Unbeaten league rivals Madisons were next up today in what was on paper our toughest test to date.
Today was simply our best performance for a while probably ever as we swept aside our opponents never giving them a moments rest.
From the off we harassed them at every given second and an early corner gave us our goal our fast start deserved. Curran hit an out swinger which was met by a thunderous head from skipper O’Donnell which nearly shattered the post, the scramble to clear was met 35 yards out by a magnificent pure strike from Ryan Smith on the volley striking it so sweet the ball smashed into the net for a quite unbelievable goal 0-1.
Our pressing all over was a joy to watch and it was the ever relentless Sean Phillips who forced a mistake with this pressure, their defender panicked and played a short back pass back to the keeper Stu Hardman capitalised and finished neatly to make it 0-2.
For the remaining half we stood firm at the back led by Easterbrook and O’Donnell who were superbly supported by the impressive Sam Yates and Edgey, while also terrorising up top with the impressive trio of Thomas,Hardman and Phillips playing in a 4,3,3 causing mayhem at will while Midfield trio of Curran,Leslie and Smith built up play and put in 110% covering every blade of grass.
The second half started with a bang after superb work by Edgey down the left he cleverly played in Curran who spotting O’Donnell in the centre simply squared a pass to him and the skipper placed into the net to put us further in front 0-3.
The fourth wasn’t far away as Stu Hardman after pressing their defence finished expertly to make it 0-4.
It was great to see a team who had thought they would turn up and beat us become so deflated so quickly and for us to show no mercy and be on the ball the entire match.
Substitute Philly Lennon came on and got straight into the action firing a great ball to Stu who was then fouled inside the box, Stu taking the penalty finished superbly and collecting another hat trick to send us 0-5 in front.
That’s how it finished and a quite stunning performance which wills surely send warnings out to the rest of the division.
