Stoke Climsland 0 – 7 Premier Sixes

P6s met at the school at 12.15 with a depleted squad of 12 players from a possible 25 that have signed on, many of P6’s huge summer signings were unable to play due to work commitments, holidays and squad rotation policies (it was unfair to contact a couple of players at this late stage that had already been told that they would have the match off.)

The A30 was rammed with bank holiday traffic and the team didn’t arrive at Stoke Climsland until 2.40, 10 minutes after the original kick off time. An understanding ref and opposition gave P6s 5 minutes to throw on their kit and get down to the pitch. Ringrose had to wear an 8-Mile style t-shirt in goal as he forgot his goalie top. The majority of the players had not touched the ball (Steve-O kicked the practise ball into the hedge and there was no time before kick off to get it back) before kick off, we really couldn’t have looked any more like a bunch of jokers.

Despite knowing that Stoke Climsland were probably the worst team in Duchy Football (based on last season's league table), P6s struggled to break them down for the first 20 minutes, it took the team a while to settle after the poor preparation for the game. Stoke Climsland had the first shot of the match, well it was more of a lump up the pitch, with Albino putting the ball a foot over the cross bar from around 40 yards. Albino was Stoke Climsland's best player; he had the longest kick in the team, but had very little footballing ability.

After 20 minutes Dan Parsonage fell over his feet and could not believe that the ref (on his huge debut) gave a pen. Tom Currah put the ball in a nice divot and slotted it into the corner, the keeper got a hand to it, but Currah has strong thighs; the ball was just too powerful.

Stoke Climsland’s heads dropped. P6s started stroking the ball around and after hitting the post a few times, having a goal disallowed (a nice volley from Probert) and some wayward finishing, Probert finished well to make it 2-0.

Pete Downton was making a good debut in midfield alongside the tireless Sam Leamy and there was some good link up play from Panter and Steve-O. Tony **** was thriving in his captain’s role, organising the defence to good affect.

At half time it was decided to drop the diamond and play a little wider with huge gaps in the opposition’s flanks.

Stoke Climsland started brightly but it only took a number of minutes for P6s to start dominating again. It wasn’t long before Probert and Leamy were rewarded with goals that put P6s four up which took the game out of Stoke Climsland’s reach. Tom Currah also hit the angle with a great header.

STOP – PRENTICE TIME. Big Nathan came up from the back to bag 2 goals from Leamy corners. Although both crosses bounced about 5 times before Natedogg bundled them in, they were not dealt with by the oppositions defence.

With P6 firmly in the driving seat and 6-0 up it was time for Parsonage to produce the goal of the match with 5 minutes left on the clock. Sam Leamy crossed the ball, perfect for Parsonage to leap into the air and scissor kick it into the net, what a hit son, what a hit, take a bow.

The opposition went down to 9 men for the last 5 minutes with 2 injuries. Unfortunately P6s could not capitalise despite about 5 goal mouth scrambles.

This was a good result with all things taken into account, well done lads.

MoM goes to Parsonage for his brilliant goal and link up play with Currah and Probert,
