Six Of The Best From The Town



The Town headed to The Hollingsworth Group Stadium on Friday evening, to take on Airbus UK in front of the Sgorio cameras, with the aim of grabbing our third win on the bounce.


There was no mistake from the Lakesiders who cruised to a 6-0 victory over the Wingmakers in a flawless performance from every individual. George Newell collected the match ball after netting a hat-trick, along with goals from Luke Wall, Chris Venables and Adam Roscrow.


Early Onslaught By The Town

The Lakesiders were in no mood to mess around following the first whistle, as Chris Venables came close to taking the lead on two occasions inside the first 10 minutes, although it wasn't long until the lead was ours. Nathan Peate received the ball on the edge of the area and just lashed a strike towards goal where Luke Wall re-directed Peate's effort into the net to take the lead.


Only five minutes later and it was two to the good for the Town! George Newell was alert inside the box, to turn home a rebound from the Airbus keeper after Chris Venables sent a header towards goal and Newell was there to tap the ball past the keeper to double our lead.


Goals Come In Two's!

As the first half entered it's final five minutes, the Town further extended their lead! George Newell chested down a cross from the right hand side, and made space for himself to get a shot away and slotted home to grab his second of the night!


The Lakesiders weren't done just yet with the first half, as Chris Venables extended our lead even further, with Lassana Mendes being the provider once again with a cross into the box, and the Captain headed past the Airbus keeper to make it 4-0 before the break!


Hat-Trick Hero!

The Lakesiders' 4-0 lead lasted until the 87th minute, before substitute; Adam Roscrow bagged his first goal in a Bala shirt, as he capitalised on a mistake at the back from Airbus, and slotted the ball between the legs of the Airbus keeper to make it 5-0 late on.


The Town still had time to grab another goal, and that's exactly what we did, as George Newell completed his hat-trick with a simple tap-in from close range, as Adam Roscrow turned provider with a perfect ball across the box to Newell, who netted his hat-trick late on!
