St Peter’s put five past Eight Bells

HSCL Division One

St Peter’s 5

Eight Bells Hatfield 1

ST PETER’S thumped Eight Bells Hatfield in their first home game since October 30, 2010.

The fixture was hastily re-scheduled after an earlier cancelation and the Saints took full advantage.

Joel Norris’s early effort gave visiting goalkeeper Gary Statham no chance and debut boy Jermaine Davey added an excellent second.

A third goal arrived before the break when a left wing cross from Norris was turned into their own net via a comical mix up between the visiting ‘keeper and one of his defenders.

The Saints continued where they left off after the break and added two further goals through Norris and a first of the season from Sam Pooley, following excellent play by Jack Rees.

Not even a last minute consolation by Jamie Caswell could hide manager Dave Whitehead’s delight at a victory that lifted the Saints to fifth in the table.

This Saturday the Saints travel to league leaders Buntingford Town in the Aubrey Cup (KO 1.30pm).

St Peter’s: Barnes; Cox (Mardle), Carman, Wiltshire, Rees, Costain, Beswick (Kennedy), Taylor, Pooley (Hood-Wright); Davey, Norris. Sub not used: Savory.
