It's Six For The Gingerbreads
The Gingerbreads got back to winning ways in style at The Meres tonight.
Adam Stevens started with the same 11 that lost at Altrincham on Saturday.
Like Saturday The Gingerbreads had an early penalty shout. Lee Shaw turned in the box and appeared to brought down, however the referee waved the appeals away.
20 minutes in and The Gingerbreads were ahead. Luke Shaw slid a pass through to Lee Shaw who broke free and fired home.
Ten minutes later the lead was doubled. It was the two Shaw's that were at it again. This time Luke floated a cross over and Lee rose to head home.
The Gingerbreads made it 3 five minutes before the break. A great move involving Michael Hollingsworth and Jordan Hempenstall was finished at the back post by Luke Shaw.
Just before half time, Stefan Galinski was fouled and at half time was replaced by Rhys Lewis.
It seemed that Sutton Coldfield had received some strong words at halftime as they started on the foot and pushed players forward.
Andrew Wright though almost made it 4, but his deflected shot returned off the post.
2 minutes after Sutton Coldfield got their goal, a smart move down the right saw Gaz Singh get free and round Kieran Preston to slot home.
Things were slightly nervy for a while as The Gingerbreads struggled to keep up with pace and intensity shown in the first half.
The nerves were calmed though when Lee Shaw was able to break free down the right and fire home, to make it 4-1 and his first ever hat trick for The Gingerbreads.
The Gingerbreads were not done. After breaking down a Sutton Coldfield attack, The Gingerbreads broke free. Jordan Hempenstall powered a header forward for Lee Shaw and he once again was able to fire home.
With 2 minutes of added, Andrew Wright got into the scoring. His driving run from the left wing was finished off in style.
A 6-1 win on a Tuesday night, sent everyone home very happy.
