BMFC mixed the line-up this weekend for the first ever match in the history of the club in the Shikara Cup. Some 1st teamers were given the week off to rest, and 2nd team players earnt their place in the limelight.

However it didn't go too well... After 30 minutes Manics were behind 2-1 barely creating a half chance the other end. Manics earnt a free kick, which Dog & Partridge scored an own goal from, but that was as good as it got and the first half ended 3-1.

In the second, Manics got straight to work, but couldn't find the final ball. Manics clawed their way back into the game; first Elliott Fairs with a clearance of the line, and then Barry O'Connell scoring to make it 3-2, Mark Robertson the provider.

Just before the end, Manics had a penalty disallowed, referee Wilkins had the whistle in his mouth and pointed to the spot, but then changed his mind.. the final whistle blew, and Manics go out of the cup..

Thanks to the fans who came to watch the game!

The Manics Man of the Match went to Elliott Fairs.

 Final Result: Bracknell Manics 2 Dog & Partridge 3
