ĎItís those magic boots!í

Mike Oatridge, as Rupert scores with a fantastic lob wearing the managerís boots, after his had visibly fallen apart on the pitch.

Although only 1-1 at half-time, the boys always looked in control of this match, and eventually overwhelmed Fetcham with a glut of goals in the second half.

The opening period of the game was end-to-end, with goalkeeper Mike yet again showing his bravery and ability, especially in one-on-ones, and Will showing his honesty when he kept going even though he had been fouled, and could have won a penalty by going down in the Fetcham area Ė WELL DONE WILL.

Ironically the boys went a goal down after five minutes, against the run of play, but they soon equalised after a super passing move between Will, Kirk and Eddie, left Eddie in enough space for a long range thunderbolt into the net, 1-1.

Fetcham did look dangerous when they counter-attacked, but Man of the Match Josh stood firm and the pressure was all ours, with Rupert bringing some fine saves out of the Fetcham keeper before half-time.

In the second half we finally went ahead with a brilliant Scott effort but it was Fetchamís turn to equalise with a pinpoint lob, 2-2. Just as the supporters were starting to feel nervous, Rupert broke through again for Scott to put us ahead once more, and that was it for Fetcham.

Rupert made it 4-2 with a superb lob from at least 20 yards; then Scott lobbed the keeper after it was Rupertís turn to put him through again; he also got our sixth and Will our final goal with another exquisite lob to make the final score 7-2.
