Robin Hood Colts 2 - AFC Kirk Hallam 5

Normal service resumed

Having had the disappointment of defeat at home to Rolls Royce Leisure in the last match, the team were keen to get back on track in the rearranged match against Robin Hood Colts, which was previously abandoned in blizzard conditions after three minutes a few weeks before.

With a return to the familiar 3-1-3-1, the lads went straight at it from kick off. Ben Morley, sitting in midfield, behind Finley O'Neill as the striker linking up well, the former running clear, to see his early effort narrowly miss. Caleb Topley, in goal, a virtual spectator for the first ten minutes as Kirk Hallam enjoying almost one way traffic. Eventually, the pressure paid off, with Morley running through to neatly finish a one on one with the goalkeeper. Minutes later, Keane Eyre was unlucky to hit the crossbar with a great effort. Harris Khan was a constant threat down the right wing, while Joel Ogden was moving the ball around nicely on the left, bringing others into play and feeding Finley O'Neill and Ben Morley almost at will. Ogden was rewarded for his efforts when Ben Morley went round three defenders to put a low ball into the box for Ogden to calmly make it 2-0 with a simple tap in. Morley was then unlucky to hit the post, followed by Finley O'Neill having a shot go narrowly wide. On 20 minutes, Owen Robinson, Richard Frost and Emin Alcin joined the action and slotted straight in. With two minutes remaining in the half, Robin Hood Colts managed to break down their left and went through to make it 2-1 just before half time. Owen Robinson, Harley Rose, Lewis Smith and Liam Evans between them having little other to do throughout the half.

The second half started with Robin Hood Colts having a lot more of the possession and hitting Kirk Hallam with wave after wave of pressure, which on the whole was dealt with brilliantly by the back three. Harley Rose pulling off an awesome goal saving tackle, followed by a great save by Caleb Topley to keep the score at 2-1. Following the second round of player rotations, Finley O'Neill, Liam Evans and Keane Eyre rejoining the action, it became one way traffic as Kirk Hallam had the advantage of kicking slightly downhill. At one point, the passing had become so good, there were 10 consecutive passes before an attempt on goal. Richard Frost and Emin Alcin linking up well before Morley again tormented the Robin Hood defence and set up Finley O'Neill to make it 3-1. Keane Eyre narrowly missed the chance to make it 4-1 with a close range shot saved by the goalkeeper. Morley then got onto a goal kick from the Robin Hood goalkeeper to fire in from the edge of the box for four. He then followed this up with a 20 yarder for his fifth hat trick and 35th goal of the season. The lads then switched off for the last few seconds as Robin Hood Colts went up the other end straight from kick off and scored a consolation to make it 5-2 at full team. Other results saw Kirk Hallam go two points clear at the top with other teams having games in hand.

All in all, the passing football today was absolutely amazing. The lads have found their groove again and look forward to the final stages of the season.

Next week sees the boys travel to Southwell for another away match.
