Comber Rec

The comber lads made the short trip to HOLYWOOD for an evening k/o under the lights at spafield ,the team where pleased to welcome back ,young farmer Owen John gill following his suspension ,with linford Ben chambers back from hols and Joel mcburney stepping up from the o3ís included in the squad there was a real Look of strength and dept about the comber team .

With blonde bomber benji Hamilton getting the nod at left back following last weeks performance the team set up in the usual 4-5-1 formation . Conditions for the game where ideal with the comber lads knowing that anything other than a win would do following last weeks disaster. The ref gets the game under way with HOLYWOOD getting the kick off the game takes off at a fast tempo and 7 minutes in and the comber lads get the break through they wanted a fast flowing attack seeís farmer joe Owen John gill play the ball through for the doc Callum McKay to finish in style 1-0 to the rec .

Play continues with HOLYWOOD pressing for the equaliser the rec boys seem to be taking the foot of the pedal and seem to be content to let the HOLYWOOD boys take control of the match .

25 minutes in and here we go again a complete mix up defending a corner sees the HOLYWOOD lads put the ball in the net to make it 1-1 ,defence coach Hugh Hamilton could be seen pulling his hair out ,manager Phil Johnston looked far from happy .

Time for a change manager Johnston takes Brandon the dancer cromie off and replaces him with debutant Joel mcburney ,moving Owen John gill to centre half along side the beast from the east Alex Hamilton .

Play continues with midfield power house Jonny (Paul scholes look a like )Jackson unlucky not to score with the keeper forced to stop him low down at his post .

As we move towards half time adam Ď bestie Ď Martin who is having a steady game on the wing is putting in several good crosses with the comber lads unfortunate not to convert them .

Owen John gill looked to be struggling with a recurrence of the ankle injury that has been giving him trouble over the past few weeks the recís management hoping that itís not that serious ,the referee blows up to bring to an end an entertaining 1st half .

Half time score Comber rec. 1. Holywood 1 .

The ref gets the 2nd half under way with the rec players now starting to string a few passes together and playing the football that we know they can ,capt Matty sore toes Gibson controlling things in midfield with the coolness of the quiet man Luke Johnston playing balls through to the tireless sadayu jack who is unlucky not to finish he really should be on the score sheet such are the quality of the balls from Luke Johnston .

46 minutes in and a pass from Joel mcburney finds captain Matty sore toes Gibson who blasts the ball past the keeper to make it 2-1 to the rec .

The score line reflecting some superb forward play by the rec players thoroughly deserved.

69 minutes on the clock and a tremendous ball from Adam Ďbestieí Martin finds the doc Callum McKay who finishes superbly 3-1 to the rec.

Play continues with the rec controlling the play Jonny the powerhouse Jackson was all over the pitch breaking up any sign of a downpatrick attack,Joel mcburney fires in a good effort just wide of goal showing plenty of promise upfront along side sadayu jack . Farmer joe Owen John gill goes down in a lot of pain clutching his bad ankle following a challenge by the downpatrick forward ,his game is over for today manager Johnston and coach Hamilton struggling to carry the young farmer from the pitch.

Young Patrick Mack enters the play and slots into the back 4 , play continues with the rec pressing for a 4th goal another injury this time sadayu jack goes down in a lot of pain after some treatment the talented forward has to be carrried from the pitch unable to continue ,again manager Johnston and coach Hamilton having to carry the player from the pitch donít know who was in the greater pain the coaches or the player .

Linford Ben chambers coming on for the injured sadayu slotting into midfield with the doc Callum McKay moving up front .

Downpatrick are throwing everything at the comber back four but with young benji Hamilton having another outstanding game and the beast from the east Alex Hamilton cutting out everything that downpatrick are throwing at them surely they canít throw this away .

8 minutes plus injury time to go Ben linford Christie chambers makes a surging run down the wing and passes to captain Matty sore toes Gibson who fires a thunderous shot in which flys past the keeper goalllll pick that one out .

The cheers on the line led by cheer leader Marty yehbohah drysdale showed how much that goal meant to the comber rec squad 4-1 to the rec . Time is up the ref brings to an end a pulsating game of football and a thoroughly enjoyed match not good for the heart at times manager Johnston and coach Hamilton will confirm that ,a great victory for the Rec and oh how there hard work in training has paid off.

Final score . Comber rec u17. 4 v. Holywood. 1
