Second game of the season 🌪️
Shirley had a full team today spoilt for choice with players and options!
The game got off to a tight start today with both teams locked horns for the first 15 mins with either side having the chances to go ahead in the match!
Shirley made a few changes just after the 15 minute mark to change things about and it WORKED!
Tommy willett coming on to make an impact straight away with a through ball from Noah for Tommy to smash it into the back of the net and getting his first tornado goal 👌🏻
The first goal settled some tornados nervous and gave us confidence to play football the tornados way!
Hedge End we’re definitely not out of the match at this point with some great through balls and shots only for our goalkeeper Ryan Parker to be there and pull off some cracking diving saves🧤
The tornados grabbed themselves another great goal with Tommy in the mix again but this time assisting John Saunders for his first goal of the season with another cracking finish hitting the underside 💥 of the crossbar and bouncing in 2-0.
Shirley hit quick on the attack again with some great football coming down the right wing with a shot only for hedge end goalkeeper to parry it away into to path of Thomas Wilson for a nice easy finish!3-0
HEDGE END came out on the attack only for our defence and goalkeeper to clear everything up and do a great job 👏🏻 and make Shirley look unstoppable!
Shirley really turned up the heat 🔥 in the second half with some great passing and overlaps and our football was sublime with Tommy assisting again for John to get his second goal of the game 4-0 and Johns work wasn’t finished there with him picking up a stray ball to slot it home for his hatrick 5-0!
With already so many great goals today this next goal was a great team effort goal with the ball being played out from the back with Mason batting down the left side to slot in rayan to burst down the wing taking on two player and take it all the way to the byline and cut it back to Dylan Langford for a tap in but this goal was created by great movement from all players around the pitch to create great space to run into 6-0
With hedge end still not giving up and still trying to get back into the game ryan continue to stop the ball going into the back of his net with some great saves 🧤
Next came noah goal with and assist from the right from leon Allen to slot noah in for a great bullet of a goal to the side of the goalkeeper 7-0
Our last goal came from Tommy after just hitting the crossbar with a brilliant shot on goal 💥
Tommy picked up the ball from just outside of the area to absolutely crack the ball perfectly from a screamer of a goal into the back of the net 8-0
30 seconds left and hedge end picked up a free kick just outside of the area I believe there captain took the free kick for hit free kick to dip down to the bottom corner with ryan getting two hands on the ball and hitting the inside of the post but just couldn’t keep it out very unlucky 8-1
With that goal came the final whistle
Shirley run out 8-1 winners but most importantly played some quality football today and looked very strong 💪🏻
