In a game were Ellington were expected to win, they made hard work of it for the first 45 mins. Ellington went 1-0 when Liam Thompson managed to find Jason Riches in space who cooly slotted it home. then a big surprise, a mix up in defence seen Ellington put through the Vettic striker who made it 1-1. it looked as though we were going into the break at 1-1 as we missed a few chances, but somehow Brent Aisbitt managed to find some space after beating the offside trap to make it 2-1. Assist was from Liam Thompson again.
Jay Little made a great save to keep the Vettic from grabbing a second.
2-1 at half time and a good chance for Ellington to sort themselves out, and did we. 8 goals in the second half.
Shortly after the break Brent Aisbitt managed to net his second and third goals. His second an individual effort and his third was set up by Martin Humble. Skipper Tin got his second assist of the day when he set up Jason Riches for his second and Ellingtons fifth.
Liam Thompson showed why Alnwick have been interested lately when he finally got on the scoresheet. Substitute Richard Stobbart who had come on and missed a couple of chances finally got his first goal of the season which am sure will give him some extra confidence going into the next few weeks. Liam Thompson again with the assist. Another lad who had just come back on was Dean Shortt, but in his unfamiliar position up top. He made an immediate impact with 2 goals in the final ten mins to put us 9-1 up. Richard Stobbart grabbed an assist there too. Finally there was time for Jason Riches to grab his hat trick and cap of a great performance from himself. Liam Thompson with another assist and a well deserved man of the match.
in summary, we need to learn to take weaker teams serious from the start, but like a say you can only play what is in front of you. Cup game on Saturday and i can’t wait to try get a good Cup run.
