Bedworth United Jnr’s 4 Stratford Town 0 On this Sunday morning it saw us take on Stratford who we played a few weeks ago and won 3-2. In the warm up we lost our captain to a knee injury which will probably see him miss a couple off weeks. Stratford got the game underway and for the first 10 minutes it was pretty even with both teams playing some good football, but after that we started to turn up the pressure on them and on the 14th minute we got the breakthrough when Ethan and Maddox exchanges a few passes out on the right and when Ethan got some space he shaped up to cross and sent it into the top left corner of the goal 1-0 Bedworth. From then we took control and any attacks by them were cleared by Tom coming off his line, Phinley covering the back line and playing the ball out or the back 3 stopping them in there tracks. We made some changes and brought on Aiden for Lucas. On the 22nd minute Maddox put the ball into the back of the net from a corner which came to him in the middle of the box, he picked his spot and smashed it in 2-0 Bedworth. We continued to dominate the half and surely the 3rd goal would come. On 23rd minute Ben came on for Harry. We were playing the ball around nicely in midfield but Stratford cleared only to go to Tom in goal, Tom played a blinding kick over the back line which was higher than there coach would have liked and Kayne now up front raced through there defence and slotted the ball past there keeper from the edge of the box 3-0 Bedworth and that was just about half time. In the team talk the lads were told to just keep doing what they had been doing as the dominated the half. They also had to be aware they would come out fighting as they did in the last game. We got the 2nd half underway and started to push the the 4th goal but they had changed there formation it seemed and got everyone behind the ball to keep us out. The lads were trying everything they could but Stratford were playing a lot better this half but we did get the 4th on 37 minutes when Maddox took a shot from out on the left and the keeper fumbled the ball and Kayne followed the shot and slotted the ball into the back of the net 4-0 to Bedworth and Kaynes 2nd of the game. Even being 4-0 up the lads were still throwing everything at them to get another but Stratford we’re defending well now and clearing the ball well. It ended 4-0 to Bedworth with goals from Ethan, Maddox and Kayne 2. Today’s man of the match was Phinley who was covering the whole pitch helping in attack and helping the defence out. Well done lads, 3 games left and 9 points could be yours. Next week sees us take on Coventry Sphinx at home.
