Sticker Reserves 4 Morwenstow 1
Sticker Reserves at last get some points on the board by defeating Morwenstow 4-1 and they thoroughly deserved the win. Sticker started on the front foot from the off and put the Morwenstow defence under fierce pressure and Sticker scored the opening goal when a superb ball from Dan Hocking split the defence and his namesake Tom Hocking latched onto the ball and ran forward with the defence in his wake and measured his shot past the onrushing keeper. 1-0. Sticker were growing in confidence more and more and utilising all areas of the pitch and whenever Morwenstow did get forward the found the Sticker defence resolute, led by a commanding performance once again from Jack Boardman and he was ably assisted by Ewan Warren, Aidan Lees and Tom Boardman. The second goal when it came was a cracker scored directly from a free kick by Dan Hocking who bent it around the defensive wall and into the top corner of the goal. 2-0. Sticker added a third when Aidan lees this time the provider who sent a superb diagonal ball and found James Martin who powered the ball home with his head. 3-0. H/T.
The second half started with Morwenstow determined to get back into the game and Sticker equally determined to not let them so the game was somewhat of a stalemate with Sticker making use of a long ball tactic rather than short ball passing but with that tactic they allowed Morwenstow to have more of the ball and finally got a dubious penaly when Morgan Coxhead came out to dive at the feet of the oncoming Striker who dived theatrically in the area to gain a penalty. After consulting the Sticker linesman awarded the kick which had to be taken twice but successfully converted. 3-1. Sticker made some well needed substitutions to bring on fresh legs and finally started to open up the Morwenstow once again could only add one further goal scored again by Tom Hocking as the away sides keeper made some outstanding one on one stops. 4-1. F/T. Roy, Martin and the whole squad will be buzzing after this result as it was richly deserved and we hope its a springboard for some more results.
