Winning Run Continues for the Under 16s
Blistering start sets up comfortable victory
Glebe Under 16's completed their 7th league win in a row with a 7-1 victory over Greenwich Borough. After a strong first half of the season, the Christmas training has paid off with victories in the first two January games to keep alive hopes of a run at the League title. And this win was set up with a blistering start that saw Glebe 2-0 up within 5 minutes. The first goal came just 2 minutes in to the game when Louis fittingly re-created Cyrille Regis' 1982 Goal of the Season with a stunning turn, run and strike from over 20 yards. This was followed by Kai scoring the first goal of his perfect birthday hat-trick (left foot, right foot and a header). Despite some excellent saves from the Greenwich goalkeeper throughout the game, Glebe fully deserved their 7-1 victory, with further goals from Toby (a "towering" header at athe far post from one of many fine crosses from Jacob); a superb solo run from Ope; and a textbook header from Max.
