Brook break their duck with a well earned win at Spelthorne Sports.
A hard working Brook deservedly earned their 1st win of the new season beating Spelthorne Sports 2-0
The Brook started the game much the brighter side & deservedly went 1-0 up in the 10th minute through an OWN GOAL which owed much to the persistant work of Harry Bishop.Harry Bishop's run down the left saw him put a dangerous cross into the box but unfortunately for the home team one of their players diverted the ball past his own keeper.0-1
5 minutes later but for Spelthorne's keeper Jake Taylor the Brook could have increased their lead as Omar Hassan cut inside the full back & fired in a shot that Taylor pushed round the post for a corner which was cleared.
Spelthorne were finding it difficult to get any momentum going & once again the Brook spurned an opportunity to add to their goal as first Matt Kaczmarek then Sekani McCalmon shot over in the 31st & 32nd minutes.H-T 0-1
Clearly the Spelthorne half-time team talk had an effect as they were straight on the attack from the whistle & a shot in the 46th minute rattled the Brook crossbar with Bramwell beaten.5 minutes later another shot from the edge of the area was pushed over the bar by Bramwell but the resultant corner was comfortably cleared.
The Brook were gradually finding their way into the half & in the 56th minute Omar Hassan made a good run down the left ,found Nat Mensah buy his shot went past the post.
In the 60th minute another run by Hassan but his shot was blocked,a minute later it looked as if the Brook were certain to extend their lead as a cross from Harry Bishop on the left found Josh Quadry unmarked in the area but his header went past the post.
A minute later in the 63rd minute the Brook extended their lead when JACJ ROPER chased down a loose ball & scored past Taylor in the home goal.0-2
Spelthorne continued to push forward & it took good defensive work from the Brook back 4 to keep them at bay.but the Brook were still dangerous & in the 77th minute Omar Hassan had another opportunity to increase the visitors league but his shot was blocked for a corner which came to nothing.FT 0-2
