The Falcons were forced to change the side after injuries to Dave Hughes and Giles Roper bringing in Chris Hutton, Rob Oldershaw and Andy Sumser to the line up for the visit of Woking PTE. The game was slightly delayed after one of the opposition had left his wallet in Barton Macdonalds and sure enough the chances of recovery were on a par with a Russell Warner return pass in the D!
The game was soon over with Rob Oldershaw dominating the midfield and Andy Sumser outpacing the Woking half back who was after all pulling a very heavy cart! Russ Warner, in a rich vein (vain!) of goal scoring form, scored the first goal after good work from Sumser. Sumser scored his first goal for the old boys after good work from Mark Crampton-Smith and good advantage from the umpire Geoff Paver. Mark showing there is more to just scoring goals when playing centre forward - missing maybe?
The Falcons wrapped the game as Phil Dunnill smashed the loose ball past the Woking keeper, Woking rarely threatened the home side's goal and any attacks were dealt with confidently by Ian Murphy guesting in goal as Richard Wilsdon was not available - washing dirty laundry we supposed!
The score was 3 nil at half time and Dave Hughes rang the changes with the bold move of moving Chris Hutton up front and his added pace soon resulted in a second Sumser goal from close range. Chris then scored the 5th and his first goal of the millenium before donning his comfort blanket and retreating to full back. John Kaluza scored the 6th lifting his shot high into the net. Rogan adding the 7th from a stroke and there was time for Russ Warner to gleefully get his hat trick with 2 well taken goals.
Andy Sumser deservedly got Man of the Match - eh Russ?
