Great passing display.
Fourth win in a row.
In tough conditions against a side we've always had close run matches with, the boys showed some excellent passing and movement today that resulted in a well deserved 5-2 win.
We started slowly, getting pushed off the ball and Spartans opened the scoring by winning the ball too easily in front of our area. Maybe a few months ago our heads would have dropped but the boys stuck to what they've been working on in training and equalised with a brilliant shot by Oscar in to the top corner. Great movement and awareness from a throw in lead to Oscar crossing for Billy to score his first goal of the season with a well taken effort and we finished the first half 2-1 up.
They were starting to really spread the ball around and continued their good play by scoring a third, this time Dan heading in close to the line after some good work by Dylan and, again Oscar. Spartans came back in to the game scoring their second, they had a few other chances but Lewis in goal produced some fine saves to keep them at bay. We managed to extend our lead with another two quick poacher goals, Jack this time scoring with his weaker foot from close range and Dan with his second and our fifth.
MoM was Oscar for his excellent passing, movement and work rate, but each and every one of the other 8 boys played their part in securing not only another win, but more importantly, producing another great performance.
