'Josh Lucraft hits a Hat-trick to maintain 1st Team's unbeaten run....'

Scole United Fc 4 v 1 St Andrews Fc (match kindly sponsored by Sarahs Gardening Services)

This week Scole United welcomed long term Premier Division members St Andrews to Ransome Avenue for their latest Anglian Combination league game. Missing 4 of the younger members of the squad due to holidays and a local music festival Scole called up Harry Browne & Harry Brookes from the reserves, young Luke Hunt came in for his 1st competitive game of the season and Nathan Russell plays recovering from a pre-season injury.
The game began in the late summer sunshine and both sides were cagey in the opening period. Chances were few and far between and the game was playing like a pre season friendly. This was until young midfielder Josh Lucraft decided to liven up proceedings after picking up a pass from Ben Norton-Hugman. Taking the ball in his stride he turned his defender and let fly from the edge of the box beating the keeper to put the home side 1 up.
Following the interval Scole came out with much more purpose and almost immediately doubled their lead with James Harrison scoring from a Lucraft assist. St Andrews pulled one back after centre back Adam Solley was harshly adjudged to have handballed following the ball being blasted at him from a couple of yards. From then on in it became the Josh Lucraft show. Picking up the ball on the right hand side, he drove into the St Andrews area on the by-line taking on a couple of defenders, he sent a low hard cross across the front of the goal but didn't quite connect properly and as the keeper dived the ball somehow went inside him and ended up in the back of the net. 7 minutes later his hat-trick was completed with the goal of the game. Driving forwards in the centre of the pitch he hit a screamer from 20 yards out high into the top corner of the goal giving the St Andrews keeper no chance at all.
The visitors did get another penalty with Solley once again penalised for hand ball but this time round the striker hit the cross bar and Scole ended the game as deserved winners and up into second place in the league standings. A brilliant start to the league campaign for the promoted side.

Man of the match: Josh Lucraft for his 3 goals & assist. (picked by match sponsor Sarah Boulter of 'Sarah's Gardening Services')

Next game is a Mummery Cup tie next Saturday against Wroxham Reserves. 14:00 kick off at Ransome Avenue.
