Plenty of fireworks as Truswell sparks Under 9s into life.
By Darren Howlett
100% league record for the impressive Reds as the Bonfire weekend ignites Pogmoor.
In form striker Max Truswell scored a quick fire hat-trick leading the line brilliantly as the Super Reds fired up another scorching victory on Pogmoor Rec. Notching his tally to double figures in the league already Max sparked a sizzling Sunday show as the Under 9s entertained a bright Worksop Boys Club yesterday.
William Chapman set the performance simmering for the home team early on with his 1st goal of the season before Max powered home a second minutes later. Further goals from the front man either side of half time gave Pogmoor a Blazing lead and the sizzling display was rounded off by a brilliant team move involving 1 touch passing from 4 of the team allowing Jake Hepworth to net from 10 yards out. Worksop boys chances were not totally up in smoke as they grabbed a late consolation with a goal past the ever brilliant Jack Smith in goal.
Improved performances again by Louis Smith, Joel Couldwell and Promise Ozoude assisted by fire cracker shows from Jacob Peace and Jacob Render with Pogmoor proving to utilise all members of the squad in an effective way.
With confidence spreading like wildfire within the team the 2nd game kicked off in front of an expected crowd warming their hands on the quality of football the reds produced. Solid defensive displays from Messrs Pearce and Mckenning were so authoritative they were likened to a council workers pyrotechnic stewardship armed with Health and Safety journals and a high vis jacket. Assisting ably with a whish in midfield and a bang in the challenge were Lincoln and Harrison. Rueben Williams shining like a Roman candle worked tirelessly throughout.
The game exploded in to life when a free kick was awarded to Poggi and when Jack Eastwood stepped up, the Worksop team were advised to “stand well back” as he lit the blue touch paper with an unstoppable effort. Louis Britton completed the victory with a rocket of a shot late on.
Worksop got a late consolation which their effort and spirit deserved. The game proved to be anything but a dud and man of the match for the 2nd time in as many games was home keeper Noah Howlett who spun more times than a Catherine Wheel to repel the away sides efforts.
A special mention for both teams, officials and supporters exemplary tribute to the minutes silence as well as Referee Lucy who controlled the game throughout. Next up for the Reds is a trip to Ecclesfield Red Rose Tigers on Sunday 15th November.
