It was testament to the defence and midfield that the score was only 3-0 after half an hour, with James Parnell using all of his experience and nous on the left of defence to marshal the opposition winger. SBC pulled one back shortly afterwards. A lofted ball into the area was met with a rasping volley from Josh Vickers which the keeper did well to tip over. The resulting corner was a superb delivery from Noah Crump, and following a scramble, fox in the box Ollie O’Meakin pounced first to divert the ball past the onrushing keeper. As half-time approached it gave SBC the chance to regroup and try a change of formation – Jordi acting as a centre forward with Will partnering with Patrick, Pete and Ollie at the back. The second half started poorly for SBC with a couple of quick-fire goals putting them further behind. Credit to the lads themselves, they never once let their heads drop and forced the issue, with Noah’s pace and guile causing problems. Josh covered a lot of ground as he fought for every ball and Jay Vickers brought a calmness in defensive midfield, keeping the ball ticking along to set up attacks and bringing an all-round handsomeness to the game.
