On Friday 30 November Bakewell Town U16s Junior Football Club “Valhalla” beat Calver FC 4-2 in the Cup Final match, played at Buxton FC’s Silverlands ground.
Both sides were very well-matched and played enthusiastically for 90 minutes. Encouraged by a good turn-out of friends and family, the teams worked really hard and neither side gave much away.
No yellow or red cards were produced, although a number of aggressive tackles from both sides caught the attention o the refereee and free kicks were conceded. In the first half a Calver defender was too aggressive and brought down a player within the area and a penalty was awarded, which Bakewell scored.
Afer the match both teams were awarded individual cups and Bakewell’s team captain, Rupert Green, was presented with the league Cup.
