Notts Senior League
ASHLAND ROVERS FC 8 BILBOROUGH UNITED FC 2
A rare Wednesday evening out for me and as always as Dean Seymour sees me, he seems to think Im a bad omen for his Bilborough United side, I think I was for this match!
Ashland were quick out the blocks as I stood with Referees dad Russ Booth and Ravenshead FC player Paul Smith as in the 4th minute, PAUL REVUELTA fired home from close range.
Bilborough fought their way back in to the match with a short corner and a superb cross by Tomlinson which was met by the head of GRAHAM STUART to level up the scores after 27 minutes.
Ashland pushed forward and their next attack on 30 minutes saw MARK SUMMERS scramble the ball home to put the Rovers ahead. On 34 minutes PAUL REVUELTA made it 3-1 when tucking home past the oncoming keeper.
The Second Half began with Bilborough pushing forward to try and reduce the arrears but on 55 minutes they were caught out at the back, when PAUL REVUELTA chipped home his hat trick after a poor mix up in the visitors defence to make it 4-1.
Bilborough carried on pushing forward and got their reward on 72 minutes when TOM O REGAN;s shot rebounded off the crossbar for him to nod home to make it 4-2.
On 76 minutes, the visitors heads seemed to go down a bit when mistakes were showing in their game and PAUL REVUELTA made it 5-2 when capitalising on a loose ball.
On 80 minutes, PAUL REVUELTA slotted away a penalty to which Nick Day in the United goal got a hand to, but the shot just beat him to make it 6-2 and give Paul his fifth goal of the evening.
On 85 minutes, KLARKE GREENHAM fired home after finding himself in front of goal to increase the lead to the homesters to 7-2 and in the final minute, ADAM MELLORS shot from 30 yards hit the back of the net to complete the goal scoring for the night.
Ashland played very well, possibly the best ive ever seen them play, whilst I felt sorry for Bilborough Unkited as Ive seen them play alot better in the past and if not for the defensive mistakes, the score would have been a lot closer.
With the 10 goals scored, it now takes the total for MAGGIES CANCER CENTRE to £467.15p
