Manager Theo Scott was absence owing to an unavoidable family wedding but he would have been pleased at the tenancity of his side in his absence. Whilst the first half vs Westside was a largely forgetable affair that was only lit up by three moments, the match and result was ultimately comfortable for UKFF who now stand on the verge of their first League Title in their debut season.
There was not much in it in the first half – no I mean there was LITERALLY not much in it in the first half and spectators would have been forgiven if minds started to wander. A bursting run by Funes only to miss and a clever goal from Deighton after cutting inside were the UKFF highlights. But it was the equalising goal from Westside , a stunning free kick, that grabbed the first half headlines.
However the second half saw UKFF on cruise control and there was absolutely no doubt whatsoever as to who was going to emerge as winners. Yaya came to the show with an excellent first following a long punt from the keeper but his lob after a through ball by El Hadj was just as delightful.
And it was fitting that Funes in his last match before departure on hoilday scored but his knee injury was not the departing present deserved in yet another MOM performance.
Acting Manager Ewemade Orobator added “Today was the result of the hard work and discipline instilled by the Manager, Theo Scott and his fantastic team of players. It was a priviledge to be involved with them today and should they win the title not one team in the league can complain. After all we had already won it but expunged results after Stoneleigh’s withdrawal means we have to win it all over again. “
