Birstall United v Ellistown And Ibstock Utd

Will Someone Please Shooootttttt!!!!!!!!!!!

With a Birstall side expecting to match the 11-0 victory earlier in the season, it's a credit to the lads that we limited the home side to 3 goals in a 3-0 home win.

In a game of attack v defence, our defence were brilliant in keeping out a well drilled Birstall side for 17 mins.

Ethan Bibby finally unlocked our defence when he headed home from from close range.

BU 1-0 EIBS 17 mins

Thomas Marriott doubled the lead on 29 minutes through another well placed header.

BU 2-0 EIBS 29 mins

We were unable to get our attacking game working and should be pleased we got to half-time with the score.

BU 2-0 EIBS HT

The 2nd half was like watching Tin Can Alley as Birstall peppered our goal and only superb goalkeeping from Jimmy Knowles kept the game at 2-0 until the 82nd minute when Dan Jelley slotted home into an empty net.

BU 3-0 EIBS 82nd minute

Birstall then run out of ammunition and the game finished.

BU 3-0 EIBS

Summary

Yet again credit to the lads for never giving up and pushing Birstall all the way. We now move onto next Saturday when we play Belpar at home ko 3pm
