Depleted Park see off Synners

Fishburn Park under 12s put in an excellent performance in trying circumstances to record an emphatic 5-1 win at home.

With regular keeper Dylan Humble sidelined with a knee injury and players missing, 10-man Park had to call on winger Ryan Hambley for goalkeeping duties.

Hambley was brilliant all game and the whole team worked their socks off.

Park opened the scoring 10 minutes in, when Didelot raced clear and when the keeper saved his shot Ward-Hepburn pounced to score.

Hansell doubled the lead shortly after with a fine strike from the edge of the box, before Ward-Hepburn grabbed his second of the match with another strike from the edge of the box.

Billingham got back into the game when Park fluffed a couple of chances to clear and the striker lobbed the loose ball into the net.

The visitors had a couple of decent efforts, one which Hambley tipped onto the post and a couple of shots from the edge of the box which flashed wide.

Park were having the bulk of the chances and with a succession of quality corners by Bannister, they converted one with a thumping header by Swales. Urban came close to a stunner as he crashed his 30-yard shot against a post.

Bannister was then sent clear to lob an excellent effort right into the corner to cap a great win for Park.

Man of the match: Luke Ward-Hepburn.
