Six of the Best as Reserves beat Harworth

Hat tricks from 19 year old Kieran Orange and 16 year old Travis Shooter extend unbeaten run to 7 games.

Playing two days before Christmas is always going to be a challenge for any football club but Linby were looking to close out the year with a victory to make it 4 wins in a row. The two teams had met twice already with both claiming a win in what had been tight games.
Linby introduced new signings Joe Newton and Ryan Richards into squad and both started in a line up that included 7 players under the age of 19.
The home side were 'at it' from the very start and chances were aplenty. Ryan Butler was unlucky on a couple of occasions and Connor Richardson also went close with a rasping shot from just inside the box. The thought did occur that maybe we would be made to pay for the missed opportunities but then Butler set Travis Shooter free to score low to the bottom right corner. This settled the nerves and the chances continued to be created by Linby. Harworth got themselves level with their first effort on goal from a well delivered pass from distance. Having had all the play and so many chances you wondered how the young Linby side would react. Predictably, Harworth gained confidence and forced a number of corners that the Linby defense handle nicely with Kieran Davies marshaling the back-line really well. As half time approached a sublime pass from Jason Moon picked out Butler wide in the penalty area. He danced clear of his marker and pulled the ball back from the byline to pick out Kieran Orange to smash home from close range. There was barely time to restart when the referee blew for the break.

Half time: Linby Reserves CWFC 2-1 Harworth Reserves

Injury to Davies brought about an enforced change for the second half. Alex Paterson slotted into right mid and Richardson dropped into the central defensive position. The next goal was going to be really important and Linby went all out to ensure it was themselves who got it. Once again the combination of Butler and Shooter worked a treat and Shooter extended the lead to 3-1. Harworth were really under the cosh now and just couldn't cope with the speed of attack from Linby's front line. Paterson played a terrific ball to put Orange in for his second and moments later the same player completed his hat trick when Skipper Adam Jacques broke free from midfield to play a slide-rule pass that Orange dispatched coolly beyond the keeper. Linby management wanted more from their team and they duly obliged when the returning Charlie Miller provided an assist for Shooter to score from close range and claim his hat trick. All credit to Harworth who never gave up and they nearly got themselves a late consolation only for Newton to make a double-block to ensure that a second half clean sheet was preserved.

The result means that we finish the year unbeaten in December and with only one defeat in the last 8 games. However, the most pleasing aspect is the style of play from the lads over the last few months. They never know when they are beaten, are playing some super football, work really hard for each other and are getting their rewards.

Today's Man of the Match award went to Kieran Orange for a sumptuous performance. Yes, he grabbed hat trick but he also worked tirelessly and backed up his left-side defender Joe Booth excellently. Special mention to Travis Shooter on his hat trick (not bad for a 16 year old) and also U18's Sunday skipper Ryan Richards who made his debut in the heart of midfield and looked terrific alongside our Skipper Adam Jacques.
Ryan Butler had a frustrating day and will be scratching his head wondering how he didn't get on the score sheet. But as the report shows, his contribution was massive as he provided an assist for 3 of the 6 goals and his dance to the byline just before half-time to setup Orange will live long in the memory.

Merry Christmas everyone and what a great way to finish the year.
