Over 60s Lincs Premier League Wednesday March 15 at Holbeach

Chris Keirl and Andy Vessey dropped out of the squad due to injury and unavailability respectively. Dave Guest and Tim Marsden came into the A team squad. The full squad for Matchday 3 was:

  • Bill Whittle

  • Paul Beard

  • Bill Heath

  • Lee Tillen

  • Dave Guest

  • Steve Adcock

  • Tim Marsden

First up for Strollers were Grimsby Corinthians Whites who were top of the league and unbeaten at kick off. Stamford started the game on the front foot and dominated the ball for much of the first half. Corinthians were without a number of regular starters and had to defend resolutely to reach half time 0 – 0. Second half Strollers were quickly into their stride again and it was no surprise when Bill Heath confidently found the back of the net following a mazy dribble from Steve Adcock. Stamford continued to pressure Grimsby and Adcock expertly finished off a flowing move to make it 2 – 0 to Strollers at full time.

Next up for Stamford were Boston Utd. A much tighter and tougher game ensued. With time and space at a premium it was perhaps no surprise the first half ended 0 – 0. Second half the game opened up a bit and Strollers were indebted to Bill Whittle in goal who pulled off a superb save to keep the scores level. Stamford were also creating chances and Heath popped up again to make the most of a half chance to give Strollers the lead. Unfortunately, within a minute of the restart Boston equalised to make the final score 1 – 1.

The last game of the day for Strollers was against Lincoln Invictus. Stamford again started on the front foot and again dominated possession. Following a period of pressure Adcock finished emphatically to make it 1 – 0 to Strollers at half time. The second half followed a similar pattern to the first with Stamford in full control of the game. Further goals from Adcock and Heath giving Strollers a 3 – 0 win.

Three good performances, two clean sheets, two wins and a draw see Strollers join Grimsby Corinthian Whites at the top of the league level on points.
