The Ricky 1's turned up to Southgate knowing anything but a win would confirm relegation today. The game started well for Ricky almost instantly forcing errors out of the home sides defence. The excellent pressure continued with a great solo goal from Guy and a number of questionable umpiring decisions leding to a short corner goal from Tim. 2-0 Ricky at half time.
The half time team talk was more positive than usual as Ricky went into the break ahead, but still knowing that the game should’ve been put to bed already. The strong team performance all round continued into the second half with Ricky again having the majority of the possession. A couple of great interceptions by Ali paved the way for Ricky to create multiple chances, and goals from Tim (4), Guy (2) and George (1) followed with Ricky eventually running out as 7-0 winners.
This win has set the team up nicely for a massive opportunity next week where we look for a win against Vauxhall to secure our place in the division next season and avoid relegation.
Well played all and MOTM went to Guy for an excellent shift in attack in both creating and scoring goals.
