FC Amble Juniors U15...10 North Shields U15...0
Pin Point Recruitment U15 League Two
AMBLE were up against a team who beat them 9-1 away from home at the start of the season.
However, this time the away side only had nine men, meaning Amble had a massive advantage.
The home side had a good start as Andy Flanighan’s goal-kick was flicked on by Jason Imeson where Jordan King had a chance to finish but his shot went wide.
King and Max Anderson then linked up well and it was the latter who eventually had a curling shot that went just wide.
Soon after Amble got their goal. Josh Briggs brilliantly went down the right wing before chipping the keeper well (1-0).
Fenwick, Batey, Straughan Briggs and Anderson all tried to up the home side’s lead with a series of shots on target but they failed to get them in the goal.
However soon after Amble got their second. Fenwick switched the ball to James Oliver who played in Batey who finished clinically into the top corner (2-0).
Just before the half-time whistle went, Amble added their third. Again it was Batey and again he finished in the top corner brilliantly (3-0).
With the second half over Amble knew they had the game won and the rest was like a training exercise for Amble.
Briggs went past the keeper and from a tight angle he played the ball back to Brad Little who played the ball to Max Anderson who shot just wide. Then in the next few minutes Amble added another three.
Briggs finished well after a Jason Imeson pass before Brad Little laced the ball into the back of the net after the ball fell to him nicely and Ali Batey finished well from 12 yards after Callum Fenwick was hacked down in the box (6-0).
Amble won a penalty after Anderson looked to have scored but a defender deliberately handled the ball on the line and then got sent off.
From the penalty, Josh Briggs came on to be the second hat-trick hero of the game after he finished the penalty perfectly (7-0).
Then Jordan King got his first of the game after finishing well (8-0).
After this Briggs got his fourth and Amble’s ninth when he lobbed the keeper brilliantly (9-0).
King copleted the scoring when he rounded the keeper and used his pace to get to the ball first and his job was simple from there (10-0).
In the end, a brilliant win for Amble where the opposition really had no chance.
