The 1st XI retained the Arthur Dunn Cup on Saturday 21 April, coming from 2-0 down and 3-1 down to snatch a last minute equaliser to force extra time and then penalties. As has been customary in Dunn Finals, we put away all five of our spot kicks, with Rob Procter making the key save to allow 'Man of the Match' Time Downes to slot home the winner.
It was an energy sapping afternoon for players and fans alike and against significant challenges, we again found a way to victory. An incredible effort.
Jamie Cameron lifted the trophy, putting himself into the history books in the process, becoming the player with the most individual wins (8) in the 125 years of the competition. If they could find enough bronze, they would make a statue I’m sure.
We have an amazing record in the Dunn, with this being (I think) our 9th win from the last nine finals we have appeared in. That not only is an incredible achievement, but shows the mental strength, desire, resilience and teamwork that we have instilled as a club and sets us apart from our competitors.
Thank you for those who made the trip to support on the afternoon, it makes a huge difference to the team knowing they have the backing and energy of the club behind them.
The 1st XI still have 5 tough league games to fulfil and the maths is now simple. Win them all and we win the League.
We have locked in a date for an OCFC Winter Dinner at the Old Charterhouse. Please keep 15 December 2018 free. More details to follow.
