Ken Parker Cup Quarter-Final.
Sunday 15th Febuary '04
Kings Heath United

Golden Horse
    Matt Atkinson
Paul Roseblade

"Recent signing Delroy Kilborn was red-carded as Kings Heath were knocked-out of the Ken Parker Cup. The quarter final derby against Golden Horse was always going to be an angry clash, and things boiled over as Kilborn was dismissed in the 78th minute. Heath lost the game 3-0 after a slow start that was never recovered. Two contraversial first half goals paved the way for Horse to progress into the last four."

Matty Atkinson opened the scoring for Horse but looked 3 yards off-side. The flag never came and Atkinson took his time to slot a neat finish past Urquhart. The second came in even more contraversial circumstances. A blatant handball from Craig McAuley paved the way for Horse's lead to be doubled. A furious Kings Heath were stunned. Further misery for Heath was the loss of skipper Julian Anger with a knee injury.
A half-time rocket from Ivey and a change in formation saw Heath take the game to their visitors in the opening stages of the second-half. Clear cut chances were few and far between despite tireless work from Davies, Kilborn, Jeffery and Blenco in the attacking third.
The killer blow came just after the hour mark, Horse attacked on the break and Paul Roseblade won a highly dubious penalty after a challenge from Nicky Blenco. Roseblade converted the spot-kick hiself to send Heath crashing to their second cup exit in as many weeks.
