With many regulars out this week F&O welcomes back Beebee snr from injury and Southwell after a 5 month hiatus also from the PLD conveyer belt Chris and Bryan come back to work on their combined 3 caps.
From the off Skins looked comfortable in possession and were knocking the ball around well, Southwell was enjoying himself and nutmegging people for fun it only looked a matter of time till skins would score. Shortly after Brench said to Mitchell we gift you a goal in a minute Southwell got on the end of a Greenwood pass and rounded the keeper it looked like it would be an early goal but he hit the side netting from a tight angle. Would this give a spark for the skins and prove Brench wrong? In short no.
Skins quickly went 3-0 up after Nic unfortunately put the ball into his own net twice sandwiched between a calm Greenwood finish.
Brench replied for bibs from close range after skins got caught trying to overplay from the back and then bibs looked to build on the momentum but were unable to capitalise and it was skins that scored next when Green slotted last Brench and just before half time Skins scored again to take a 5-1 lead.
The second half had a relaxed Sunday afternoon kick about to it with Bibs rarely getting out of their half. Southwell was continuing to nutmeg everyone in sight and he scored to extend the skins lead.
Virgo was having a great game and when he picked up a loose ball inside his own half and his teammates shouting shoot he was happy to oblige and when Curry jumped out the way the ball crept past Beebee in goal to make it 7-1.
Wilson rarely on a beatdown like this started to throw in some slide tackles to keep the score down, Brench out jumped Kev (insert gag) to make it 7-2.
You know things are not you day when Mitchell starts skipping past players and shooting and when skins scored with the last kick of the game an 8-2 score line didn’t flatter them.
Great team performance from the skins with Kev, Mann and Curry all playing great games but Southwell takes the MOTM he was pure class tonight.
