Wycombe Town Make it 4 Years in a row.

The Wycombe Town FC overcame pre-tournament controversy to win the finals of the annual Cressex 6 a-side competition for the 4th year running. Wycombe Town finished top of the league level on points with Beaconsfield Megastars, but with a far superior goal difference. For reasons unknown the League title was shared between both teams.

In the finals, Town started strong against unpredictable opponents AFC Barnes with a comfortable 4-1 win. Town were missing a couple of key regulars and called upon Scott Webb for the extra support. Goals from the Mason Brothers and a true class solo effort from Andy Barnes secured the win. Wycombe then beat Tring West End 4-1 which almost guaranteed Town with a top finish and final place. AFC Barnes drew with Italia Unita, this ensured that Town could not be caught and secured their final spot with a game to play.

Keeping their unbeaten record, Town beat Italia Unita in their final league game, running out 3-0 winners enjoying most of the play with more goals from the Mason brothers. A nil-nil draw between AFC Marlow and Beaconsfield Megastars in the other group, saw the league runners–up in the final with Town.

In the final, Beaconsfield enjoyed some early play but found it hard to contain Town and chased the ball for much of the 1st half. A rare attack from Beaconsfield in the 2nd half was broken down and a counter attack saw Town flood the opposing half in numbers. The class of Mason shone through with an unstoppable strike from the left hand side which found the opposite top corner. Beaconsfield tried their hardest to apply some pressure late on but with the Town defence organised and strong, the opposition found no way through.

It was a great success this year for Town who played some excellent flowing football and notched up some truly breathtaking team goals. A strong controlled performance from Ross Middleton at the back and the organisational experience from Andy Barnes in midfield, were key to the success. Final congratulations to Johnny Mason, who for the third year running picked up the competition top goals scorer award.
