Peter Withe Match Review

4 years ago By The Saxons Webmaster

Stockport Sports boss Peter Withe was satisfied following The Saxons 4-0 victory over Squires Gate at weekend.

Having seen his side struggle to turn their territorial supremacy into goals in the first half, once John Marsden broke the deadlock on the hour mark Withe's men cruised to victory;


"We were poor in the first half, we didn't pass the ball as well as we usually do and the tempo was not what we are used to. In the second half we passed the ball better, created more and took our chances"

"Unfortunately for them with the sending off Marso had gone past the keeper in the area and was taken down, so the referee had to make a decision and she sent the player off"

"It can get more difficult when you play against ten men as players find an extra gear and work harder, but we remained patient and got our rewards. In the end I was pleased with the result"

On debutant goalkeeper Callum Tongue;


"I was pleased with his display, although he didn't have a great deal to do. His clearance led to a goal and he did what he needed to"

Withe's side face Runcorn Linnets in the league cup next Saturday (27/10) at Stockport Sports Village, before taking on Glossop North End (30/10), again at home, in what is sure to be a fiercely contested local derby. The Saxons are playing some great football at present, are unbeaten at home and boast an impressive goals per game ratio. For the best value in football entertainment be sure to join The Saxon Army at both games at Stockport Sports Village and cheer Peter Withe's side on as they chase success on two fronts.
