STROLLERS WIN 60+ ASHA HEALTHCARE LEAGUE with 2 games to spare!!!
Stamford Strollers v Matlock Arc
A bright start from Matlock & Stamford as both teams went looking for the early goal.
Stamford began to build and with some neat passing enabled Will Barrett to convert and put the Strollers ahead. This was quickly followed by a cracking shot in to the corner for Will to grab a second.
Chris Keirl ventured forward and placed a shot in to the corner making it 3-0 to Strollers.
Strollers were playing some of their best football & a pass from Steve Adcock enabled Paul Beard to find the corner to make it 4-0 at half time.
It was all about game management for the second half and taking the odd opportunity which Steve did - finding the net with a neat finish.
Strollers win 5-0 (Adcock, Barrett x2, Beard, Keirl)
Strollers v Boston United
Next we were up against our old friends from Boston. Both teams started well looking for opportunities to make a breakthrough. Boston Gk made a couple of excellent saves from Steve Adcock's shots.
A bit of a scramble around the Boston area, enabled Paul to pass to Steve to hit a shot that squirmed past the Gk and Strollers were 1-0 as we went in to half time.
As the second half opened up both teams went looking for the next goal. Bill Heath came on with a fresh pair of legs. Graham Curry, Chris Keirl & Bill Whittle (Gk) ensured that everything was kept tight at the back throughout the second half.
Strollers win 1-0 (Adcock)
A real team effort today with all Strollers players playing their part in securing 2 very important victories to make Stamford Strollers League Champions.
