MATCH REPORT 5-11-22 COLLIERS WOOD v SHEERWATER

COLLIERS WOOD UTD 10-0 SHEERWATER

It was always going to be a difficult day for Sheerwater FC following the ramifications of Friday morning when the current management team upped and left with immediate effect. With twenty-four hours to kick off a whole raft of players decided they would rather not continue playing for the club.

So, due to some great work by skipper, Danilo Cadete and Secretary Trevor Wenden and others we started with eleven players plus one substitute who is a goalkeeper. Club President Sean Wallace took charge from the dugout and immense credit must go to everyone for putting in a shift for ninety minutes. Yes, we conceded ten goals and full credit to Colliers Wood Utd for a clinical performance with some quality goals.

The Sheers almost took the lead when a long throw from Andre Smith was flicked on by Webeley Silva-Assis and Callum Coen shot on target but Murphy cleared it off the line. Then from the next attack, Justin Davis tried his luck from twenty-five yards but it was straight at Josh Barnett who saved comfortably.

The hosts opened the scoring after sixteen minutes. Billy Oram crossed from the right and Harry Pointing saw his header saved by Ben Gamage but he was able to roll in the rebound six yards out. A great Sheers move almost saw an equaliser as Davis sprayed a ball out to Owen Sims who crossed on the volley first time to Assis who couldn’t make a proper contact from six yards out.

It was 2-0 on twenty minutes when a long ball forward was expertly controlled by Oram and he passed the ball in beating Gamage. Ex Sheer, Kieran Campbell got the third with a lovely finish after cutting in from the left and firing home with power and accuracy. Jenkins was the next to try his luck with a turn and vicious shot but Gamage made a fantastic save tipping it over via the crossbar. Jenkins next effort made it 4-0 before the break as he latched on to a through ball and finished well. Andre Smith came so close to scoring before the break when his strike came back off the bar.

Bearing in mind some of the players had not played together before and some were playing out of their usual position it was a mammoth effort. Heads didn’t drop or the discipline but as tiredness set in Colliers Wood took full advantage with six second half goals. A scramble in the area saw substitute, Kendall, place his effort past Gamage into the corner. Number six was fortunate as a free kick from Kendall took a deflection wrong footing Gamage. Kendall completed his hat-trick to make it seven with a composed finish. Jenkins, who was a threat all game scored number eight with a twist and turn followed by a right footed effort. Another substitute, Ali Fofanah beat Gamage from 18 yards to make it nine and a close range finish from Pires completed the rout near the end.

Danilo Cadete fired just wide from a free kick and Chris Machay almost scored a beauty with a chip that was inches over with the keeper beaten.

Thanks to Colliers Wood for their kind words afterwards and once again big pat on the back to Sean Wallace and all the players for their show of loyalty.
