Twin-sponsored team in cup final penalty shoot-out

Twin-sponsored team in cup final penalty shoot-out

An under-16 football team sponsored by Twin narrowly lost on penalties in a cup final recently.

Blackheath Wanderers Football Club took part in a thrilling Selkent League Cup Final against Junior Reds Valiants. Despite Blackheath scoring two great goals, they couldn’t find an advantage over RV in normal time and the match finished 2-2 after 90 minutes.

Extra time came and went with no break in the deadlock, leaving both teams to face the lottery of a penalty shoot-out.

Blackheath lost the penalty shoot-out 3-2 unfortunately, but Manager (and Twin Business Manager) Matt Harvey still felt his team had achieved a lot by reaching the final.

Mr Harvey said: “It would have been great if the boys could have taken the trophy back to Blackheath, but they gave it an enormous effort today and played so well. When a match comes to penalties its anyone’s guess who will win. On another day we might have had a bit more luck and won the shoot-out.

“I’m so proud of all the players at the club, they have done so well to get to the final and I just hope they will be able look back on the occasion and remember the excitement of being in a cup final as well as the disappointment they are feeling right now at losing in such a dramatic way.”

Mr Harvey is the Business Manager for Twin’s employment division. To find out more about the company, click here.
