BSCC final: Olney Town lift the Buckingham Senior Charity Cup 2017

Olney Town have won the 2017 Buckingham Senior Charity Cup.

Neil Griffiths’ side lifted the trophy after defeating Winslow United 5-2 at Buckingham Athletic Football Club this afternoon.

Nick Bines fired Olney ahead in the 15th minute before Jordan Appleton made it two nine minutes later.

Winslow fought back after Olney’s bright start and Ben Baines netted for the Ploughmen right on the stroke of half time as he converted Joey Acheampong’s right wing cross.

Twelve minutes after the break Rob MacDonald swept home Drew Mitten’s centre from the left flank to restore Olney’s two-goal advantage.

In the 79th minute Nick Farrow calmly converted a penalty to set up a grandstand finish.

Sadly for United they conceded two goals in as many minutes after scoring from the spot and the game was won for Olney; Town skipper Sam Parish stroked home a spot kick and Jordan Appleton netted his side’s fifth and his second.

With £900 raised from the gate money and £126 made from the raffle, as always, charity was a winner again after another successful Buckingham Charity Cup campaign.
