Late arrival Golding grabs double to help Telephones retain trophy
Bristol Telephones retained the Alf Bosley Cup after a full-blooded cup tie against Broad Plain at Yate.
Telephones handed in a team sheet with only ten players because striker Dhani Golding could not leave work in Bristol until 7 pm.
Golding arrived in time to start and, after 11 minutes, gave the Telephones the lead.
Golding scored again after 30 minutes when he beat the offside trap and cooly slotted the ball home.

Just before half-time, a free-kick from Ben Griffiths eluded the Broad Plain defence to give the telephones a 3-0 half-time lead.
Broad Plain took the game to Telephones in the second half and keeper Will Osbourne kept the score unchanged with good saves before Frank Tobin made it 3-1.
Broad Plain kept pushing forward with Telephones defending very deep. And, from a left-wing cross veteran striker Andrew Bateman scored with a brilliant header to make it 3-2.
The pitch became very heavy, which created chances at both ends before referee Steve Poole blew the final whistle to end a game which was a credit to the two teams and the Bristol Suburban League.
