FA Trophy Final
We got off to a great start with a scrappy tap-in from Jarvis in only the 2nd minute. On 40 minutes Arturo ten Heuvel’s free-kick met the head of Albrechtsen who directed the ball into the back of the net, 2-0. Just before half-time Braintree pulled a goal back from a well played corner. Half-time score 2-1 Havant & W.
We looked better in the second half and worked hard to increase our lead to 2 goals again. On 67 minutes it came, a beautiful run from the competitions top scorer McShane and a perfect pass allowed Jarvis to tap the ball into the net from only 5 yards. The full-time score 3-1... Havant & Waterlooville win the FA Trophy!
A good performance, a great result and I’m delighted we’ve won the FA Trophy especially as we aren’t even officially a BSP team yet.
The FA Trophy win gave us a huge boost in finances with over 150K coming in from that match alone, however our finances are still in the red and I aim to balance our finances at the beginning of next season with some player sales.
Managers Players of the Season
1st - Arturo Van Heuvel - ML - By far our star player this season and not only has he contributed with an incredible amount of assists but he’s also scored 13 goals from midfield. Will definitely be in next seasons squad.
2nd - Jacob Albrechtsen - DC - Solid in defence this season and has become first choice centre-back.
3rd - Michael Duckworth - DR - Only a back-up player last season and has broken into the first team and really impressed. He’s improved more than anyone in the squad this season.
