Our journey to the Surrey FA County Cup Final:
The journey started way back in September when we were drawn against Millmead (Reserves) in our first ever County Cup match.
26TH September 2015
Millmead v Lyne F.C
This was a very one sided match in which Lyne was far too strong for the Millmead side and we ended up with a 9-1 victory.
24th October 2015
Lyne F.C v Merton Social
If ever a name of a team suggested “pub side” Merton Social did…. But we couldn’t be further from the truth as Merton gave us one of our toughest and most exciting matches in our cup campaign. This match was end to end and included some fantastic goals scored by both sides. Lyne scrapped through with a 3-2 victory in our favour.
21st November 2015
Lyne F.C v LM United
This game had to be played on the smaller pitch at Meadhurst and one that was only just playable with the constant rain in the days before. The pitch and conditions was a great leveller and kept the game much tighter than it should have been. Lyne always controlled the game and ended up with a 4-2 victory.
9th January 2016
Lyne F.C v Burpham
This was a match that Lyne bossed from the beginning, although Burpham did threaten our goal on a few occasions. A comfortable 4-0 win to Lyne.
6th February 2016
Lyne F.C v Horsley
With this being the quarter final it was always going to be tough. It was tough, and made harder by gale-force winds throughout the whole match. This was one match Lyne had to win by just grinding it out and that’s what they done winning 3-2.
27th February 2016
Lyne F.C v Woking and Horsell
Semi-finals are never easy and this one took 110 minutes for the first goal to go in. That goal was the deciding factor as Lyne won 1-0 in a very tight match.
So we are in the final on the 31st March @ Westfield Football club 7.30 K.O.
Can we win it? Both teams could but on our day we could beat anyone.
We will just have to wait and see!!!
Hope to see you there.
