2004-05 MILLFIELD 3 HAMPTON 1

Millfield win the Cup at last - and in triumphant style! 

Millfield won the 2005 Final of the newly renamed Boodles ISFA Cup, when they defeated Hampton 3-1 at Leicester City's Walkers Stadium in front of a new tournament record crowd of 1,709 spectators. Millfield always looked the stronger, older side but they were shocked when Hampton took the lead after 15 minutes through the prolific Frank Paxton. However, it was not long before Millfield's two outstanding players had combined to set up the equaliser, Lewis Irish forcing an error and crossing for Reuben Reid to score. Reid's duel with Hampton goalkeeper Nic Jupp was an ongoing feature of the night, both players performing magnificently. 



Millfield went ahead after half an hour, with Reid goalmaker and goalscorer on this occasion, but the killer blow came seconds before the half-time whistle when the excellent Irish blasted a scorching volley into the net. A rout seemed possible but Hampton battled their way back to make a fight of the second half without ever really appearing likely to get back into the match. It was left to Jupp to produce a flying save from a Francis Rolli piledriver, the last of several excellent saves he made in the match.

A feature of the 2004-05 tournament was the impressive debut, and run to the semi-finals, of the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle, who were perhaps unfortunate not to reach the Final in their first season. Dulwich College also made their first appearance in the competition and were also unfortunate to be paired with perennial giants St. Bede's College, Manchester in their first match but they still put up a brave showing before going down 5-2. Other notable achievers were Kimbolton, who reached the quarter-finals for the first time ever. This never looked like one of ISFA's strongest years and a place in the Final looked wide open for any team that could ride its luck and take its chances. Hampton took advantage of a series of home draws but Millfield always looked the strongest team in the tournament and likely victors.
