Coningsby FC 0-3 Swineshead Institute

Silverware was not heading back to Coningsby after The Reds were beaten 3-0 in the final of the Willoughby Cup on Thursday.

Swineshead Institute were the opposition at Boston’s Tattershall Road ground.

On the 15-minute mark Coningsby’s Sean Taylor had a goal disallowed for being offside and it was at this point that the Reds seemed to lose the plot.

It was Swineshead who grabbed and kept the initiative for the rest of the game. Just a few minutes later Coningsby ‘keeper Andy Carr had a long Swineshead ball millimetres from his grasp when it was headed down into the net by the opposition centre forward.

Coningsby tried but at this stage had not enough to offer and were struggling to put any structured set of passes together.

The half time break came and went and Coningsby only managed to rattle the Swineshead woodwork and it was the Institute who scored again on the 75 minute mark when striker Rob Masters booted a long ball which deflected in off the post.

Another Swineshead long volley into the bottom corner of the net just into injury time sealed Coningsby’s fate to be the shield holders for a year.
