Sirocco

The comber players made the short trip to billy neill for a home match against sirocco fc with an early morning kick off . Conditions for the match where very good considering the amount of rain fall over the previous few days .

The rec squad was down in numbers due to sickness and injures the most noticeable being no 1 goalkeeper Tom lappin out for approximately 3 weeks with a stomach muscle injury.

However we have the reliable hands off stand in goalkeeper farmer joe ,Owen John gill in between the posts . Also missing was big Marty drysdale , Robbo Rutherford ,Mathew burns and Luke Andrews .

The teams took to the pitch with the rec playing in a changed strip of red tops and black shorts against a sirocco team in there normal colours .

The referee got the game underway with the game flowing from end to end early exchanges seen both defences on top and surely it was only a matter of time before we have the opening goal .

15 minutes gone and itís the opening goal along with the run of play keeper Owen gill plays the ball up field ,speedy winger Adam Martin plays the ball through to forward Mathew Adair who bursts through the sirocco defence who shoots ,the ball hits the keeper and rebounds of forward Mathew and into the net 1-0 to the rec .

A much deserved goal for the rec and Mathews 2nd goal in 2 matches .

Play continues with the visitors pushing hard to try and get back into the match, 22mins gone and itís a disaster for the rec ,full back Benjamin Hamilton breaks up an attack on the far side of the pitch however the sirocco no 11 flys in recklessly and takes the fullback out with what looks like a serious ankle / leg injury a cert red card you would have thought ,not the case the referee doesnít even speak to the attacker .

Play continues with Shaun smyth Coming on to the pitch for his debut for the rec with a few positional adjustments the rec players continue to take the game to the visitors ,the ball is played into the penalty area and Shaun makes a lovely turn gets his shot away only to hit the post what a start that would have for the big attacker.

31 minutes and a mistake in midfield allows the visitors through and against the run of play the score is 1-1 . Time to regroup ,the referee brings the half to an end with a halftime score line of .

Comber rec 1. V sirocco f.c 1.

The ref gets the 2nd half underway and right from the start sirocco are on the attack and it isnít long before the visitors score there 2nd goal, 46 minutes gone and a defensive mistake from Brandon the dancer cromie allows the sirocco forward through who fires the ball in with stand in keeper Owen John gill rooted to the spot 2-1 to the visitors.

The rec restart and right away try and push hard for an equaliser Luke the quiet man Johnston trying his best to hold the ball up for the recs attacking midfielders to move onto .

Jonny the hitman Jackson running his socks of in midfield trying his best to support the attackers gets a shot away but goes wide ,meanwhile at the other end farmer joe,Owen John gill pulls off a great save at full stretch to deny the visitors a third goal ,looks like itís not going to be the recs day, the team switchís to a 3 man defence giving the midfield an opportunity to push further in attack .

Against the run of play and with 2 minutes to go the visitors score a 3rd goal to make it 3-1 to sirocco .

The ref blows up to bring the game to an end with a final score of .
Comber rec. 1. V. Sirocco f.c. 1

F.n . Following the injury to Benjamin Hamilton I spoke with referee at half time and asked the question why he hadnít taken any action against the sirocco player who caused the injury . The referee offered apologies and admitted that he had made a mistake as he was more concerned about the players injury and never thought about any action with the sirocco player .

Benjamin subsequently received the news when he went to hospital after the match that he had sustained a broken tibia .

We wish Benjamin a very speedy recovery .

MAN OF THE MATCH . JONNY JACKSON a powerful performance in midfield never stopped running or moaning all day
