Werrington U10 1 Stamford U10 7
SCINTILLATING Stamford swept aside Werrington with a dazzling display of skillful football and a relentless, ruthless work rate for their sixth consecutive win.
A Dan Kettleborough hat-trick and a brace apiece for Sam Jordan and Jack Darby overwhelmed a determined, hard working and skillfull opposition who were unlucky to meet Stamford in such an unforgiving mood.
With a strong wind behind them, Werrington harried Stamford for the first 10 minutes but the inspired defensive pairing of Luke Toomey and Aaron Altham staved off their efforts aided by astute cover from Darby and Caius Headley.
After weather Werringtons’ early storm, Stamford picked up the pace and their pressure paid off when a fine Darby pass found Kettleborough who slammed home from close range for the lead.
A great Altham ball then found Jordan who beat two defenders before setting up Kettleborough for number two.
Darby jinked past a defender to score the third as Stamford took control.
In the second half Darby and Altham combined to set up Kettleborough to thump home his third.
Jordan hit his 10th goal of the season with an angled shot before Darby rattled the bar with a good strike. Jordan hit number six with an overhead shot before Altham found Darby who finished neatly for 7-0.
William Tilbrook’s late strike deserved more than to be a consolation goal for Werrington.
