Comber Rec

The REC players made the trip to the very windy ballysillan in north Belfast for an away match and an evening kick off against 22 nd old boys a team who the rec have had a previous win and a defeat against. Conditions for the match where going to be very difficult for both sets of players with very strong winds blowing all day with an amber weather warning in place .

Team news .

The management had concerns over players capt Matty Gibson .and defender Alex Hamilton with niggling hamstring injuryís and illness affecting midfielders Luke Johnston and Jonny Jackson ,but thankfully with a large squad available for manager Phil Johnston to choose from fielding a team wouldnt prove a problem.

Capt Matty Gibson passed a late fitness test to lead the team and the beast from the east Alex Hamilton declared fit to take his place at the heart of the defence along side debutant player Reuben Lennon making his 1st appearance in defence and rahoule gonhia making his 1st start in midfield along side Luke Johnston who declared himself fit to start however the enforcer that is Jonny Jackson was only fit enough to take his place on the bench through illness .

Following a good weeks training the management team where keen to see how the players would react after narrowly missing out on the league championship to saintfield with the less said about that the better .

Special thanks must go to all those who came along to support the team on the night the squad really appreciated it .

The match got under way with both sets of players having to adapt to the very windy conditions the rec trying to take advantage of the wind with keeper Tom lappin playing long balls in for Cameron the kebab king Haslam and the speedy doc Callum McKay running onto .

The rec players where coping well with the conditions and with 12 minutes gone the opening goal of the match ,Adam bestie Martin fires over a corner and the ball falls to rahoule who fires home from 10 yards to make it 1-0 to the rec .

Play continues with the rec pressing for a 2nd , sore toes Matty Gibson goes close with a shot surely it would only be a matter of time before a 2nd goal would arrive .

20 mins in and Adam bestie Martin plays the ball through to farmer brown ,Owen John McGill who steadies himself before firing a low shot which flyís pass the keeper to make it 2-0 to the rec .

The 22nd boys where trying there best to get back into the game but with keeper big Tom lappin in no mood to give anything away it was going to take something special to beat him .

The no 8 from the 22nd fires in a shot that big Tom lappin gets down low to his left to make a great save good hands from the big keeper. 33 minutes in throw in to the rec young benji Hamilton fires over a cross and thereís Adam bestie Martin who heads it into the net to make it 3-0 .

The rec players certainly have got there defeat by saintfield out of there heads and considering doubts remained over some of them through injuries and sickness this was just the kind of performance they needed. With Luke the quiet man Johnston ,and Matty sore toes Gibson controlling the midfield everything was going to plan the referee blows the whistle to bring the 1st half to an end .

Halftime change sees rahoule making way for sadayu jack , rahoule who had a steady game in the centre of midfield getting a deserved rest . Sadayu moves into the less familiar role in midfield but with his strength and pace it gives the recís midfield more of a bite to it .

The ref gets the game underway with the 22nd throwing everything at the rec to try and get back into the game but with keeper lappin in commanding form it was hard to see a goal coming .

Free kick to the rec 25 yards from goal up steps the quiet man Luke Johnston who fires one in which flys over the bar very unlucky but a quality strike all the same .

Time for another change leaving the field the kebab king Cameron Haslam who has had a steady game and very unlucky with a thunderous shot which whistles pass the post a good game by the speedy forward .

On comes pat Mack moving into midfield in place of sadayu who moves back up front and with his pace a chance to torture the 22ndís back four . Play continues and sadayu breaks through and is very unlucky with his his shot which goes narrowly wide , debut player Reuben Lennon singles to the bench that he needs to come off as he has picked up a knee injury ,the big centre half has had a steady game in the back four along side the beast from the east Alex Hamilton and impressed on his 1st appearance for the team .

Coming on in his place is Brandon the dancer cromie determined to recapture his place in the back four ,play continues with the doc Callum McKay causing all sorts of problems with his constant running up front and as usual having a good game .jonny the enforcer Jackson singles to the bench that he needs to come off after 10 mins play unfortunately due to illness which must have been bad as he had to make his way to the toilet at halftime .

As we moved towards the last 10 mins more activity on the recs bench with everyoneís favourite big Marty yehboha drysdale warming up and getting ready to join the play .

The 22nd continue to attack and a certain goal is prevented by the beast from the east Alex Hamilton sliding in to block a shot and what would have been a certain goal super stuff from the big centre half a determination by the rec to keep a clean sheet . Itís Marty time ,coming onto the pitch in place of the doc Callum McKay who has run his socks off itís big Marty yehboha drysdale .

The big man will certainly have an impact from his enthusiasm alone as he just loves to play his part and right on cue big Marty bulldozes the 22nd defender to the ground slides the ball through to tattooed jack sadayu who fires the ball past the keeper to make it 4-0 to the rec ,what an impact from the big substitute and my how he enjoyed that running to lead the celebrations with his team mates . The referee takes a look at his watch and brings the game to an end a great much deserved win and a super performance from the rec players what a squad .
