Home league match played on 24 February 2013.
Kicked off at 11:00 AM


Well football was back on after nearly a month of sleep ins on Sunday (apart from last week when it was called off when we were en route) after waterlog pitches, frozen pitches and pitches coved in snow. We were all set for a good game of football even if it was a touch chilly.


With the squad depleted by a late injury and a wedding we were down to the bare bones. So manager Graham Mcdonald had his hands tied in this crucial game.

Some games of football the score line is a fair reflection on a game, others not so. This was the latter of the two. The young lions never really got out of second gear yet didn’t need to. But on another day against another team we would have been punished more. As it was with only 5 minutes gone Harry Baines finally got his name on the score sheet firing home after good work from Alex Mcdonald and Jacob Costello. The goal seemed to settle the team down but still at times the ball was like a pinball machine. With the midfield battling hard chances were always going to arrive and if there is one thing Harry Smith does on a football pitch it’s score goals. He duly got his first half hatrick with goals on 10, 28 and 29 minutes to give the home team a flattering half time score.


HT 4-0


For the opening ten minutes of the second half the young lions were on the back foot as Clifton looked to get something out of the game, but Joe Moutell  and his defence stood firm somewhat fortuitous at times. At the other end good work by the midfield made sure the front two were still causing problems, with Harry Smith scoring again on 48 minutes and 52 minutes his fifth goal owed much to Luke Broadbent brilliant run and cross. The game was over as a contest and on 59 minutes Billy Farley toe poked in from 2 feet after good work again by L Broadbent, giving the final score a somewhat flattering 7-0 result.


FT 7-0


 Editor’s thoughts

 Neither Graham nor I can fault you today you gave 100% without really hitting top gear but won 7-0. You will play better in the future and not get a point, but that’s football.
