Third win of the season for Daisy

Jamie Ramwell was the main man for Daisy Hill in the 3-0 win over Garstang with two goals and an assist earning him the man of the match award.

Daisy Hill recorded their third win in five games with a convincing display against Garstang.

After a disappointing result against Emley on Saturday, Daisy bounced back in fine style and could have won by a bigger margin had they converted more of the chances they created.

The night got off to a great start when Jamie Ramwell was unexpectedly presented with a simple opportunity to open the scoring in the 11th minute.

A clearance from Garstang goalkeeper William Kitchen landed straight at Ramwell's feet, giving the striker the chance to roll the ball in to the unguarded net to give Daisy the lead.

Garstang's first chance came on 24 minutes, when their big centre half Cameron Ross rose to power a header from a corner just wide, but that was as close as they came to scoring in a first half where the bulk of the goalmouth action was at the other end.

On 33 minutes Jordan Hussey was unlucky to see a header from a free kick cleared off the line, and four minutes later Danny Warburton almost scored direct from an inswinging corner kick, but Garstang keeper Kitchen punched the ball away from under the bar.

Long range volleys from Jamie Ramwell and Peter Lancaster both missed the target as Daisy finished the half on the front foot, and it was a similar story after the break as Daisy picked up from where they left off, with Ramwell's flick playing Lancaster in on goal, only for the ball to be nicked off his foot as he shaped to shoot.

Garstang's captain Ellis Hancox then became the first player ever to be sent to the sin bin at New Sirs in the 55th minute, when he was shown a yellow card and told to take a seat in the dug out for ten minutes after voicing his opinions too strongly to the referee.

With their opponents missing a key man in the centre of their defence, Daisy looked to take advantage, and after Danny Warburton set up Macauley Farrington for a shot, substitute David Devlin's through ball for Jamie Ramwell gave the striker the opportunity to test Kitchen in the Garstang goal with a well struck effort.

But Garstang's resistance was finally broken just after the hour, when Jamie Ramwell latched on to a ball down the right, cut inside, and rifled a low shot past Kitchen at his near post.

As the game entered the closing stages, Daisy continued to push forward and fine link up play between David Devlin and Josh Fairhurst down the left cut through the Garstang defence, with Fairhurst only just failing to get on the end of Devlin's cross driven low in to the box.

But a good night's work was wrapped up a minute from time, when a long ball forward was played by Jamie Ramwell into the path of supporting wing back Jacob Ridings, who finished off a fine move by burying a low shot under the keeper for Daisy's third goal.
