Sunday north home counties
Whitbread cup quarter finals
Silsoe 1 vs. Crawley Green Fc 5
After a few players dropped out of this important match.
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!!!!
