Game Highlights


3 Mins - Great work from Short down the wing. His cross found Thomas whose first time shot crashed back off the bar

4 Mins - More pressure from Smihtswood down the right from Else ending in a cross to Rooke whose shot just cleared the bar

22 Mins - GOAL 1-0 More great work down the right from Else. His cross found Anderson who powered his shot past the keeper

24 Mins - Shirley Athletics first real chance is cleared off the line by Sayer

25 Mins - GOAL 2-0 Another excellent move wide, this time Thomas providing the ammunition to Anderson who slotted home for his second of the game

26 Mins - Short involved in a great move ending in him trying to lob the keeper and winning his side a corner

26 Mins - GOAL 3-0 From the resulting corner Thomas crossed for Wilkins to bury in the net

27 Mins - GOAL 4-0 Sayer corner whipped in for Evans to tower above the defence and beat the keeper with a powerful header

28 Mins - GOAL 5-0 A manic 6 minutes is completed when Sayer turns provider again with a neat cross for Anderson to tap in for his hat-trick

32 Mins - Short turns on the style with a great chip which bounces back off the bar

34 Mins - Anderson's turn to turn on the flair as he megs the defender and crosses for Short whose shoots just over the bar

42 Mins - Anderson is put through and appears to beat the off-side trap, He keeps his cool and powers the ball in to the top corner, no chance for the keeper and a fantastic move. He turns to see the linesman's flag up ruling out the goal

46 Mins - Smithswood start positively as Anderson cuts inside the defence and curls a shot only inches wide of the beaten keeper

71 Mins - Short breaks through the defence. He rounds the keeper and is about to score when a last ditch tackle puts the ball out for a corner

77 Mins - The heavens unleash an absolute downpour which makes the final 13 minutes heavy going but Smithswood still push on for more goals

87 Mins - GOAL 6-0 A collectors item. Ryder and Harris play a great one-two on the half way line. Harris puts Ryder through and he calmly slots the ball under the keeper


Man of the Match: The whole team were excellent all game but one player was really on it today. He terrorised the defence and was clinical in front of goal. He walked away with a hat-trick but came close to getting 5 or 6. Congratulations to Aaron Anderson
