Mens 5th Team v Felixstowe 3 (Home (L) W 4-2)
Today was all about Ed Brice, how quickly would he score, who else would he set up, how many times would he get round his opposite number. The youngest player on the pitch showing all how the game can be played in the modern era with tricks and skills that the opposition had no answer too.
Ed put Magpies into a first half lead with a reverse stick shot from the top of the circle which evaded the on-coming Felixstowe keeper and then doubled his tally and extended Magpies lead with a similar style goal in the second half, a goal which was even more sweetly struck.
With Ben Emms, Tom Caston, Jake Caston and Jack Largent all combining well with Ed and Jack working tirelessly supporting from defence Ed and the young lads tormented the oppositions older and wiser defence, leaving gaps for Magpies senior players in the form of Andy Caston and Angus Wilkinson to add a goal each and ensure the win.
The only slight disappointment, Magpies defence giving Felixstowe a sniff of getting back into the game with a couple of goals.
Magpies Mens 5ths are now unbeaten in 4 matches and take their new found confidence and form to the UEA next weekend for what is bound to be a more challenging match against a team equally as fit and quick as Magpies.
