Keep an eye out for Elias Moore, who is carrying on the footballing family dynasty at Shortwood United.

Moore junior is following in the football footsteps of his dad Rich, who graced Meadowbank more than two decades ago before moving on to play for Evesham, Forest Green and Gloucester City.

Starring in a player of the match performance, Moore was pivotal to Shortwood Reserves’ victory. Earlier, Wood missed an early chance from the penalty spot, Matt Fanstone fluffing his lines.

However, Wood broke the deadlock on 31 minutes through Keegan Bowes
after good work from Max Brent. It was Bowes again after 38 minutes with an assist from Kieran Simmonds. It was Simmonds, who had a golden opportunity of his own two minutes later, one-on-one with the keeper, but he managed to hit the post.

Just before half-time, Bowes got on the end of a floated Colliver free-kick to head the ball wide.

In a mirror image of the first half Wood were awarded a second penalty after three minutes, only for Bowes to miss this time and a chance to claim his hat-trick.

Richians stepped up their game and had the better of the second half with Andy Kelly scoring from the edge of the box in the 81st minute. This lead to a nervy 10 minutes for Wood who saw the game to its conclusion.

Shortwood Reserves: Elliott, Scrivens, King, Evanson, Colliver, Davis, Brent, Moore, Fanstone, Bowes, Simmonds
