St Georges Clinch FPI FA Cup Final

St Georges scored twice late in extra time to secure their 11th FA Cup.

St Georges took an early lead on two minutes through an excellent Furo Davies free kick from distance. Peel soon equalised after 21 minutes when Kerron Christian expertly headed the ball into the far corner. It was a close affair and the score remained 1-1 after 90 minutes as it was in last years FA Cup Final between the two teams.

And like last year, Peel took the lead in extra time when Christian grabbed his and his teams second tapping home from 6 yards out. St Georges responded with 8 minutes left when centre back Sean Quaye nodded home Frank Jones' cross to level the scores. With penalties looking likely Jones himself struck home the winner to ensure a 3-2 victory.

Congratulations to St Georges and thanks to sponsor Friends Provident International for their continued to support. Also thanks to the volunteers who helped steward the Final.
