Tournament: U10s Invitation Cup Semi Final
Venue: Victoria Park, Worthing

The Atoms booked a place in the Saywell International Arun and Chichester Youth Football League Invitation Cup Final with a hard fought victory thanks to a penalty converted by Sam in the second half of extra time.

The Atoms intent on burying the memory of their semi final heartbreak last season started the brighter in an evenly contested first half going close on several occasions. The second half started pretty much in the same way but Minors to their credit had more purpose about them and caught the Atoms on the counter attack on more than one occasion. Worthing Minors could have taken the lead a number times but for some brilliant goalkeeping from new signing Joe.

The game entered into extra time and there was no sign of the teams being separated as both teams were now toe to toe, with the game swinging end to end but in the 51st minute and deep in extra time a brilliant solo run from Stan saw him brought down in the penalty box. The Atoms converted the penalty and held their nerve in a pulsating semi-final with Jack being awarded Man of the Match for some brilliant defending.

The Atoms will meet rivals Worthing Dynamos in the final in what promises to be a mouthwatering final.
