'Scole beat the high flying Stags'

By

Scole United FC 3 V 0 Mundford FC

Scole welcomed a bouyant Mundford side, who were on a good run of form and sitting second in the league, to Ransome Avenue this week. And after last weeks comprehensive cup defeat the home side needed to up their performance to get anything out of the game.
A couple of line up and tactical changes saw the return of Reece Lanchester at centre back and James Grant into centre midfield. James Harrison's pace was deemed the answer up front and 16 yr old new signing Luke Hunt took a place on the bench.
Scole started the game with purpose and carried out manager Jon Abbott's instructions to the letter. High pressing and quick forward balls to utilise the pace of their front three was the order of the day and this restricted Mundford's usual game. If the opposition's bench were anything to go by the frustration got to Mundford and they began to run out of ideas as Scole worked their socks off and scrapped for every ball. The lead game when a great interception and forward pass from Ashley Baxter set Kieran Manning off down the left flank. He turned inside and let fly with a shot. The Mundford keeper appeared to have it covered but fumbled the save and Harrison had gambled by following up and put the rebound into the empty net to give Scole the lead. The'Yellow's' carried on the game plan and although Mundford had the lions share of possession they didn't really trouble Ben Buckmaster in the Scole goal.
In the second half, as expected the 'Stags' came out fired up but this opened them up for the counter attack and a deep cross from left back Lawrence Brown was superbly finished by Connor Kerry to double Scole's lead. Injury to experienced Nathan Ireland bought youngster Ollie Boardman on but this did nothing to change the flow of the game and Scole were on the front foot. Kerry came close with a one on one and Harrison hit one high after a Kerry run was stopped with what could easily been a penalty. Kerry did get his second with a superbly crafted self made goal following a twisty run on the right which gave Scole their third and made the game safe. Harrison who had worked himself to a standstill up front as a lone striker was replaced by Hunt for his debut and late on Harry Rollingson came on for Manning.
A well won 3 points and a deserved clean sheet which showed that Scole can definitely have a say at the top of division one this season as long as they continue to work as hard as they did today. Worth mentioning as well is that the average age of Scole's squad today was just over 20 yrs of age which bodes well for the future.
Next week the 1st team are away at Hindringham in another division one game. The reserves have a big game at home to promotion rivals Belton.
