All the best to Mason at University. (y)
Newport Pagnell Town Reserves' departing Mason Coleman as he toddles off to Uni on their 4-1 win at Eynesbury Rovers Reserves:
"Newport travelled to Eynesbury yesterday with the prospect of achieving a fifth straight win on the bounce. Ashcroft's men knew their emphatic streak wasn't to be misunderstood, the Swans had to turn up if we wanted to properly assert ourselves in the early stages of the league. Both teams enjoyed spells of possession early on, the fantastic carpet-like pitch encouraged good passing football and this very much capitalised on by both teams. However, the early stalemate came to a close after the ball fell to me in the box and I was able to take and early touch and place the into the far corner (one of many goals I've scored). The swans had their tales up and structured more and more piercing attacks. After a fluid move from defence to attack, a teasing square ball from Smithy fell to Trey and despite not knowing much about it himself, he headed home for 2-0. Garry Brooke's added more salt to Eynesbury's wounds by finishing yet another brilliant Newport move with and emphatic finish into the far corner. The game did level off towards the end of the first half, yet this didn't stop Jamie added Newport fourth. His powerful run into the box after the ball fell to him allowed him to slot the ball under the keeper. Eynesbury enjoyed far more possession in the 2nd half and played good football despite the game becoming increasingly scrappy. This came with success, pulling back a goal on a well work attack, but this was really only a consolation. The game came to a close marking the continuation of a fantastic winning streak for the swans and what was my final game before I go to University."
