The Brook well beaten at Hanworth Villa
By Barry Stone
In a match that was effectively over before half-time a poor performance saw the Brook lose 5-0 at Hanworth Villa
This was always going to be a difficult game for the Brook as Hanworth Villa have been playing well recently & our cause wasn't helped by us playing our 9th game in 17 days, so much for Klopp & Mourinho continually whining when they have to play 2 games in a week & of course their obscenely paid "stars" don't have to go to work the next day.
Unfortunately for the Brook the game was over by half-time as Hanworth Villa went into the break leading by 4-0.Goals by Alfie White 1st minute,Cyril Ocansey 16th minute,Levi King 20th minute & Jack Buckle 40th minute completely deflated the visiting Brook.
Although there was an improvement in the 2nd half the Brook never looked like troubling home keeper Terry Buss & a 5th goal in 52 minute scored by Ocansey,his 2nd of the game ended any resistance by the Brook.
Cameron Kennedy in the Brook goal once again showed why he is up there with the best keepers in the league making 3 outstanding saves in the 2nd half keeping the score at 5.Also 16 years old Shane Nugent making his full debut worked tirelessly & with a little bit more fortune could have scored when in the 1st half a fine cross from Dean McDonnell saw him head just over the bar.
Hanworth fully deserved their win,playing some excellent football & their link up play between the midfield & forwards caused the Brook defence problems all through the game.
