David Kite Man Of The Match – Tom Leaver

Alveston are the 2010 Coventry Charity Football Cup winners with a 2-1 victory against Coventry Copsewood at the Ricoh Arena.

In a highly entertaining first half, Carl Nolan’s Copsewood side started brightly with chances for Curtis Jackson, Petajon Gordon and Joe Holcroft in the opening five minutes.

Then, it was the side from Tiddington to have a go on goal as a powerful 14th minute run and shot from Tunde Adibade whistled over the bar at the CT Stand end.

Curtis Jackson went closer for Copsewood flicking onto the roof of the net but in the 35th minute, Alveston took the lead thanks to Tom Leaver racing on to a through ball and slotting past Furlong from eighteen yards out.

A goal up, Alveston kept pressing and a right footed twenty yard shot from James Davies was well saved by Furlong just before the break.

In to the second half and all the action came in the opening six minutes with Alveston adding a second goal four minutes into the second period after Tunde Adibade headed in from eight yards following a Richard Eastell cross.

Copsewood’s reply was immediate. Two minutes later, David Scarr got the ball on the left hand side of the area and left fly with a wonderful shot which flew into the net.

Scarr hit the foot of the post in the 61st minute but Copsewood could not find a way back into the match and it was Alveston who picked up the trophy.

Coventry Alliance side Stockton pulled off a shock 4-0 victory over Midland Combination Premier Division side Massey Ferguson to reach the final of the Coventry Charity Cup.

The Alliance Premier side took the lead when they cleared a 14th minute Massey’s corner and played the ball up to James Harri who played the ball across for Kevin McGarvey to flick past Luke Malin.

Much of the game centred in the middle of the pitch until the end of the half when James Harri crashed a ten yard shot onto the bar and Benjamin fired wide for Massey’s.

Fifty five seconds into the half, James Harri doubled Stockton’s lead when he rounded Massey’s keeper Mark Shiels to fire into an empty net.

Stockton went for it and in the 61st minute, a good move down the right saw the ball played across to James Harri who slotted home.

Less than a minute had passed when Harri completed his hat-trick when he made the most of a defensive mistake and slotted in the bottom corner.

Stockton will face the winner of the second semi-final between Coventry Copsewood and Highway Coundon in the final at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena on Thursday May 5th.

COPSEWOOD LIFT THE COVENTRY CHARITY CUP BY KEV MONKS

Coventry Copsewood were lifted the Coventry Charity Football Cup tonight at the Ricoh Arena with a 2-1 victory over Stockton.

The Midland Combination Premier Division side were nearly ahead in the opening minute when a Jackson header crashed against the bar from a free kick.

As in keeping with Coventry Charity Cup Finals, this was a full-bloodied match with both sides making some crunching tackles in a bid to control the midfield and whilst Copsewood were winning corners, Coventry Alliance side Stockton had efforts on goal through Josh Cole and Craig Watkins.

In the 23rd minute, Gregg Sherrington sent a left footed twenty yard drive over the bar and three minutes later his Stockton team-mate James Harri got through only to be denied by Copsewood keeper Scott Furlong.

The second half was a far more livelier affair with Curtis Jackson and Harri both having chances in the opening exchanges of the second half.

Jackson who was causing the Stockton defence a number of problems got down the right in the 49th minute but Lee Malin parried his shot before the rebound was sent wide.

When Copsewood attacked next, it was to give them the opening goal. A 56th minute ball from the right was played in to DAVID SCARR, who was playing despite suffering a breavement. The midfielder was, named as the Man Of The Match by Coventry Charity Cup Committee’s David Kite, just inside the area when he managed a shot a second attempt that crept past Malin on his right and just inside the post.

Two minutes later, Jackson broke with Malin against partially blocking the shot but this time former Coventry City youngster TIM PARTRIDGE was on hand to fire into an empty net.

Despite being two goals down, Stockton kept asking questions of the Copsewood defence. Watkins fired over, Harri’s ball across the area avoided everybody before Rickie Lee Moore’s sent the ball towards the goal only for Lee Hunt to clear away.

No-one could have deny Stockton their goal which came in the 88th minute when JOSH COLE splendidly rose to head in a free kick and set up a grandstand finish but it was Coventry Copsewood who won the match and lifted the Coventry Charity Football Cup.

Midland Combination Division One side Alvis booked their place in the Ricoh Arena Final of the Coventry Charity Cup sponsored by The Premier Group with a 3-2 extra time win over Southam United at Coventry Sphinx FC.

Both sides had chances in an entertaining first half but it was Alvis who took the lead six minutes after the restart when former Coventry City forward Patrick Suffo curled in a free kick.

Lee Knibbs side were only behind for just over five minutes and drew level in the 57th minute through Pavel Tomczak who finished off a cross from the left from close range.

The chances for both sides continued but it was not until the third minute of stoppage time that Alvis were awarded a free kick and Tom McGuire curled in, thinking he had scored the winner.

However, straight from the kick off, Southam attacked and equalised for a second time through Passey’s shot from inside the area to take the game into extra time.

There were no goals in the first fifteen minutes but Alvis attacked from the restart and Arron Cook scored with a low shot to put Rob Kimberlin’s side into a lead they were not to lose despite having a defender sent off for a second bookable offence in the closing minutes.

Alvis will face the winners of the Folly Lane or Bolehall Swifts Semi-Final on March 27th for a place in the Final at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday April 23rd.

Bolehall Swifts are through to the Coventry Charity Cup Final, sponsored by the Premier Group, after a late 1-0 victory over Folly Lane tonight.

A cold night at Allard Way did not put off the spectators for the second Semi-Final and a good crowd saw an enthralling game between two sides, three divisions apart, determined to make sure that no quarter was given.

The first real chance came in the 23rd minute when Swifts lone striker Thompson sent a right foot volley over and three minutes later, Lane’s Jack Teggin had a header cleared off the line.

In the 38th minute, Folly Lane substitute Pete Bone saw his low shot from inside the area strike the far post and bounce out before team mate Jayden Rickhuss had a shot saved.

Things were pretty even in the second half but the Coventry Alliance side should have taken the lead in the 74th minute when Jack Teggin sent a header from a lovely cross from the left inches wide of McNally’s right hand post.

The Midland Combination Premier Division side started to raise their game with substitute Ball having a shot pushed around for a 78th minute corner.

In the 81st minute, McAdams crashed a header against the bar and the match looked like it was going into extra time.

Referee Adam Lenton had played three minute when he waved play on after a foul. The ball came into the area for Thompson who turned and lashed the ball into the net to send Bolehall Swifts into a Ricoh Arena final against Alvis on Tuesday April 23rd.

Ten man Alvis might have lacked numbers but they scored the goals and won the 107th Coventry Charity Cup Final at the Ricoh Arena.

Alvis and Bolehall Swifts contest the Coventry Charity Football Cup Final at the Ricoh Arena tonight.

Alvis, who had a first round bye, beat Coventry Copsewood 2-1, Dunlop 5-0 and Southam United 3-2 in a thrilling Semi-Final at Coventry Sphinx FC after extra time, on their way to the Ricoh whilst Tamworth based Bolehall Swifts have beaten Stockton 4-1, Jet Blades 4-0, Hawkesmill Sports 7-0 and Folly Lane 1-0 with a Thompson goal in stoppage time to book their place in the Final.

A good crowd approaching a thousand, at the Ricoh Arena saw Damian Cassidy’s side straight on the attack with a Leon Kelly shot after just sixteen seconds winning a corner.

A second followed four minutes later and was met by Christian Jordan who volleyed wide.

Leon Kelly fired wide in the seventh minute and Bolehall who are ten places above Alvis got to gear with first Matt Ball firing wide and then Karl Roach making a tremendous one handed save to keep out a Conor Fulford shot which bounced on the goal-line.

Alvis in their sky blue kit fielded former Coventry City forward Patrick Suffo and the Cameroonian curled wide with a shot on the turn.

Jamie Abbott rammed into the side netting. Alvis attacked and they were awarded a penalty when Tom Starkey was spotted to have shoved. Patrick Suffo stepped up to take the spot kick but hit a tame penalty which McNulty easily got down to and had under control at the second attempt.

In the 26th minute, Alvis had Tommy McGuire for what appeared to be spitting at Daniel Hales.

Alvis did not let their lack of numbers disadvantage them and a 32nd minute free kick was met by Patrick Suffo who hit the bar of the North Stand goal before Kelly hooked the rebound over the bar.

Daniel Hales headed over a free kick, Suffo fired over, Kelly won a 41st minute free kick, Nick Heath sent over a telling cross and Suffo slammed a free kick into the wall before deep in stoppage time, a Calvin Thompson shot was blocked and Kelly followed up before it was cleared.

Two minutes into the second half, James Abbott fired wide from a corner. Alvis countered and Luke O’Kane sent over a deep cross for Christian Jordan to head past McNulty and give the Midland Combination Division One leaders the lead.

In the 57th minute, Alvis went two goals up when Steve Evans got the ball some twenty yards out and sent a thunderous drive looping over McNulty.

Swifts boss Daran Fulford immediately made two changes to try and get back in the match and they were not far away with a 63rd minute James Abbott free kick and a Nathan Thompson shot which Roach got down to.

Roach saved from Carpenter before Swifts made their final change and Dean Kimberlin came on for the Green Lane based side.

Colby Macadams, who was the final Bolehall substitute just missed Roach’s left hand post with a 79th minute free kick.

Alvis used their final substitute after Hales had somehow headed over from two yards and held on to win the cup.

A misty night at Townsend Meadow saw Whitnash from the Coventry Alliance side, take the lead in the 13th minute when McInley was fouled and Craig Watkin slotted home the resulting penalty.

In what was a feisty first half with six cautions, Copsewood had a sixteenth minute effort on goal cleared off the line and Scott sliced over following a 22nd minute corner.
Whitnash won a corner and Bowden fired wide when through before a melee in the far corner saw three players cautioned.

In the 53rd minute, Copsewood were level after being awarded a penalty scored by Bowden. However, parity had only been restored for eight minutes when Whitnash were awarded the third spot kick of the match and up stepped Craig Watkin again to score.

Both sides had chances late on but it will be Whitnash Town in the final on April 23rd.

It will be an all Warwickshire final of the Coventry Charity Football Cup after The Bell/AEI Rugby booked their place in the Ricoh Arena Final against Whitnash Town with a 3-1 win in the second Semi-Final at Coventry Sphinx.

At Coventry Sphinx FC, in front of a good crowd, there was just eighty seconds gone when Robert Crinigan got down the right side of the penalty area and forced James Wardle in the Folly Lane goal to save with his feet.

Folly Lane drew first blood after two and a half minutes when a neat move saw the ball fall for former Coventry City youngster Jayden Rickhuss to volley home off the underside of the cross bar.

In an entertaining game, played in a good spirit, both sides forced a number of corners before The Bell attacked in the 35th minute and Jimmy Smith, who had a fine game, was on hand to fire into the net.

Twelve minutes into the second half and The Bell had a second goal thanks to Dan O’Toole getting to a ball from the right and finishing smartly.

Folly Lane had a 75th minute Luke Seery shot from 35 yards land on the roof of the net and four minutes later, saw a corner scrambled off the line.

Substitute Lee Sheehy headed a Seery cross over. The Bell countered, winning a corner which James Wardle dropped and watched as his defence managed to hack away.

With five minutes left, The Bell booked their place in the final on April 23rd when a break saw Liam Charlton played in and the substitute lashed into the net to give his side a 3-1 victory.

The Coventry Charity Football Cup, which first started in 1907, has a new winner and that is Whitnash Town after a 3-0 victory over The Bell\AEI Rugby in the final.‎

Both teams in this all Coventry Alliance Premier Division final at the Ricoh Arena started positively having early shots from free kicks.

Whitnash had Luke Cole testing Sabol with an eleventh minute twenty yard shot which dipped over‎ and five minutes later, Cole was clean through but Sabol used his body to block.

In the 20th minute, Town took the lead when a corner was cleared off the line and the ball fell for Henry Leaver to drive low past Sabol’s left hand from the edge of the area.

Luke Cole had the ball in the net four minutes later but the flag had long been up as Cole slotted home at the far post‎

Briscoe attacked on his own in the 28th minute and got through only to stroke Sabol’s right hand post.

After Jack Taylor fired wide in the 42nd minute, Mike Eliis drove wide and although The Bell forced three corners, Whitnash led at the break.

In front of a crowd of over six hundred, Ross Briscoe got through for Whitnash, seven minutes in to the second half, to send a right footed shot wide and three minutes later, Josh Cole won the first of two corners. Sobol punched the second away. But the ball only went ‎as far as Henry Leaver who was thirty yards out. Leaver, who was presented with the Man Of The Match award by Coventry City defender Jordan Clarke, he sent an audacious lob which took a deflection and flew in the net.

Whitnash were far from finished and in their third game against The Bell this season, they made it three in the 61st minute thanks to Josh Cole who was proving a right handful for the Rugby defence, scoring with a low drive.

Briscoe had a goal disallowed, fired wide‎ and then hit the post before both managers made changed with all six substitutes coming on to the Ricoh Arena turf. One of the substitutes in Paul Wilkinson got in a great header which Sobol dived to his left to pu‎sh away in the 85th minute as Whitnash, who also had another goal chalked off, ran out worthy winners.

Coventry Copsewood 1-0 Southam United After Extra Time

Coventry Copsewood have won the Coventry Charity Cup after beating Southam United 1-0 after extra time in the final at the Ricoh Arena.

The annual Coventry Charity Football Cup Final, this year saw an all Midland Football League Division One Final between, Southam United who had not conceded a goal on their way to the final and Coventry Copsewood who had got past Alvis, Coundon Court Highway, Jet Blades and Brinklow.

The Saints were the first to have a shot with Jones pushing through to fire wide before Copsewood fielding former Coventry City youngster Michael Quirke won a corner, which was cleared off the line by Matty Hunt. Quirke, playing at centre half, cleared an Ajibade attack from the right before Lee Thomas was involved in a move which saw Chris Bright fire wide in the seventh minute.

Southam had the first corner in the eleventh minute which was cleared and four minutes later, Tunde Abijade drove a shot when left alone inside the area in to the side netting at the North Stand. A minute later, Martin Gormley went through and sliced a shot wide of the far post for Copsewood who forced Tom Cross to gather a cross.

Rawlings had a shot blocked by Bright in Copsewood’s next attack and Dominic Alleyne sent another cross harmlessly across the face of the goal.

In front of a crowd of around 450, Southam won a 24th minute corner which was cleared up to Connoll Farrell who rifled a left footed shot high over the bar. Lawrence Cairns got into a great position to send a pile driver over in the 28th minute with Southam going up the other end through Crisp who fed Andy Yeates who fired well wide.

The Saints won a 31st minute corner and Copsewood had Andy Wilson-King cautioned. Following the free kick, Saints attacked and George Whitlaw did well to head off the line and clear the danger. Martin Gormley attacked for Copsewood having two shots blocked and squared for Farrell to win a 38th minute corner. Southam broke and Lee Thomas played a through ball to Callum Yeates who curled his shot wide of Dale O’Donnell’s left hand post.

The Saints had a 42nd minute corner and after a melee, Callum Yeates fired over. On the stroke of half-time, Southam United were awarded a penalty when Abidjade went down inside the area.  Tunde Abijade got up to take the spot kick but Dale O’Donnell dived to his right and pushed the ball away to keep things level at the break.

Gormley had the first shot of the second half and from a Quirke free kick, Matty Fowler had a shot pushed over for a corner. Rawlings over hit a free kick and seconds later Connoll Farrell got through but he could only fire wide as Copsewood piled on the pressure. Jones was forced to concede a corner from a Gormley cross.

Copsewood won a 65th minute corner which was blocked before substitute Danny Fraser played in Craig Civellis who skied his twenty yarder over the bar. Cross made a good block from Farrell in the 73rd minute which led to a corner either side of two penalty appeals for the Saints.

Brighton went close with an 85th minute attack and Fraser fed for Gormley for a tame shot at Cross before the game went into extra time. Rawlings had the first shot firing over the bar in the second minute of the first period of extra time but it was the Saints who won the first corner which was cleared by Wilson-King.

Connoll Farrell crashed a shot against the cross from twenty yards out in the 103rd minute but the flag was already up and there were still no goals going into the second period of extra time. A Cairns snap shot from the edge of the area went wide five minutes into the second period and Fowler had a header saved from a free kick but in their next attack, Connoll Farrell got down the left and kept his cool to slip the ball past Tom Cross.

With five minutes of extra time left , Southam were awarded a free kick which Lee Thomas curled over and a free kick sailed over but Farrell’s goal was enough and Coventry Copsewood had won the Coventry Charity Football Cup.

David Kite’s Man Of The Match – Halim Halim
—————-
AEI Rugby have won the Coventry Charity Cup after a 3-1 victory over Woodlands WMC at the Ricoh Arena.

This all Coventry Alliance fixture was action from the start with a goal after only twenty one seconds when Halim Halim got the ball on his right, cut in and drove a shot into the bottom corner of the net.

Woodlands forced an eighth minute corner but that was cleared and four minutes later, Woodies keeper Steve Brook had to be alert to deal with an audacious 25 yard lob, which the keeper caught on the line.

AEI had a good chance just before the half mark but that went sailing wide.

In the 32nd minute, Jimmy Smith, got in a shot inside the area which Steve Brook did well to save with his legs.

Things remained tight as the game went into the second half.

AEI had Vince win them a 56th minute corner and five minutes later, the midfielder crossed and there was Jimmy Smith at the far post to head into the net and put AEI further ahead.

Both side made changes before AEI won a corner which Brook superbly punched away.

More changes followed before Woodlands were awarded a penalty in the 73rd minute. Up-stepped Jai Stanley and the former Bedworth United player set up a grandstand finish for the last sixteen and a bit minutes.

AEI won a corner with ten minutes left and attacked five minutes later, a cross from the left picked out Jimmy Smith who headed AEI into a 3-1 lead.

In stoppage time, AEI Rugby hit the bar and held on to the ball to make sure they won the Coventry Charity Football Cup.

FINAL (At Ricoh Arena)

Hawkesmill Sports 0-0 Woodlands (Hawkesmill win 4-1 on penalties)

Hawkesmill Sports are the 2017 winners of the Coventry Charity Football Cup after a 4-1 penalties victory against Woodlands WMC.

This all Coventry Alliance final at the Ricoh Arena, where security was at a critical level with armed police on hand, Woodlands were the first to have a chance with a Lee Greenway shot flying wide in the opening minute.

Hawkesmill Sports, who beat AEI Rugby in the Semi-Final, replied with two corners in the fourth minute.

They had a third in the 12th minute which Brook punched away. When the ball came back in Harvey Headley got in a header that hit Brook’s right hand post and came out for Stuart Paget to clear.

Ben Twitter fired wide from long range before a poor Hindmarsh kick went for the first of two corners.

Dec Doherty shot high and wide for a Hawkesmill Sports side which then won two corners.

Harvey Headley worked well for Hawkesmill all night and earned a free kick which Cooper fired at Brook and on the half-hour mark, played in Luke Malin for a shot that hit the left-hand post of Steve Brook.

As the game neared half-time, Ben Cole who was always a threat, got in a 37th minute diving header which had to be blocked.

In the 53rd minute, Hawkesmill went on the attack and had a shot blocked with Luke Malin coming in and firing over.

Decent chances became something of a premium but in the 82nd minute, Woodlands substitute Didi Warner thundered in a 25 yarder which Tommy Hindmarsh brilliantly pushed over for a corner.

Hawkesmill did get the ball in the net in the first minute of stoppage time when Gaffney bundled home but the flag was up and the game went into extra time.

Hindmarsh pushed over a Ben Johnson shot in the second period of extra time and in the 116th, a scramble saw the ball hitting the Woodlands post yet again.

The deadlock was not broken so it was down to penalties.

Harvey Headley went first for Hawkesmill and scored with Lee Buggea having his spot kick saved by Hindmarsh.

Sean Gaffney put Hawkesmill 2-0 up with Craig Henderson blasting over his kick.

Rob Campbell made it 3-0 with Carlo Welland getting Woodland on the board by firing home his spot kick.

James Bryson stepped for Hawkesmill, knowing that if he scored, Hawkesmill Sports would win the Coventry Charity Football Cup and this Bryson did with complete composure, sparking wild scenes amongst his delighted team mates.

Rugby Borough won the Coventry Charity Cup with a 2-1 victory over Coventry Alvis at the Ricoh Arena.

In a game which the Coventry Charity Cup used to highlight its opposition to knife crime and support for the Daniel Kennell Foundation by having Coventry Sphinx U14’s as ball boys, Alvis from the Midland Football League Division 2, had the majority of the early play.

Dildale Linton was heavily involved, hitting the bar with a shot on the turn in the third minute and driving wide twice before the twenty-minute mark.

Leicestershire Senior League side Rugby Borough twice saw a 34th minute corner hacked off the line before Linton had a goal disallowed and missed the North Stand goal with two more efforts before the half ended in front of a good crowd.

The game sprang to life in the 51st minute when Chater did well on the left and pulled the ball back for Josh Turton to smash home from six yards and give Rugby the lead.

Three minutes later and that lead was extended thanks to Josh Turton hitting a shot which deflected into the net.

Alvis did not give up and they pulled a goal back in the 66th minute when Steve McKenna arrived at the back post to score.

Changes were made but Rugby held their nerve and were able to celebrate their first appearance at the Ricoh Arena with some silverware.

COPSEWOOD LIFT THE COVENTRY CHARITY CUP BY KEV MONKS

Coventry Copsewood were lifted the Coventry Charity Football Cup tonight at the Ricoh Arena with a 2-1 victory over Stockton.

The Midland Combination Premier Division side were nearly ahead in the opening minute when a Jackson header crashed against the bar from a free kick.

As in keeping with Coventry Charity Cup Finals, this was a full-bloodied match  with both sides making some crunching tackles in a bid to control the midfield and whilst Copsewood were winning corners, Coventry Alliance side Stockton had efforts on goal through Josh Cole and Craig Watkins.

In the 23rd minute, Gregg Sherrington sent a left footed twenty yard drive over the bar and three minutes later his Stockton team-mate James Harri got through only to be denied by Copsewood keeper Scott Furlong.

The second half was a far more livelier affair with Curtis Jackson and Harri both having chances in the opening exchanges of the second half.

Jackson who was causing the Stockton defence a number of problems got down the right in the 49th minute but Lee Malin parried his shot before the rebound was sent wide.

When Copsewood attacked next, it was to give them the opening goal. A 56th minute ball from the right was played in to DAVID SCARR, who was playing despite suffering a breavement. The midfielder was, named as the Man Of The Match by Coventry Charity Cup Committee’s David Kite, just inside the area when he managed a shot a second attempt that crept past Malin on his right and just inside the post.

Two minutes later, Jackson broke with Malin against partially blocking the shot but this time former Coventry City youngster TIM PARTRIDGE was on hand to fire into an empty net.

Despite being two goals down, Stockton kept asking questions of the Copsewood defence. Watkins fired over, Harri’s ball across the area avoided everybody before Rickie Lee Moore’s sent the ball towards the goal only for Lee Hunt to clear away.

No-one could have deny Stockton their goal which came in the 88th minute when JOSH COLE splendidly rose to head in a free kick and set up a grandstand finish but it was Coventry Copsewood who won the match and lifted the Coventry Charity Football Cup.
