Commenting on the game afterwards, Ross Hall-Galley from Worcester said:
‘’The score was 5-5 after 90 minutes, with Swindon winning 4-2 on penalties, The game was played in good spirit, and was 2-2 at half time, after Worcester twice came back from a goal behind.
The first 20 minutes of the second half was all Swindon, and they scored 3 quick goals to make it 5-2. However Worcester were not to be beaten, and fought back to bring the scores level.’’
Laura Morris from Rowan House who was there to watch and said:
‘’The guys couldn’t stop talking about Humphrey’s dirty tackle on one of the MSC’s players – not only was he the youngest player at 18, he was also the ref’s son!’’
Worcester's two nominated charities, Acorns Children's Hospice and the Critical Care Unit at The Queen Elizabeth II Hospital Birmingham, will benefit from the epic battle to the tune of £125.
