4 MAY - LEAGUE TWENTYTWO CUP - Turf too Good for Oaks -  A crowd in excess of 600 braved a very chilly eveing to see FC Handsworth Turf (far left) lift the League twentytwo Cup for a second time as two goals from James Leesley helped clinch a 4-0 victory over fellow CBC Premier side Norton Oaks A at Bramall Lane. Leesley was still pipped to the Sheffield Trophy Centre Man of the Match Award by Ryan Goodinson (left) after he set up the first two goals with inch perfect crosses.

Both sides looked to get on the front foot at the outset, but neither could find a away through until, on eighteen minutes, Goodinson received the ball wide on the right and after going past a defender he produced the perfect cross for James Leesley to plant a terrific header past Oaks keeper Ben Birtles (pictured right). Oaks tried to respond with Younes Mekhalfia and Patric Winter trying to find leading scorer Danny Reet, but Mike Golland and skipper David Haggerty looked in no mood to let Oaks back into the game.

After a couple of half chances were wasted, five minutes before the break Turf doubled their lead when Goodinson again made some space for himself wide on the right and he once again produced the perfect cross for veteran Russell Hobson to twist and plant a firm header past Birtles (pictured left). It was almost three just before the break when James Leesley burst past a couple of defenders and he was only stopped outside the penalty area when he was tripped by Oaks skipper Kenny Brakes, but with two other defenders getting back to cover Brakes breathed a sigh of relief when he saw the card produced by referee Dave Evans was just yellow.

Oaks player/manager Andy Dawson tried to rally his team at the break and an early chance almost fell to Liam Paterson until it was snuffed out by a combination of Greg Taylor and Danny Leesley, but it was the Turf midfield that was winning the midfield battles and their third came when a through ball found James Leesley in space down the middle and he produced a finish low into the corner (pictured 1st right). David Sills almost grabbed a fourth for Turf, but it did come late in the game when another move down the right saw the ball crossed for another of Turf's long serving players, Ben Shackshaft, to produce a simple finish (pictured far right). Turf manager Adam Johnson knew his last game before stepping down was going to produce a trophy and his skipper Dave Haggerty and Man of the Match Ryan Goodinson stepped up to receive the Cup from Sheffield United's Super Draw Lotto manager Mick Rooker.

Preview of Forthcoming Games

4 May

It's the Blades Super Draw League Twentytwo Cup Final at Bramall Lane on Thursday 4 May, when the 2008 winners FC Handsworth Turf meet first time finalists Norton Oaks A. After both received byes in Round One, Ryan Goodison and James Leesley goals gave Turf a 2-0 victory at Division One Chapeltown RBL in Round Two, while Oaks was pushed to the limit by Division Two Colley as a Danny Reet double, and singles for Paul Knapton and Matt Lawrie gave Oaks a 4-3 victory. Round Three saw Reet go one better for Oaks with a hat-trick in a more comfortable 3-1 at Division One AFC George, while David Sills also hit a hat-trick as Turf brushed aside fellow CBC Premier side City Taxis 7-0. Ryan Goodison and James Leesley both scored again, while Turf’s other goals came from Phil Miskell and Russell Hobson.

Turf met another CBC Premier side in the quarter finals in the shape of title challenging Redmires. Joe Barrett gave Turf the lead, only for Redmires to level and take the game to extra time and subsequently penalties. Two Sam Atkin penalty saves proved decisive and it was Turf that went through. Oaks twice fell at home against Division One Killamarsh Juniors before winning 4-2. A sweet left foot strike from Rich Conway levelled the first and Jamie Marshall the second. Oaks took the lead in the second half when a corner saw a Killamarsh defender bundle the ball into his own net before Marshall sealed Oaks path through with his second.

Both semi-finals produced seven goals, with Oaks beating Division One Penistone Church 5-2, while Turf beat Woodseats Club, also from Division One, 4-3 after extra time. Liam Paterson was Turf’s hero with a hat-trick along with singles from Alan Mowforth and Danny Reet. Turf looked to have a comfortable victory when a David Sills double and one from James Leesley put them 3-1 in front, but Woodseats hit back to level just before full time. Woodseats were then reduced to ten men, but they looked as if they would take the game to penalties until a deflected shot from Jordan Stocks in the final minute saw Turf through. The honours between them in the League this season have been even with both winning their home games against each other and just one place separating them in the table, this is a final that could go either way. The game kicks-off at 7:30 and admission is just £5 for adults and free for children under 16.
