Millfield clinch third title

Millfield claimed their Boodles ISFA Cup when they deservedly defeated Alleyn’s 2-0 in the Final at MK Dons FC on 21st March in a match refereed by FIFA referee Martin Atkinson.

Millfield started brightly and dominated the early possession but, despite having more of the game territorially, they were seldom able to test Alleyn’s keeper Savage and it was the Dulwich School who created the two best openings of the half, with the normally prolific Tom Derry just unable to take advantage.

The second half opened with a wonderful point-black save from Jamie Savage but still Millfield seemed unable to translate their superior passing play into chances until the deciding point in the match occurred on 22 minutes.  Millfield won a free kick 25 yards out and captain Albie Gibbs hit a sublime shot into the corner of the net – a goal fit to win a Cup Final! 

Millfield scored again when a corner was met at the back post by Harry Turner whose header back across goal was not dealt with by the Millfield defence and Harry Mennem prodded the ball home.  It could have been three when they were awarded a penalty but Jamie Savage dived to his right to make a fine save.  It proved no cause for concern for Millfield, however, and captain Gibbs received the Cup from World Cup Final referee Howard Webb, the evening’s Guest of Honour.
