Scorers: Parsons, Tolcher, Melisse
On this fine Saturday afternoon the 6’s were desperate for a win. Despite an unbeaten run (that has others clubs in the SAL whispering the word “invincibles”) this was a game that was a must win, considering the record number of draws up to this point. Due to Olly Tolcher’s particularly potent sperm there was a new face up front (Reno) along with Frazier coming back from an injury and Liam “Hunger” Payne slotting nicely in to centre back. (Incidentally Dan Ware is away as the court order came through that prevents him from coming within 20 yards of Ditmar. It’s not a nice situation for the rest of the squad to be in but “grooming” within the squad will not be tolerated). We also had a new keeper, Furio’s brother, Giuseppe Falzone, joined us from the “other side”….and on catching the ball and kicking it straight in the warm up was instantly hailed as the 6’s savior.
The first half was all AP. Falzone looked sharp and in control. Link up from the back to the front was slick, everyone keeping the ball on the floor and moving it around nicely. Fraizer showed his class and coolness on the ball causing the oppo problems down the left whilst Frenchman Reno put himself about on the right and gave us much needed bite. Paddy, when he stopped day dreaming about himself, linked up play as ever. Parsons, Conlon and Serkan were solid as Simon Tolcher’s stomach and Payne and fore-mentioned Tolcher had no problems at all at the back.
Ditmar was “keeping it real” at the back, pushing forward and showing mad tekkers and generally being peng. (Ref http://www.urbandictionary.com) Toby was strong on the left and soon enough the opportunities came. The first , Parsons gathered the ball from outside the box nicely and sweetly struck the ball, Lampard style, it was majestic, beautiful and what some might class as a “worldie”.….it was a tragedy that it stuck the backside of one of their defenders and rebounded at an angle to beat the keeper. A classy second followed as Shaw-Morris collected a pass from Serkan, cut in from the left and squared for Reno to knock in from just inside the 6 yard box.
The second half saw Waldrum and Liam Payne on and with AP kicking up hill we had to dig in a bit more. 2-0 is a dangerous scoreline to sit on and all were aware that the next goal would be the most important. Despite the pitch becoming a bit of a boggy mess everyone rallied well. Old Stationers didn’t really have any chances and 6’s cemented their win with what is becoming a familiar routine. A corner was whipped in right onto the keeper allowing Simon Tolcher to leap like a salmon and smash home a header for the third. The jump was a lot like Ronaldo’s last week…in a way.
A good win and now to push on for promotion. Tough games ahead but we are more than capable of doing it.
