DYNAMO Charlton secured a maiden Canesten Combi Cup final appearance when goal line technology awarded Bafetimbi Gomis a notch last night.
Even though the ‘Tactical Brambler‘ failed to show up to the pre-season auction, many were not surprised to see FCT get so close to the final. The ‘Dark Overlord of the Kenna’ is reigning World Cup holder even though he didn’t turn up to that pre-tournament auction either.
Dynamo will face Cowley Casuals in the Canesten Combi Cup final on the last day of the season after semi final opponents Team Panda Rules OK failed to arouse themselves sufficiently to overcome a three-goal advantage from the first leg.
The James Milner goal for Casuals, as well as a Leonardo Ulloa assist, also edged them closer in the title race to league leaders Sporting Lesbian.
At 30 points adrift, a Casuals league and cup double looks a long shot, but Sporting hotshots Graziano Pelle and Alexis Sanchez failed to make an impact this week, leaving the door ajar.
Should Cowley Casuals miss out on both the league and cup, critics will point to poor morale at the club due to their use of zero hours contracts.
The manager maintains temporary contracts give his players more flexibility, but Casuals midfielder Yanick Bolasie has broken ranks.
“They say it allows us to choose our hours, but I haven’t felt this insecure about my job since my loan spell at Rushden & Diamonds,” said the Democratic Republic of Congo international.
“We all feel that whatever happens we’ll all be dumped at the end of the season and put back on the free market in the summer, like we’re all in some sort of fantasy football league or something.”
Meanwhile, after seven consecutive weeks in fifth place St Reatham FC dropped one place in the table.
The manager has denied any link between his side’s change of league position and the discovery of a suitcase containing the body of a dead girl in the Grand Union Canal in Little Venice.
Metropolitan Police are keen to speak to the Surrey man, who was forced to flee the UK two years ago when the battered corpse of Natalie Sawyer was found on Chobham Common.
