  1. Great use of subs. Brings on Joe Powell and Hector-Ingram and one crosses for the other to equalise. Well done lads. More of the same at Barcodes next week. COYI X

  2. Is this a two leg final? Seems strange to be a single game at the home of your opponents

    • The rules state the final will be played in the home stadium of whichever team finished higher in the PL2 league. Newcastle finished one place above us

  3. Great performance to dig in and continue creating chances, we should have scored a lot more but they could argue the same thing. Fingers crossed for another big win against Newcastle COYI !!!
