Coventry Alvis are into the Coventry Charity Cup Final after a 5-4 penalties victory against Christ The King.

The first semi-final took place thanks to Coventry Sphinx FC at Sphinx Drive and attracted a good crowd for the game on a mild night.

It was the Coventry Alliance side who struck first when Tom Hall’s close range shot squeezed over the line in the 37th minute.

Alvis from the Midland Football League Division Two, equalised with a stunning lob by Danny Cairns who was fifty yards out in the 54th minute.

Kings had a couple of good chances late on but they were not taken and the match went straight to penalties.

Allen was first to step up for Kings but sent his spot kick high and wide. Keeper Jack Hartopp scored for Alvis, with Searle netting for Kings..

Linton put Alvis 2-1 up. McGinley scored as did Ludford before Wilkinson scored a third spot kick for Christ The King.

Fjodorous scored Alvis’s fourth goal and Kings captain Ryan scored to make it 4-4.

 

Alvis needed to score to win and Danny Cairn duly obliged to sent Coventry Alvis into the final at the Ricoh Arena in May.
