Home cup match played on 15 August 2009.
Kicked off at 10:30 AM

Last weekend saw a change of venue for Grey Horse, who played their League Cup home tie at Jubilee fields against lower league opposition Sunderland Vane Arms. Grey Horse won the game comfortably, by 5 goals to nil. With 15 players available, team changes were made from last week to give manager Joyce a chance to assess all of the players at his disposal. Horse took the lead after 5 minutes, a rocket shot from midfielder Douglas was parried by the away ‘keeper and Foster was on the spot to open the scoring. A goal-line block by Laffey kept the score at 1 – 0 before Foster scored number two with a bullet header from good build up and passing play. The score was 2-0 at half time, although Horse’s advantage was immediately increased to 3 from the kick off. The goal came from a dribble by Myers, who played the ball to the sub, Dixon, who crossed from the right with Thompson adding the finishing touch at the far post. Myers made it 4-0 with a typical dribbling run before rounding the away ‘keeper, the fifth and final goal was scored by Douglas with 10 minutes left on the clock. The Grey Horse team was commended by their opposition, for sportsmanship after referee Mundell awarded a penalty to the Horse for hand ball, which was declined as it was handled by a Horse player. Horse put in an impressive performance, with great passing and ball retention, and the score line could have been even greater, had the away keeper not been on top form, pulling off numerous good saves.
