BURRIDGE AFC 3 - 1 PRIORY


Saturday 4th February 2006
Allotment Road


It was off then it was on again. Rather than just lose a game, Burridge scraped together a team and produced a performance as thorough and determined as they had all season. The first half was dominated by Burridge who were first to all second balls and appeared the hungrier - Carl Godwin unlucky to see his twenty five yard strike cannon off the bar, but they had the lead in the first half. Luke Sanderson looped forward and Jamie Hewitt side stepped the keeper before rolling home from a tight angle.

Priory - obviously fresh from a half time roasting started the second period brightly and hit Hewitt's upright after a corner, but Burridge with the tenacious pair of Mark Reeves and captain Ross Bryant were first to all loose balls. It appeared nothing was on when Carl Godwin cut in from the left, but he unleashed a twenty five yard thunder bolt that swerved away from the keeper into the net via a post. Burridge pressed on and Lee Wood found himself one on one, dropped his shoulder leaving the keeper grounded before stroking home number three. There was time for a consolation for Priory, but victory belonged to Burridge.

4-4-2: Kristian Hewitt, Luke Sanderson, Keith Collier, Ben Wilson, Mark Sanderson, Carl Godwin, Ross Bryant, Mark Reeves, Rich Allan (Tim O'Brien), Jamie Hewitt, Lee Wood

Remember: if you want clean boots, bring them Wednesday. At present Mark Reeves its my first client, and you'll see the fruit of my craftmanship come Wednesday should you want to enjoy beautifully clean soccer cleats!

PS: Don't forget Richie's training money! Don't take his good nature for granted See you all on Wednesday.

Best display of the season so far.We bossed all areas of the pitch, took our goals well and defended resolutely. Well done to Mark for getting a team together at such short notice, Froudie for getting some players in and the players for producing a great performance.

Great result fellas on saturday, and well done to the new guys that gave up their saturday for the love of football.

Such a shame our season start was so shocking otherwise things may have been different at this time of the season, but to consolidate this year and advance next term is a very respectable goal (take note saints fans).

Hopefully see you all at training, and always nice to see a familiar name on top of the hot shot list!

Mark Sanderson said...

Yeah, and Graeme Souness thought he had injury problems. Burridge were missing the Schwodettes (who called me last night to pass on their amazed congrats), The Andrews & Dykey, Frodo Froudie, Dave 'Tin man' Hopkins, Greg 'you won't like it if I'm angry' Baker, and Richard Allan ...(what's his surname?) and Dean 'runs into the' Wall.

Dykey said...

Well done lads. Was very pleased when i called mark to hear the result and i hope he passe don my good wishes before and after the game. although a long way away always thinking of ya.

well 5 left that is 15 points in th bag should see us finish nicely on a high.

PS Dyke same goals as both swaddlers put together!?!?!?!?!?!?! and as "goal machine" allan
