Seasiders cut adrift at Hurst Cross

Report by David Robinson

A determined performance by the Robins saw them overcome the loss of their debutant goalkeeper in the first few minutes to score a deserved victory over their high-flying visitors. George Dorrington had to be carried off after suffering an ankle injury in the Seasiders’ first attack and was replaced between the sticks by midfielder Richard Smith who was rarely troubled through the rest of the game so well did Ashton’s back four play.

With Benito Lowe also making his debut from the bench in place of Dorrington, Ashton moved onto the attack and Ryan Crowther’s cut back saw John Roberts fire over the top before a Crowther back heel found Johnny Gorman’s left foot effort going wide. After David McTiernan had glanced Callum Martin’s cross just past the post for Town, Ashton moved ahead as a fine forward pass from Lowe put Johnny Gorman away and his cross was swept home at the far post by Matty Chadwick.

Dominic Smalley then made a fine run from fullback before over hitting his pass to Chadwick and at the other end Matthew Tymon picked up a forward pass and set up McTiernan with Smith needing to be out quickly to block before Chadwick saw a shout for a penalty go unanswered by Mr Baines.

Chadwick was again involved at the start of the second period as Dominico Maiese’s left wing cross was controlled by the centre forward who then set up Ryan Crowther to hammer home the second goal. Four minutes later the visitors were back in the game as a corner was returned into the area and a penalty awarded for handball against Daniel Shaw with Dale Hopson converting confidently from 12 yards.

With the game now wide open Chadwick wasted a couple of good chances as first he collected a long clearance and worked the ball on to his left foot before firing over and when his attempted cross to Crowther was cut out by Bland but he had the last word as a long clearance saw Crowther’s square pass allow him to chip home to secure the points.

Team: Dorrington (Lowe, Coo), Smalley, Maiese, Shaw, Connor, Lees, Roberts, Smith, Chadwick, Gorman (Knight), Crowther. SNU: Mason, Banim.
