Match Report

For the second week in succession, we were away in cup action but this time in the Essex Junior Trophy, 1st round against May & Baker Community. We started off the more brighter team & created a few chances that come to nothing. After a great save from Mike keeping the scores goalless, we went down the other end & took the lead thanks to an alert Matty tapping in the rebound from a long range shot from Sean. In no time at all, the scoreline was doubled thanks to a great knock from Matty finished by Josh for his first of the day. May & Baker grabbed one back after some shoddy defending from a corner but in no time at all, we had our two goal cushion again after a tremendous cross from Zak was smashed from by Sean. May & Baker then clawed another goal back thanks to a great strike from their player. We then restored our two goal lead again, a brilliant finish from Josh for his second of the day. The last goal of the first half was neatly finished by Sean after a clever through ball from Ben. After a goal fest first half, the second half didn't  disappoint, as the lads started where they left off & the sixth goal of the day went to Zak with his first of the season for the club. May & Baker then scored two goals in quick succession to make the score 6-4 & make it game on with around 20 minutes remaining. Ryan Gallagher then scored an early goal of the season contender with a cracking striker after some lovely play between himself & Ricardo, making it 7-4. The game was then put to bed after a goal kick from Mike was controlled brilliantly by Craig who set up Sean to complete his hat trick. Sean then turned provider to finish the scoring for the day setting up Matt for his second of the day & the game finished 9-4. A cracking game for the neutral & onto the second round of the Essex cup for the lads.
