 Young Lambs progress to cup final!


 Tamworth under-21s eased into the Birmingham FA Saturday Amateur Cup with a 3-1 win over Bedworth Rangers at The Lamb on Saturday afternoon, reports Tom Scott. Kyle Hayden (pictured) opened the scoring before second-half goals from Liam Kennedy and Dilano Reid wrapped up a fine day at the office for Tamworth.

 The game took a while to get going with a number of meaty challenges going in, but the tie sparked into life just before the half-hour mark. Kyle Hayden flicked the ball over the Bedworth defender’s head and poked the ball home on the way down to give his side the lead. The Lambs dictated the game from then on in truth, Junior Mpofu going closest with a low drive but the first-half ended with just the one goal.

 Three minutes into the second period, Mpofu was causing problems again but his low shot was well saved again after he cut in from the left-hand side. The visitors claimed a plucky equaliser against the run of play, but the score didn’t stay level for long – Liam Kennedy nodding the Lambs back in front just five minutes later.

 Chances were at a premium after the goal until Reid won a penalty after a foul by the Bedworth stopper. Reid dusted himself down to take the spot-kick himself but fired it straight at the keeper. It took him just five minutes to atone for the spot-kick miss – Jay Thorne’s low cross found its way into the box and the Lambs players were queuing up, but it was Reid who got the crucial touch.

 Ramzi Shaheen nearly got on the scoresheet on his return to The Lamb but the Bedworth keeper produced a fine save to tip around the post. Mpofu threatened from range late with the home side comfortably seeing out proceedings to book their place in the final.

 Either Highgate United or Boldmere St Michaels (AFA) await the Lambs in the final.
