Wendover Football Club, April 2023

Wendover Firsts recent fixtures culminated in a ferocious League Cup quarter final at St Leonards. Highlights include Luigi Passaro falling victim to a disgraceful challenge, with the ensuing chaos resulting in a straight red for club veteran, cousin, and old enough to know better, Bruno Passaro. Ultimately Tom Cheeseborough shook off injury to heroically make two penalty saves in a tense shootout victory. Wins against Ludgershall, Tring Athletic Zebras and a point against Elmhurst makes it four unbeaten plus a semi-final place.

Drama for the Reserves saw them narrowly miss out on their own semi-final in the Reserves Cup despite a last minute equaliser by Matty Hodges forcing Prestwood Reserves to extra time. Elsewhere, Box-to-box midfielder Callum Thomas scored and missed penalties within five minutes against the ten men of Thame C, drawing the game 1-1 in the process. Mixed results see the Reserves comfortably mid table.
