Newport Pagnell Town manager Darren Lynch on their 6-3 win against Pinchbeck:
"Today we welcomed Pinchbeck to Willen Road for the first time and what a game it was. The day started in the worst possible way when I lost Mark Osborn our gk & captain plus Michael Lyon to a back injury, plus the loss of Jake sSronge to a suspected fractured ankle from Tuesdays loss to Daventry. So the odds were stacked against us vs a Pinchbeck side that had lost 1 league game in 18 months.
The game started in the best possible way when we took the lead through Tom Liversedge’s heading in from a Liam Smyth corner but then within a 20 min spell we found ourselves 3-1 down, but near enough straight from the restart Tom scored his 2nd and that really changed the game as we started to get confident on the ball and with Smyth & debutant Adam Moussi linking well we started to get more on the ball.
We equalised 5 mins before halftime when there was a mix up between their defender & gk which led to him handling outside the box and to mine and most in the ground amazement the ref only booked him.
Dom Lawless stepped up and fired the resulting free kick into the bottom corner! 3-3 at halftime.
We came out the second half with a spring in our step and within a couple of mins Josh Winters fired in our 4th from the edge of the box when they failed to clear a corner. We then scored our fifth when a Ben Snusher throw in was held up brilliantly by Liversedge and his lay off was smashed in by Dom Lawless for his second.
We then weathered a bit of a storm before Tom scored his hat trick on the break to give us a healthy lead.
There was still time for young Johnny Thick in our goal to save a penalty from what I thought was another suspicious decision.
We then done well to see out the remainder of the game and pick up 3 well deserved points.
I must admit this probably goes down as one of my best results as a manager with all the injuries & players missing and against a side with their record the lads could of felt sorry for themselves but they proved we can compete with the top teams.
A little mention to 39 year old Julian Olde who also made his debut today and was quality alongside skipper Olly Wilkinson."
