Steve Benyon was delighted with his team and said, ‘It was a very good workout for the boys against a very physical team, with excellent performances all through the team. The boys played some fantastic high tempo football with great combination play and we just need to work on movement and interchanging between positions.’

On the bench were Antoni Sarnowski, George Minshall, Greg Evans, Lee Killen, Harrison Millington and Leighton Tierney.

However, The young Saints started to relax and within five minutes Hardy found himself through on goal and slotted the ball into the bottom corner.  The goal inspired his team and moments later he scored the equaliser.

Steve Monk’s side came out for the second half on fire and scored another four goals including a wonderful hat-trick from Williams.

Steve Monk and Craig Williams were very happy with the way the lads performed and said, ‘They have worked really hard in training and we are starting to play in the right way, with at least three of our goals starting with us being patient and building from the back.’
