Home league match played on 22 January 2012.
Kicked off at 10:30 AM

Manor welcomed last weeks opponents Shalford Social to Cove Green. They lined up similarly, however made a slight change to accommodate the absence of Cobby and the return of Nicky B from a ban. They showed good passing football early and this lead to a goal from Luke. A good through ball from Jason allowed Luke space at the edge of the box. He calmly hammered the ball into the net and took manor into the lead. Manor had to wait a little while until they struck again, a cross from Moo allowed Luke to header the ball past the keeper and extend Manors lead.

Matt struck just before the half time whistle after a good pass from John, Manor were 3-0 up going into half time,

A change at the back saw Moo being substituted for Nick into central defence. Manors dominance continued in the second half striking in the 51st when Jason made a good run and crossed the ball in for Ben who calmly slotted the ball past the charging keeper. A quick substitution saw Jamie replace Jason at left mid. Luke completed his hatrick in the 62nd after a good through ball from Matt allowed him to fire the ball past the keeper once again and Manor took a comfortable 5-0 lead.

The game continued in Manors favour when they grabbed 3 goal in quick succession, in the 69th and 2 superb strikes from Matt in the 72nd and Liam in the 75th sealed the game in Manors favour with an 8-0 lead. Dan Hatch replaced Luke and after some shuffling he settled at left back.

John also struck quickly when in the 77th he latched onto Liams huge TOE PUNT  and took advantage of the 1 on 1 situation with Manors 9th.

Mabbers and John struck in the 83rd and 84th followed by an 87th minute penalty decision, after discussion* Azza stepped up and slotted the penalty into the bottom left hand corner and finally Ben striking in the 89th to seal the  13-0 victory

Manor face a hard fixture next week as  second place Queen Victoria visit Cove Green. Manor with a 1 point advantage and 2 games in hand aswell as a superior goal difference of 11.
