Goals: Hermod 3.
Friday Night fixture against inform new San Pellegrinos always looked a hard game and it didn’t disappoint. We started off well and had the better of the first half scoring both goals going 2 nil up at the break. The second goal was a classic with some beautiful inter play on the left side with Joe and Muzz for Hermod to slot home. Muzza getting an assist in both goals with Hermod’s scoring boots in hot form. Muzza also had a few good chances to increase the score but in the end we went 2-0 up at the break.
However San P’s showed a lot of character in the second half and battled hard never giving up even though we were the better technical team. With about 12 minutes to go San P’s scored from an own goal from unlucky Marriott miss hit. San P’s tails where up now and believed they could snatch a point. However we beefed up the middle of the park with Scottie playing in the centre midfield. It wasn’t too long before Hermod found some space on the left and scored a cracker with a fierce shot to seal the game for us.
Host of players had terrific games. Defence once again was outstanding with Marriott and Bertie solid in the centre able supported by Steph and Thomas D out wide. Centre pairing of Jim Rose and Aidan meant we were always going to dominate possession while Scottie and Joe having good games out wide. Richie, ,Andy B, Lionel and Adam all coming on and having solid games. While Muzza was strong and quick upfront providing a terrific outlet for Hermod. However
MOM was anonymous with Hermod getting the pundits. A hat-trick on his final game for the Spartans and what a way to go out. He will be sorely missed no doubt and getting a raucous Firehouse send off on a big Friday Night had by all. Mug of Day was sealed by Cowley with our last game of the season.
