'Young Scole 1st team beat highly rated league leaders'

Scole United Fc 2 V 1 Sheringham Fc

This week Scole welcomed league leaders & big spenders Sheringham to Ransome Avenue in a return to league action after last weeks County Cup games.
Scole were without several players and had 1 or 2 carrying knocks so following on from his previous strategy this season, manager Jon Abbott put his faith in some of the very promising youngsters in the club including 17 yr old new signing Bradley Hunt returning to Scole after playing many years at youth level from premier division Norwich Ceyms. The match day squad boasted 7 players still in their teenage years, 6 of which have come through the youth ranks of the club. This meant the average age of the squad this week was just under 20 years of age.
So this was going to be a big ask once again to get something from this game and it was made harder by Sheringham signing on the very highly rated Thurlow Nunn striker Jordan Rocastle on the day, who scored 4 on his previous visit here last season.
However Scole kicked off in good spirits and soon began to show that they wasn't here to make up the numbers. Indeed there wasn't anything to choose between the the sides until a rather dubious free kick was awarded to the 'Shannocks' in a dangerous position just outside the 18 yard box. Sheringham skipper Ben Boyce stepped up and planted an unstoppable strike just inside the right hand post to give them the lead. Scole didn't fold though and Sheringham had their keeper to thank after a one on one save from Connor Kerry and keeping out 2 good chances from Chris Collins-Reed & Ben Norton-Hugman.
At half-time Scole had to reshuffle with Collins-Reed returning to his centre back berth replacing the injured James Grant. New signing Hunt went up top and didn't take long to get involved in the action. With some good footwork and a decent trick he got himself into space to play in Kieran Manning who finished superbly to equalise. Young Dan Ryland was then replaced by Luke Hunt as Scole went in search of a winner. Keeper Kai Hines who was helping us out as Ben Buckmaster was unavailable pulled off a terrific reflex save when a deep but very accurate cross from left back Lawrence Brown found the on form Brad Hunt who scored Scole's second on his debut. A back to the walls defensive display was now called for and experienced Dave Coleman replaced the struggling Connor Kerry. Things got worse as Manning was reduced to just a standing role as he had taken a heavy knock on the knee and Scole had to really work hard and remain defensively disciplined to keep their lead, No matter what Sheringham threw at them though Scole remained resolute and saw the game through for a heroic victory that now puts them right in the hunt for the promotion places.
Another massive game next week when we are at home to new league leaders UEA. 14:00 Kick Off at Ransome Avenue.
