BSTFC Reserves vs Highridge United Reserves

By

Highridge hit for six by the Hornets

On a damp but playable JC the Reserves welcomed Highridge United Reserves. Highridge have started pretty well so far this season and appeared to have a well balanced squad of youth and experienced players.

Both teams observed a minutes silence before the game started for Armistice day.

Here is how the Hornets lined up:-

Potter (J), Williams, Amin, Gosling, Collis-Pritchard, Whiting, Sykes, Pyett, Cornock, Platts and Bridgman with Dawes, Thickett and Hussain on the bench.

BSTFC kicked down the slope in the first halve and the game got off to a flyer with the hornets on the front foot from the start and we were awarded a penalty when Platts got to the ball first in the box and the keeper bundled him over. Bridgman stepped up and slotted the penalty into the far left corner with precision and it was a cracking start for the Reserves.

On a wet pitch it was inevitable some slide tackles would go in and the referee made his stance known by awarding a yellow card to the opposition player for a mis-timed slide tackle just after we went 1-0 up.

It should have been 2-0 up shortly after this as Sykes cleverly got in on goal but pushed his shot wide of the right post. It wasn't to matter though as just a minute later Platts found Sykes again on the wing and Sykes powered a shot into the top corner which was a very good finish.

Highridge came forward but were being dealt with by the Bradley Stoke defence, Amin and Gosling were winning headers and Collis-Pritchard and Williams would cover if the centre backs didn't win the header. Chances were few and far between for Highridge.

The Hornets kept creating chances with Sykes having further opportunities and Williams in an advanced position put his shot narrowly wide.

Half time came and the message from Burch was clear, that we had been playing well and should have been more up but that the next goal was crucial and would decide the outcome of the game.

Burch made a substitution bringing Whiting off who had a good halve and he put Hussain up front with Bridgman and Platts the most furthest forward supporting Hussain.

Shortly after half time we were 3-0 up as a Bridgman corner was put deep into the box and appeared to be going out of play only for Gosling to hook it back into the box and Cornock made no mistake from close range when the Highridge defence appeared to stop.

That was probably the all-important goal and BSTFC went on to dominate the rest of the game as Highridge's heads dropped. Williams made way for Dawes and Sykes came off with Whiting returning to the pitch.

The fourth goal was scored by Pyett as he found himself taking advantage of some sloppy defending from another ball into the box and he shot high into the goal to make it 4-0 before dropping to right back.

Whiting and Platts will feel they could have scored goals as well with Platts missing a one on one and Whiting hitting the post as the Hornets continued to go in search of more goals.

Platts would turn provider though as he set up Hussain for the 5th and Hussain then scored another to make it 6-0.

Bridgman was also looking dangerous as he nearly carved an opening when he took on Highridge on his own but he couldn't quite find an opening.

The game finished 6-0.

It was a cracking performance from the Reserves who probably could of won by a bigger margin if they were more clinical in front of goal.

Burch found it tough this week to award the MOTM and he wanted to highlight that Pyett, Cornock and Gosling all stood out but he gave the MOTM to captain Amin for another strong defensive display.

Its Bendix next week!

COYH!
