Our Under 11's A squad, who were Mascots for the match
The Under 11's taking part in the "Respect" handshake
The Flag is back. Daz left it at Hednesford in November and they must have washed and ironed it before they brought it back today
Hard times for Jody Bevan as Alex Melbourne leans back and gets into his space
Edenborough, Hoskin and Bevan break away but founder at the 18 yard line
Cheyenne Dunkley makes a rare miscue on a defensive header
Bevan and Hoskin looking for a pass on target
Dan Crane comes out to punch a corner in a wrap of arms and bodies
Alex Melbourne eases Hoskin out of the way as Liam Francis rises to head away and the ref sees nowt in it. What?
Is the ref not seeing anything today?
Ellis Dunton hits the penalty spot with his throw
Both teams set for a Ciren corner
Decio Gomes attacks the ball and very obviously Hednesford know all about making a sandwich for a jumper
Bevan connects but sends it over
Bevan's flailing shot is blocked by Darren Campion, 3. As the ball falls and Edenborough moves to it, notice Dunkley is second from right by the post
Edenborough is onto the dropping ball and Dunkley is moving to block
Dunkley has got all the way across and forced Edenborough to snatch early and send the ball over. Great defending, that.
Ciren free by Mortimer-Jones flies in from the left. Everything is beyond the far post so has the ref got a chance of getting his angles right?
Crane in nets not too happy but his defenders are looking to see if anybody is coming in behind. Good awareness, that
Crane is on the move to the far post, Jody has turned while his marker Francis is jumping and Dunkley is sandwiched between Edenborough and Sysum coming in unchecked
Dunkley shoves Edenborough out of the way and is already going up and back to get onto the ball while Sys is at take off. Chance on here.
Dunkley gets enough on Sys to push him off balance and the ball goes behind off the top of his head. Cunning defending.
Ball goes safe, ref had no chance of seeing that very aware yet cute defending there.
Jody claims corner. Nah - Sys got his head to it. Lino flagged corner! Pfft.
Crane if he is lucky will get through 3 bodies to reach this free kick. Hednesford have been out thunk on the marking here ....
Crane got there, his defender had heard the shout and was not going to jump, and Crane is ahead of Sys
The ball went loose and no Ciren shirt could get there first. Gah!
Edenborough gets a shot off from 16 yards but Crane is in line and ready for it
Safe pouch and no sniff there for Hosky
Sean Wood drives in a free kick and again Ciren have got 3 in against 2 for the jump. Zak Westlake 4 is still rising, by the way
Zak got there and connected and yet again that man Dunkley 'felt' him coming and made sure he filled the space so Zak got turned. Impressive.
Carl Brown makes sure he wins a defensive header as Melbourne challenges
Ball goes loose from a Ciren corner and falls to Carl Brown
Crane is moving and Browner's touch is a bit too heavy
Crane dives in - he is going to claim this one
Jody knows it was a half chance and Brown chooses not to give Crane one in the ribs
The frustration - Ciren have attacked all second half and not made a clean opening
Jay Denny heads away as Sean Wood drives in a low cross
Still the ball came roaring in and still The Pitmen got up to get it away - 83 on the clock now
Richard Mansell does pick up a loose clearance but sends his shot waywardly wide and over
Rare second half Hednesford attack and Sysum is there to get the ball away from the plunging Nick Wellecomme
Mark Draycott zinger flying in, 86 mins
And Crane is down and across to pouch safely
That defender Lean Back skill is something we have yet to get our heads around. Both the defenders are backing in and the attacker is going nowhere near that ball!
Even after getting the ball away the lad is looking to make sure it is gone. 90 on the clock and Jody is plain fed up by now
