Fielding a team with 8 players who had represented the first team in last season promotion winning year Marton where always
likely to be too strong for a Billingham team from 3 division lower.
Trying out a new formation Marton where quickly into their stride and after 15 minuntes found themselves 4-0 up without really
breaking into a sweat.
Subsitutions disrupted the early flow and Marton never really performed to the same level as in the early stages, some players
quilty of over playing where simple passes would have opened up the opposition.
Hat Tricks for Kevin Jones
and an impressive Matty Breeze
where complimented by a goal each from Mark Whitworth
and Alex Forster
Next weeks fixure against Sunderland may well prove to be a harder test.
