Maclay built on last week’s win over Wycombe Town to deliver another convincing cup victory. Stone were missing a number of key players on the day and should be congratulated for their hard working performance.

The benefits of playing at home were again evident as Maclay were able to play constructive football rather than worry about how to weigh their passes on a sloping pitch.

Maclay took the game to Stone from kick off and opened the scoring in the 11th minute when the impressive Yusef Seodi passed wide to Ian Ranger and he delivered a perfect cross for PETER HAY to open the scoring at the back post.

Stone responded well and equalised neatly in the 17th minute. Play moved from end to end for the next twenty minutes until Mulchrone set up Seodi and he provided a pin point cross for PETER HAY to head home. This was followed by a goal two minutes later in the 39th minute when IAN RANGER superbly curled the ball pass the keeper after Brendan Mulchrone’s great run and pass.

Maclay made an impressive start to the second half and went further ahead in the 54th minute when ADAM COWLAND ran through on goal and neatly slid the ball past the keeper.

Brendan Mulchrone continued to create chances for his team mates and SIMON DAVIS pounced on his pass to put Maclay four goals ahead in the 62nd minute. Top scorer PETER HAY added another goal in the 70th minute as he headed home Ranger’s flick from Seodi’s corner.

ADAM COWLAND continued to combine well with Ian Ranger and scored another trademark goal in the 78th minute as he ran through on goal to beat the keeper.

IAN RANGER completed the scoring in the 81st minute. Brendan Mulchrone crossed from the right, Martyn Clark forced a good save from the Stone keeper and Ranger despatched the rebound with aplomb.

Another good save from the Stone keeper prevented Adam Cowland from getting his hat trick five minutes from the end but all in all this was a very good day for Maclay against a brave Stone team.


Squad: P Hanlon, J O’Connor, P Hay (capt), C O’Connor, B O’Connor, S Hodja, S Davis, I Ranger, A Cowland, B Mulchrone, M Clark, Y Seodi, D Rennison & D Gavin
