Home of the Saints

First Team Win at Home

April 6th, 2019

The Saints beat a depleted Machynlleth FC side 8-0.

The goals were scored by Jack Biggs(3), Liam McNally, Matty Tong, Greg Preece, Will Goodwin and Harry Hooper.

We started sloppy and could of been a couple of goals down if it wasn’t for keeper Tom Bevan, the one a great save when the Machynlleth number¬†9¬†was in on goal.

After a few words from the sidelines we upped the tempo and soon went 1-0 ahead from the impressive Liam McAnally who headed in a rebound.

Top scorer Jack Biggs took centre stage scoring with his head to double our lead (2-0), before netting two more which were both flagged offside. Biggs did score his second just before the break to put us 3-0 ahead, that was also his 30th goal of the season in all competitions.

Ht 3-0

‘Mach’defended well for the next fifteen minutes but were opened up when Callum Maddy slipped a ball through for Matty Tong to run on to, the striker scoring from the edge of the box to make it 4-0.

Biggs finally got his hat-trick scoring from close range for 5-0, a well worked goal saw striker Greg Preece finish well with a first time shot for 6-0.

Captain Will Goodwin started a move out on the left, after several passes it found Tong on the right he crossed the ball in first time to Goodwin who smashed it home from 16 yards for 7-0.

Youngster Harry Hooper showed quick feet to get on a loose ball to finish off the scoring blasting past the busy Mach keeper.

Ft 8-0

To their credit the visitors battled from start to finish with several first teamers missing but ran out of steam in the second period. I thought we over played it early on instead of getting the ball forward quicker, once that was sorted we played well.

A second clean sheet for the defence and a special mention to keeper Tom Bevan who pulled off an incredible save on 70 minutes to deny the visitors a goal. Youngster Liam McAnally had another excellent game but it’s hard not to give the man of the match award to hat-trick man Jack Biggs.
