PREMIER Division champions Bremhill View and first division FC Bradford served up a feast of football in the final of the Gooding Accounts-sponsored Subsidiary Cup as Bremhill scored an injury-time goal to claim a 3-2 victory at Melksham Town's Oakfields ground.

Bremhill started the game as huge favourites, but it was the underdogs who made a promising start with Ashley Styles having an early effort at goal in the opening five minutes.

As expected though, it was Bremhill who drew first blood when the unfortunate Josh Maguire turned a Billy Gleed corner into his own net on nine minutes.

Instead of imploding Bradford took the game to Bremhill and drew level in the 15th minute when Maguire fired home to atone for his early error.

Two minutes later Bremhill were left shell-shocked when Ashley Styles broke away and flashed home from 25 yards to give Bradford a 2-1 lead.

Bradford mounted more pressure and they were unlucky not to add a third on 25 minutes, a Harry Hamlin free kick flying  just over the bar.

A few minutes later Mark Maguire lifted the ball over the advancing keeper Craig Edwards but his effort dropped just over the bar.

Bremhill then had their best period of the first half with  Gleed hitting the post and when they did get beyond a Bradford back line, which was brilliantly marshalled by Lee Ridout, Josh Magiure, Phil Lewis, Jake Mazan, they found keeper Morgan Williams in fine form as he bravely denied Mark Dolman and Jake Gleed before tipping a goal-bound Jake Gleed cross over the bar to bring the first half to an end.

Bradford again were quickest out of the blocks in the second period with Lee Ridout’s ambitious effort tipped away by keeper Edwards on 57 minutes.

At the other end Bremhill, despite having the lion’s share of the play, were still unable to make any inroads or break down Bradford’s stubborn defence.

That changed in the 70th minute when Alex Lewis arrived unmarked to head home a Mark Dolman corner and make it 2-2.

Things went from bad to worse for Bradford as a rush of blood led to Harry Hamlin being sent off on 72 minutes to leave Bradford with an uphill task for the remaining 18 minutes.

With chances coming and going at either end and both defences putting their bodies on the line, Billy Gleed latched onto an Alex Lewis pass and kept his cool as he tucked the ball beyond the advancing Williams and into the empty net to hand Bremhill their second piece of silverware in a week.

No sooner had Bradford kicked off, referee Steven Brenchley, who had an excellent game in the middle brought the thrilling contest to an end.

Both teams received their mementoes from Sam Gooding from sponsors Gooding Accounts.

Bremhill’s captain Alex Lewis lifted the cup and Bradford’s Lee Ridout collected the Player of the Final award.
