Venue: Brockwell Park

St. Matthew’s 11 Bec Utd. 0

After a weather-enforced two-week break, the boys were eager to get back onto the pitch and show their stuff. After some brilliant performances in recent matches, we felt that sooner or later we were going to get our just rewards, and this Saturday saw it happen. Our first clean sheet of the season mixed with some clinical finishing, resulted in an 11-0 thrashing of old adversaries Bec Utd. As has been the pattern this season, the goals were spread throughout the team, showing the strength in depth we now have. From the kick off the boys pressed and battled, not giving the opposition room to play, and within 10 minutes their hard work paid off, with the first goal coming after good play down the right. The team showed their determination throughout the game and even with the result secure at half time, they didn’t give an inch until the final whistle.
