Justin sparks Legends' latest win

Posted on 12 April 2012  - 07:50

Fresh from a hard-fought 5-3 victory at Broxbourne in Hertfordshire on Sunday, the Spurs Legends will be back in action this Sunday morning at Berkhamstead - just hours before the FA Cup semi-final a few miles up the road.

Justin sparks Legends' latest win

The lads will be turning out to face a Virgin Trains XI at Berkhamstead FC at 11am on Sunday (April 15), with the likes of Tony Galvin, Mark Falco, Clive Wilson and Stuart Nethercott just some of the ex-Tottenham favourites set to appear.

The match takes place at Berkhamstead FC, Broadwater Stadium, Berkhamstead, Herts, HP4 2AL.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £2 for children and will be available on the day.

The ground is conveniently located close to Berkhamstead train station, with trains running direct to Wembley Central at 05, 19 and 39 minutes past the hour, the average journey time being 22-28 minutes.

The Legends are in flying form going into the match, after a strong line-up defeated a Broxbourne Borough V&E XI 5-3 on Easter Sunday.

Chris Perry, Justin Edinburgh, John Lacy and David Howells were just some of the names on show in a hard-fought contest in front of a large crowd.

Garry Brooke’s quickly taken free kick was well saved by the Broxbourne keeper in the opening stages, before Howells shot wide after being fed by Mark Stimson, who came on as an early substitute for Brooke.

Justin Edinburgh opened the scoring on 14 minutes with a contender for goal of the season. Howells’ ball in from the left was met by the onrushing Edinburgh, who curled a delightful volley into the top corner to send the crowd into raptures.

Steve Sedgley played Mark Falco in shortly afterwards, but he was denied by the home goalkeeper, while at the other end, a miraculous double-save from Legends stopper Gareth Howells prevented Broxbourne from equalising.

A lob from Edinburgh forced the Broxbourne keeper to back-pedal and tip the ball over the bar, but the Legends were then hit by a quickfire double just after the half-hour mark as Broxbourne turned the game on its head to take a 2-1 lead.

The Legends were back on terms on 35 minutes, though, as David Howells won a penalty and dusted himself down to send the keeper the wrong way from the spot.

A goalline clearance kept Broxbourne in the game on 52 minutes, but a good strike from substitute James Bunn put the visitors back in front 10 minutes later.

Micky Southam lashed home for 4-2 on 80 minutes, but Broxbourne pulled a goal back six minutes later to set up a nervous finish.

However, Micky Jarrett made sure of the win for Spurs when he despatched a late penalty with aplomb to continue the Legends’ winning trend in 2012.

Spurs Legends: Gareth Howells, Paul Miller, Tony Galvin, John Lacy, Stuart Nethercott, Garry Brooke, Mark Falco, Steve Sedgley, David Howells, Justin Edinburgh, Chris Perry. Subs: Mark Stimson, Kevin Watson, Andy Polston, David McDonald, James Bunn, Trevor Wilkinson, Micky Jarrett, Andy Edmonds, Micky Southam.
