Burghfield Topple Local Rivals Mortimer!

By

Burghfield FC upset the odds to beat local rivals 1-4 on Saturday afternoon.

On a sunny day the Blue Army made the short trip to local neighbours Mortimer.

After a strong start from the away side, Mortimer took the lead against the run of play. A long ball downfield was latched onto by the Mortimer front man who smashed a shot against the bar and the resulting rebound was smashed home leaving Iain Mcculley with no chance in the Burghfield goal.

The Blues didn’t let their heads drop and continued to play their football and were finally rewarded on 39 minutes when a superb Leroy Clarke free kick was headed in at the back post by Jordan Jones to make it 1-1.

The game looked to be heading into half time level until Joe Roberts scored on the verge of half time. Roberts made a marauding run forward from the back, beating 3 Mortimer defenders, playing a one two with Dane Kirby and smashed the ball into the far corner.

Half Time: Mortimer 1-2 Burghfield FC

The Blues had to dig in for the first 20 minutes after the break with Chris Smalley-Ward making a great block on the line after a brilliant save from Iain Mcculley.

Burghfield looked in complete control of the game and increased their lead in the 73rd minute when former Mortimer man, Dean Clark, broke away from the Mortimer defence and slotted the ball past the onrushing keeper.

The Blues continued to play good football and nearly increased their lead again when Chris Smalley-Ward fired a left footed volley just over the bar from a corner.

With the clock running down, Burghfield capped an impressive victory when Tom Marrs smashed home a half volley from 25 yards to send the Burghfield following wild on the sidelines.

Full time: Mortimer 1-4 Burghfield FC

The result makes it 3 wins from the last 4 games for the Blue Army and today was a reward for all of the hard work that has been put in on and off the field over the last couple of years. Every single player put in a real shift today and not one person can be faulted for their performance.
