Recap

Reds’ teenagers had to share the limelight with a 43 year old – team manager Brian Dawson – in their high scoring Whitehaven Cup win over Mirehouse.  The gaffer came on as late substitute and scored Reds seventh goal of the afternoon, his first for seven seasons!

Matty Foster

The first goal of this high scoring quarter final tie came after just two minutes when Matty Foster connected with Thomas Downes’ cross to claim the opener.  He doubled the advantage soon after with a carbon copy of the first before Downes got in on the act himself to make it 3-0 inside twenty minutes.

Mirehouse came more into the picture and reduced the arrears on the half hour mark.

Back came Reds with Thomas Houghton restoring the three goal lead only for Mirehouse to respond immediately and make it 4-2 at the break.

Foster (inset) completed his hat-trick soon after half time to put the host back in control.

Brian Dawson

But they squandered an opportunity to go further ahead when Ryan Smith saved Houghton’s penalty.

 

Dan Whitehead‘s meandering run and finish made it six but back came Mirehouse again, netting a fine third with a sublime chip over the Reds’ keeper.

For the record, Kyle Bailiff and Cyran Corlett (2) shared the Mirehouse goals.

Then it was the turn of veteran, Dawson, who rolled back the years and concluded the scoring with his first goal in a Workington shirt for twenty years!

Team: Scott Paden-Gale, Thomas Downes, Dan Whitehead, Logan Bosward, Reuben Butterworth, Tom Skinner, Thomas Houghton, Taylor Hambling, Matty Foster, Jack Burns, Louis Webster.  Substitutes – Cain Pears and Brian Dawson (both used).
