On the freshly cut Queensway pitch we played host to Thackley Storm. The following was the squad that took part:-
We kicked off and within two minutes we were a goal up. From a good interception by Andrew, he found Joseph. Joseph found Jack who played a one two with the overlapping Nathan and fired a clinical cross shot past the keeper into the net, from just outside the area. 1-0
Back came Thackley with Max making two excellent tackles as the visitors threatened followed by Geno making an important clearance. We then had a sustained period of pressure with Joseph shooting wide and Nathan’s cross reaching Jacob whose shot was blocked. From a corner taken by Jack the ball broke to Geno whose shot was deflected behind for another corner. From this corner Nathan got a touch but the ball fell to Felix who hit a first time shot into the net. 2-0
Almost immediatley from our next attack we scored again. Jacob did well winning the ball before finding Joseph. Joseph played the ball to Nathan who found Jack. As Jack beat a man he was brought down. Up Jack got and fired a superb free kick into the net at some pace to make it 3-0.
Thackley then had a good period of pressure. Max made an important block conceding a corner. From an excellent corner the ball evaded everyone. From their next attacking move Thackley nearly scored. From a good passing move an opening arose for the attacker who hit a fine shot that Marcus pushed away with a firm left hand. What a great save.
Just as we approached half time we scored again and what a cracker it was. Nathan found Joseph who in turn found Felix. Felix ws tackled but the ball broke to Jack. Jack beat a man before unleashing a great long range shot that flew over the keeper and just under the bar into the net. 4-0
Half Time 4-0
Thackley kicked off the second half and immediately went on the attack but just as the attacker was going to shoot Max made a great block and cleared his lines. From our first attack of the half we scored. Jacob found Andrew who played a good ball to Geno. Geno beat a defender before firing home. 5-0
Next Andrew got on the score sheet. From a good run by Joseph he crossed the ball to the far post where Andrew was on hand to fire home. 6-0.
Thackley then got on the score sheet. The attacker had a shot that was well saved by Marcus but the ball broke to another Thackley player who shot home. 6-1
Then we scored another fantastic goal. Max made a great tackle to deny a Thackley attack and then found Felix. Felix beat three defenders as he ran into the oppoition area before firing a great shot into the roof of the net. 7-1
Thackley then scored a second from a good flick from a corner. 7-2 and then made it 7-3 from a good move that ended with the attacker running along the bye line before pulling back for the centre forward to score.
Geno then scored his second following good work by Jacob who played Geno through on goal and he finished neatly to make it 8-3.
As we approached the last few minutes, Geno completed his hat trick after good work by Nathan and Jacob with Geno being in the right place at the far post. 9-3
To complete the match Jack got his fourth goal of the game. Max and Jacob exchanged passes with the latter palying the ball across the area. Both Jack and Joseph went to shoot the ball home but collided with each other. The defender cleared the ball only to Max who found Jacob. Jacob’s cross found Jack who tapped the ball home 10-3
Full time 10-3
Another fantastic performance by the boys with some excellent goals. Credit to Thackley who kept going and made some good chances right up to the end.
