Milborne Port 0 Hamworthy Recreation 7

Although they were never at their best this was a comfortable win for Rec in their first ever visit to Milborne Port. Fresh from scoring four times the previous week, striker Chris Long repeated the feat in this match, meaning he has now scored 11 goals in the last three matches.

The league new boys looked lively in the opening exchanges and chances were at a premium, but on 21 minutes Rec were in front. A pin-point cross from Marc Fairbrother saw HARRY STOKES direct a neat header inside the post for 0-1. And just five minutes later it was two when good work by Stokes set up a chance for CALLUM CHARLTON to fire low into goal from the edge of the area.

Port looked to get themselves back in the game, but were dealt a blow on 38 minutes when a delightful through-ball from Ash Boyt allowed LONG to run on and drill in the third. HT 0-3.

The second half was only 11 minutes in when Boyt, again, sent LONG away to cooly fire in for 0-4 and just a minute later the Rec hot-shot claimed his hat-trick with a fine header from Lewis Tapley's cross.

To their credit Port still looked to attack when possible and had a shot fly just over the bar, following up with a dangerous free-kick into the box which keeper Sam Jones gratefully grabbed.

15 minutes from time LONG notched his fourth and the team's sixth with another header after Fairbrother's shot had been parried by the keeper and five minutes from time the scoring was completed when FAIRBROTHER slammed in after Long's shot was blocked. FT 0-7.
