Match Report - 18 Nov 2012, Maclay Football Club Red beat Gerrards Cross & Fulmer Rangers


This was one of Maclay Red's best performances of the season. Gerrards Cross & Fulmer Rangers actually took the lead after 54 seconds but Maclay gradually worked their way into the game and were well rewarded with this convincing win.

Top scorer MATT ASHBY equalised after 8 minutes after a good through ball from Hurley enabled Niven to deliver a great cross from the right. 4 minutes later MATT ASHBY fired in a second goal from 30 yards to give Maclay the lead. JACK WIGGS came in at the back post and headed in a excellent goal after 18 minutes as Maclay really started to play well. MATT ASHBY scored a third a minute from the break as he neatly flicked Alexander's cross past the keeper to give Maclay a 4-1 lead at the break.

ROB HURLEY fired a great goal from 35 yards five minutes into the second half to seal the game for Maclay. This was Hurley's first goal for Maclay in a match when his all round workrate was impressive throughout. MATT ASHBY then converted Manners neat pass to make it 6-1 in the 54th minute.

JAMES MANNERS added two goals to end the scoring. The first in the 71st minute was a well placed shot into the far right hand corner from outside the box and then he finished the game off for Maclay a minute from the end as he skilfully beat the keeper after running onto a through ball.

MATT ASHBY won Man of the Match for his four goals and his overall top quality play throughout the match.
