Crawley Green FC 5
Sunday north home counties
Whitbread cup quarter
Silsoe 1 vs. Crawley Green Fc 5
After a few players dropped out of this
T he match started
even over the 1st 20 minutes with Danny Watson (former England
School boy) teasing the Silsoe defence. dead lock was broken when
Matty Edge scored a close range tap in. Mark Bunker made it 2-0 with
a deft chip over the keeper and Danny Watson completed the half
with a left foot volley.
Early in the second half Silsoe
scored a deserved goal after the Crawley defence went to sleep.
Craig Meyrick combined neatly with Glenn Freeman and Glen tucked
away a neat side foot passed Silsoe's man of the match , their
keeper. This is where the story gets interesting. Andy Reid was
injured and had to leave the pitch
Crawley then called up Malcolm
Bunker as their number 12. Malcolm aged 50 has been the
oldest player to play for Crawley for the last few years and always
watches his son Mark Bunker (20) play. Malcolm's company are
the main kits sponsors for the Sunday 1st team and a team photo was
to be taken after the match. it has been Malcolm's ambition to be on
the same pitch as his son since Mark started playing the game. Once
"Big Bunks" was on the pitch the game changed. all the players
wanted Malcolm to be involved. the climax came when veteran Steve
Hunt crossed to the far post where "Big Bunks" was standing
(literally) to head the ball over the line. Many beers followed at
the Crawley Green club!! Crawley have been at the forefront of
community and family oriented football. this game proved beyond all
doubt that as well as producing players for professional clubs and
England , Dads and sons can join each other for a game of football
on a Sunday morning!!!
Big Bunks and little Bunks on the same
pitch TOP QUALITY!!
Match reporter this week Mr Malcolm Bunker (ha ha) its all lies!!!!
