Linby CW 6-3 Radford Notts Senior Cup 1st Rnd

Radford have been playing rubbish recently and a penalty awarded in the first minute for an ankle tap got them off to a bad start. Matt Murphy stepped up and blasted the ball past Martins Apenitis in the Radford goal. Linby attacked at will making light work of Radfords non existant midfield and it was no surprise the home side added to their first goal ten minutes later when Matt Murphy ran on to a ball flicked over the Radford defence and smacked the ball past the keeper. Kyle McDermott looked marginaly offside as he raced free along Radfords right wing cut inside and stroked the ball past Apenitis to give Linby a three goal advantage on fifteen minutes. McDermott made it 4-0 on 18 minutes when he headed a cross onto the crossbar before reacting quickest to head the ball into the Radford net from six yards out. Radford had to wait until 27 minutes before they had their first attempt at goal, a one-two between Lusamba and Allen led to a Lusamba shot from 18 yards out going a foot wide of the goal.

Iain McCulloch let rip with some choice words for Radford at halftime and Radfords early second half pressure paid off when Matt Ball headed past his own keeper to pull a goal back for Radford. Radfords joy was short lived when Arron Ryan put Linby 5-1 up on 65 minutes. Radford came back at Linby and were awarded a penalty two minutes later. Jarrod Russell took the kick only for the keeper to save with his legs, the ball rebounded out to a Radford forward but before he could shoot he was brought down and another penalty was awarded. This time Michael Allen took the spot kick and once again the keeper saved with his legs but this time the ball rebounded back to Allen and he smashed the ball past the keeper to make it 5-2.

Radford were on fire and Stuart Marshall scored Radfords third on 61 minutes. Although Radford had plenty of chances they couldn't add to their score and to add insult to injury Matt Murphy scored a sixth for Linby and claimed his hatrick in the final minute.
