Hants Trophy 2nd round

Brading 5

ECS 2

A superb first half performance saw us comfortably through
to the 3rd round this afternoon at Whippingham.

With George Colson cup-tied , Harris Payne returned to the side and we welcomed back
 the England International beach footballers Caymen Collins and Jake Younie.

We started the game very well playing some excellent football.
We took the lead when superb link up play between Josh Younie and Valer led to the ball being turned in to their own goal by the ECS defender.
It was 2-0 soon after when Josh’s superb cross was headed in at the back post by Valer.
We were playing some superb stuff and it came as no suprise when we scored again.
The hard working Oliver Wilson chased down a long ball and was pulled down by the keeper.
Valer drove home the penalty and made it 3-0.

We had a let off when Will Hunt pushed a long range strike onto the post and their forward somehow missed the target from 6 yards.

We started the second half with another quick goal as Aaron Burford rounded the keeper and finished well.
We then lost our way for a while and they scored two very good headers to give them some hope.

We then settled a bit and Matt Bennett’s superb through ball found Valer who went on to complete his hat-trick.
A good performance, especially 1st half, considering we haven’t played for several weeks.

The front three were amazing first half and their work rate set the tone for the team. T

he midfield trio all had fine games and broke up their play and set up many attacking chances for us.

All round we were very good first half and to be fair to keep that tempo for 90 would have been hard.

The fact we settled and made the game safe was very pleasing.
Team - Hunt, James Phipps, Sam Knowles, Luke Hitchcox, Josh Younie,
Harris Payne, Matty Oatley, Jordan Cook, Wilson, Burford and Vale.
Subs- Bennett, Collins and Younie (all used).
