Zion Athletic Route To The Final + Squad

Route to the Final

After getting a bye in the First Round of the Cup we faced Maple Leaf Rovers as our first opponents in defence of the Cup. After having our first game abandoned due to the weather we won 8-0 with Sam Crook getting a hat trick. Dave Luxton, Lucien Guernier, Leon Naylor, Jadon Silva and Aaron Poultney scoring the other goals. We faced last seasons beaten Finalists, Sheldon Community Church in the Quarter Finals. Leading 3-0 we switched off and Sheldon came back at us making it 3-3 in 90 minutes leading to extra time. We eventually ran out 6-3 winners with Sam Crook and Jadon Silva both scoring 2 each with Jack Gregory and James Cartwright notching the other goals. The Semi_Final pitched us up against Rowley College who were well organised from the start to the finish. It needed a Man Of The Match performance from Luke Marsh who scored 2 goals but we needed other good performances all around the pitch to ensure we made the Final. Although this is our 5th consecutive Final we still relish the occasion and are eager to participate in what will hopefully be a great Cup Final.
