Excellent team performance from the Brook saw them to a comfortable 4-1 victory over Guildford City.


Guildford City arrived at Farm Park 14 places above the Brook in 6th place but you would never have known it.

With 6 players under 20 the Brook put in probably their best all-round performance to date as they won 4-1 with goals from Dan McDonnell,Nat Mensah,Austin Schofield & Rhys Rabess.

The Brook started well with both wide players Rabess & Quadry immediately put the visitors defence under pressure & took the lead in the 25th minute when AUSTIN SCHOFIELD headed home a Dan McDonnell free kick.1-0

With the Brook continuing to press the Guildford defence it was strange that they couldn't extend their lead & half-time arrived with the Brook holding a slender 1 goal advantage.

The 2nd half started with the Brook still looking the more likely to score & when on 53 minutes Rabess was fouled in the penalty area DAN McDONNELL made no mistake from the penalty spot.2-0

The Brook increased their lead in the 56th minute when a fine run down the left by RHYS RABESS saw him score the home sides 3rd goal.3-0

Although being outplayed credit to Guildford who continued to look to attack the home defence but with both full backs Tesfu & Bishop working hard to restrict crosses Kenneddy in the home goal was having a comfortable afternoon.

On 70 minutes the Brook scored their 4th goal when NAT MENSAH cut inside from the right to fire home his 1st goal for the club.

In the 75th minute the Brook made 2 substitutions bringing on Reece Charles-Jones & Mohammed Ahmadi for Rabess & McCalmon respectively but the Brook continued to look dangerous every time they attacked.

With the game drawing to a close Guildford scored a consolation goal in the 91st minute as substitute Shawn Lyle found himself unmarked 10 yards out in the centre of the area & shot past Cameron Kennedy,so the game ended with the Brook worthy 4-1 winners.
