Whites V Manorcroft
Best performance this season
With just 4 games left this season every point counts, so going to play Manorcroft who are bottom of the table but imo should be a lot higher as the start of the season they had player problems not fulfilling fixtures which is a shame as they played fantastic against us but we was to strong in all departments showing great character skills and desire to not let this title challenge slip in any way.
All started great for us in the first minute when a through ball to George B on our left from Ali and with the keeper advancing he slotted it past him for 1-0, this settled the boys and with possession pretty even we received a corner in the 10th minute to which George B whipped it in and the other George got in front of there CB to smash it in 2-0, straight from the KO we stole the ball and Alf played in Samim there gk came out but his blunder gave Samim an easy tap in 3-0 11 minutes, that was the end of the scoring for the half as Manorcroft made it hard for us to gather any more momentum.
Second half we went out and dominated from the whistle with high press Manorcroft had no answers and when we had the ball we kept it with some great passing and interchanges, what we practiced all year was very evident and even the parents of Manorcroft complimented our play which was very pleasing and makes my job easier, we went 4-0 up in the 2nd minute when another corner whipped in from George this time Alf got in front at the near post to flick it over the gk, still Manorcroft came at us to there credit and still the defence held firm 6 minutes into the half Samim grabbed his second when a Milan cross was smashed against the bar only to fall at his feet again and toe poked it in.
I think this time Manorcroft accepted defeat as there heads started to go down and this was made even more painful when on 22 when Alf chipped it to George H who smartly chipped the keeper for his second, with minutes remaining Manorcroft received a penalty and for once no one complained but it was saved by Josh who dived full length to his right and palmed the ball away from the corresponding clearance George B grabbed his second he cleverly went round 2 and let fly with his left foot from the edge of the area top corner bound.
Points: refreshing to see what we practice paying off in matches we passed effortlessly and kept the ball easily 3 matches left we need 4 points from these 3 to win the title especially great when Sandgate only gained a point at Kew.
