Sabden 14 – 3 Globe Bullough

Match Sponsor – Pendle Hill Properties

Fresh from banging in 22 goals without reply in the previous week, the Treacle Miners continued where they left off with an incredible 14 goal haul.

Paul Astin, who posted 4 goals to his tally last week, took just 11 minutes to register his first goal in what was to be another fine hat-trick.

James Duerden produced a display beyond his tender years in the middle of the park, and the first of his brace of goals was an early contender for goal of the season; struck with pace and poise from 25 yards, it arrowed into the top right corner.

Jason Bates returned to scoring ways, following a barren spell of over 12 months; smashing in his first on 26 mins and tapping in a second on 88.

Every successful team these days seems to have a Scouser, and Sabden are no exception. New signing Dean Foxall has now notched in both his competitive games.

David Fallon scored 8 goals in last week`s game. Whilst he added only one goal to that tally this week, he terrorised the Globe defence throughout in a fine display.

Right back Jonny Heap nodded in his second goal of the season. Initially awarded as an own goal after the Globe keeper flapped it into his own net, the Dubious Goals Panel, after copious amounts of Shiraz, have decided to award the goal to the Sabden player.

Masterful midfielder Adam Fuller swept home his second goal of the campaign, as Sabden put the game totally beyond the Globe.

With 20 minutes to play, and the game safe, pacy young right-winger Jacob Buggy was given a run out as a striker. He scored 3 in 4 minutes, and then still had time to create one for Jay Bates!!
We would be very interested to know if young master Buggy`s 4 minute hat-trick is the fastest one ever at Nutter Barn? Perhaps some of our older followers can advise?

Despite an amazing two weeks, where we have scored 36 goals in 2 matches, we anticipate our next two fixtures will be very tough. Please come down and support …
