VERY GOOD

Eden’s underlined their position in the table with this impressive victory.  A change of formation saw Ted Legget and Thomas Drayton drop into defence. This gave Sean Bruce room to utilise his range of passing to good effect, whilst playing in a holding midfield role.


This new system seemed to pay off for Eden’s as they enjoyed the majority of possession. Stuart Ayling showed some neat touches up front, his hold up play enabling the rest of Eden’s forwards to create a host of chances. Josh Collins opened the scoring, Charles Elford added the second, finishing off a deflected cross/shot from. Josh Collins would go on to complete another impressive display with a fine hat-trick.


72 United will feel disappointed by this result. They were without a couple of their key players coming in to game and it showed. Eden’s were able to carve open Unied’d defence in a manner that they hadn’t experienced before. Dom Mortimer offered them a ray of hope, when the hard working striker scored a great solo goal.

This made the scoreline 3-1 and they went on to create more chances, but were unable to convert them. Keeper, Tom Wingfield made some fine saves, he will be frustrated by having conceded five, but really there was little he could do as several of the shots that went past him via a deflection.


There is often controversy when these teams meet. So it proved in this match when Eden’s were awarded penalty. However, the resulting spot kick sailed over the cross bar (more like a rugby conversion attempt) and maybe this was for the best for everyone as it didn’t affect the final result.
