counter.

Le’Friett managed to pass the ball straight to the FC goal-denyer with his left peg, when he had friends well placed in the centre – and Neil Prentice somehow managed to blaze over the white rectangle from all of 4 yards and fail to give the boys a 3 goalshot lead. frown emoticon

FC were rocking but it was the boys from Whitby that were next to do the knocking as some slack defending let the home team striker in on goal and he did not miss with his goal shot straight passed Peacock in the Giants goal.

It was now the away side who were in panic stations as club chairman Pete Stubbings gestured and gyrated on the touch line with hand gestures that can only resemble some sort of sign language the person in the corner of the tele performs to aid the deaf, and the Giants were certainly playing deaf to it as FC again caused their own problems - after a ball was not properly dealt with at the heart of the deefense yet again, and centre back Stewie Wilson for some reason goal shotted passed his own goal-denyer to level the scores! It was an incredible “Heads gone” by the usual dependable centre half back.

The boys in white were desperate for the half time hooter when a driven corner strike attacked their 6 yard zone on 43 minutes and a really big FC dude head kicked the ball in at the far post to give his side the lead for the first time. It was a hammer blow to the Sports boys and the hooter shortly sounded from the Stadio Del Lythe clubhouse.

Half Time – 3 v 2

Words of disappointment were ringing in the Giants ears when suddenly the jinky winger Tyson Stubbings ferreted his way in to the box and fired over Cull to level the tie once again – it was a great response from the boys!

Le’Friett came within a crossbars width of retaking the lead for the Rudstonians but it was FC who from this point on administered the fist to their youthful opponent’s buttocks.

Some very slack defending and a few youngsters who had almost certainly ran out of puff left coach Pluminho feeling like a fat kid that never got the candy. as his side collapsed in the late knockings of the second period to their incredibly clinical hosts.

The game was over, Pwilly had pulled a muscle in his back picking the ball out of the back of the goal interior 7 times, and the young Rudstonians made their way back to their homeland knowing 1 of their 17 cup entries had now gone a begging.

“7-3 maybe flattered us and Goal Sports have a good set of skilful fit lads that deserved to be a bit closer” said FC gaffer Mark Storr to Bloomshield post match.

“The difference between Super League C and A is massively evident” said Pluminho

“In our league they kick and headshot it out of play far more and we were used to getting more rests mid game. We will beat them next time when we can wear our home kit and they cut the grass, oh and if the sun isn’t shining as bright as it was in our eyes too” added the Goal Sports Gaffer.

Fair play to FC for being quality hosts and good luck in the next round of the Challenge Cup!
