SBC 5s Cup Final Preview - The Road to Chiswick! 

Having only just gotten over the elation of their semi-final victory, it was a cruel blow to be faced with the global reality that football may just have been cancelled for everyone. After six long months of staying home, waiting, and more waiting, the day they have waited for, and worked so hard for, has finally arrived. On the eve of the 5’s cup-final against Broomfield, here’s a quick recap of the journey on the pitch they took to arrive here. 

Vs. Merton
Result 5-3 (AET)
December 7th 2019. On a cool winter afternoon at Turney Road South Bank Cuaco took on league rivals Merton 4’s on the narrow Hollington pitch. Despite less than ideal pitch and weather conditions, the boys in blue raced to an early two goal lead thanks to top goalscorer Jacopo Amorfini and the impressive debutant Kevin Keeney. A surging second half from Merton saw them reply with three unanswered goals, taking advantage of the narrow pitch with long throws, bringing chaos and scrappy goals to leave South Bank trailing with 10 minutes to go. A quick tactical switch which saw Nick Saqui moved to the right wing proved deadly, as some clever link up play with Ashley Blair saw him equalise with just minutes on the clock to send the match into extra time. It would be Nick again to prove to be the hero on the day, as he put Merton to the sword twice more to complete a super hat-trick and send the 5’s into the Quarter finals. 

The Warren 3’s
Result: 3-4
January 11th 2020
In a park South East London, thought to be on Rio Ferdinands dog-walking trail, the 5’s faced off against a youthful and energetic Warren 3’s side on a surface many would describe as ‘a mud-bath’. Pleased just to play football again after the winter break, there were few complaints. It became clear early on why the Warren 3’s had been tipped for the trophy by some, as they demonstrated energy, speed, and technical ability well above any side South Bank Cuaco had faced so far in the season. That said, it didn’t stop South Bank going in front through Jacopo Amorfini and Troy Thomas. But no sooner were they in front did he 5’s find themselves down again, conceding three poor goals in quick succession before the break, leaving themselves with work to do in the second half. The second half saw Cuaco soaking up pressure early in the tie, before Luke Delaney won a penalty, converted in cool fashion by Nick Saqui. Luke Delaney would again feature, using his electric pace to get in behind and slot home for what would prove to be the winning goal. In true cup-tie fashion, The Warren threw everything they had at South Bank Cuaco in the closing stages, including their goalkeeper, but it was the yellow and blue who would progress to the semi-finals. 

HSBC  Result: 2-1(AET)
March 7th 2020 
To keep the theme going, the footballing gods made sure that South Bank Cuaco were to play their semi-final against HSBC in equally difficult conditions as the previous two matches. Having had the two previous fixtures called off, it was no surprise that even HSBC’s, usually immaculate turf, had been deemed playable despite the ground barely being solid enough to stand on. Also in line with the previous matches was the drama that would unfold in New Beckenham, as the 5’s would get their go-ahead goal through a Jacopo Amorfini header, a testament to his mental strength having missed a penalty just minutes earlier. HSBC would equalise before the half was over. In the second half, HSBC would dominate possession as South Bank fought against the mud in their half, but were thankful for it’s impact as HSBC twice missed from very promising positions due to the ground making it nearly impossible to make clean contact with the ball. Having soaked up wave after wave of HSBC attack, it would be the Italian Stallion, Jacopo Amorfini again, who would find himself through on goal, and slot home to restore the South Bank Cuaco advantage. Despite enormous pressure in the closing stages, the mud covered heroes held out until the final whistle, securing their place in the cup-final
Six months ago, Dan George and his team of warriors received the devastating news that the cup final on March 14th had been postponed due to Covid-19. Now, after some mixed results during pre-season and an unfortunately extensive list of injuries, SBC 6s are once again preparing for their Junior Novets Cup Final this Saturday against Old East Barnet Grammarians. Let’s have another look at how they got there. Presenting, “The Road To EBOG!!!”

The 6s had to win a 3 match group stage before the quarter and semi-finals in order to reach the showpiece final. SBC breezed through this group, scoring 15 and conceding only 3.

Group match 1: 14/9/19- Beat Old Wilsonians 8s home 6-2 (Rasaki x3, Lempriere, Howell, Balmforth) 

Group match 2: 5/10/19- Beat Old Actonians 8s home 5-1 (Choudhury, Stewart, Pittala, Hassan, Cockburn)

Group match 3: 12/10/19- Beat Civil Service 8s away 4-0 (Pittala, George x2, Thompson)

Quarter final: 11/1/20- Beat Old Blues 4s away 3-0 (Manners, Aston, Taylor)

Despite playing a team from a division below and the comfortable looking scoreline, the game was anything but and was only decide with 20 minutes remaining. After Simon Manners’ late opener, Dan ‘Hawkeye’ George set up two to see his men through to the semis.

Semi Final: 7/3/20- Beat Civil Service 7s home 3-2 (George Thompson x2, Manners) 

Due to weather conditions, SBC 6s, despite being the home team, had to play away at Civil Service. SBC were pushed to the limit having to twice come from behind despite being the better team, before Simon Manners netted a late curling winner to send the home team through to the final!

STAT ATTACK!

The quiz also saw many of our members take home prizes in the ‘Wozza-raffle’ and a heartfelt goodbye (for now) to ex 1s skipper (and best left back of his generation) Ben Thomas who departs for Manchester.

Thanks to Toff and Wozza for presenting the quiz and the raffle, Mr and Mrs Howard, Jo and Simon for the catering!
