Corfe Castle Win The Jimmy Hollywood Cup

By Swanage FC

Win for Corfe at Day's Park.......

Corfe Castle won The Jimmy Hollywood Cup, defeating The Swans 3-1 at Day's Park. This result means the clubs have one victory each with The Swans winning 1-0 last season.

It was alway going to be very difficult with the very hot conditions, however both teams produced an entertaining game. Swans keeper Dan Beeston had to make a couple of good saves and Aaron Atkinson had a good chance but there was very few chances created in the first half H.T. 0-0.

Corfe took the lead after 60 minutes through ex Swan Garan Bennett, this only lasted 2 minutes when Sam Willcocks equalised for The Swans with a close range effort.
The visitors fitness levels were a telling factor as they started dominating proceedings and 2 goals from Brendon Flockton sealed the victory for the newly promoted DPL side Corfe Castle.

The most important factor is the event was a tremendous success and a fantastic amount of money was raised for The Forest Holme Hospice. And the life of the late Jimmy Hollywood was celebrated and remembered.

Thank you to all that attended and donated.
