Half Time 0-0
Saturday 23rd December 2017.
2pm kick off
Combined Counties League Division 1
BLACKMORE CRESCENT SHEERWATER WOKING SURREY GU21 5QJ
13 brave Vale men went away to 2nd in the league Sheerwater, battled, kept a clean sheet against a prolific free scoring team and came away with glory and victory. A fantastic team performance. Possibly our best of the season so far.
Our defence worked like Trojans to shut out the Sheerwater
forwards Chris Machay and Shane Rideout.
Goalkeeper Reece Turner and defenders Danny Alderton, James Curran, Marcus Dowdeswell, Nathan Lewis and Jerome Smart cleared loads
of quality crosses and free kicks as we managed to keep the Sheers out in the 1st period. Nil nil at half time.
Then in the 2nd half Vale dominated the first 25 minutes, had more of the ball and our pressure was rewarded in the 55th minute. Nathan Lewis won a Sheers throw and played in Danny Alderton behind their defence, Danny running down the left managed to back heel the ball back to Jack Williamson who powered in a shot from 20 yards into the bottom right hand of the Sheers net! Jack's 19th goal of the season.
On 68 minutes James Curran played the ball to Marcus Dowdeswell who gave it infield to Seanon McKillop who played the ball over the top to Conor Turner. Conor went around their 'keeper who bought him down. Jack Williamson lashed in the penalty bottom right, 2-0 and his 20th goal of the season!
Get in Jack. 20 goals before Christmas! Incredibly well done Sir.
Raynes Park Vale move up from 6th to 5th in the CCL Division 1 after this win.
Worcester Park are well clear in 1st. Sheerwater stay 2nd but Frimley Green in 9th are
on a big run beating 3rd placed Cobham. Staines Lammas are 4th.
