JKS Football Club enjoyed the highs and endured the lows of cup final football tonight. The youth team beat Hednesford 2-1 in the final of the County Cup at Tamworth’s ground, The Lamb.
But the senior side lost in a penalty shoot out against Fairfield Villa in the final of the Presidents Cup at Boldmere St Michael’s Ground. JKS fell behind in the first half, but equalised early in the second thanks to a Luke Powell goal.
Fairfield took an early 2-1 lead in extra time, and with the Vale side down to ten men following the sending off of Nathan Thompson for retaliation, it looked all over for JKS. Then in the 119th minute of the game, Lewis Cheslin snatched a dramatic equaliser to take the game to penalties.
Fairfield, from Bromsgrove, kept their nerve and ran out 7-6 winners in the penalty shoot out.
