Where has this performance been all season?

Anstey went into the game on a 5-match unbeaten run, however some recent focused training sessions clearly delivered an improvement on the pitch with the Kestrels storming to their best win and performance of the season - not an easy achievement on the back of 17 losses this season, so all credit to the boys for their patience and perseverance and continued endeavour in training.

The visitors started brightly with Robinson running onto a long clearance from Masters to open the scoring. With Stone and Cowan looking composed in possession, Willcocks then scored a goal of the season contender from outside the box. More was to follow when Bell making a rare start put Hirst through who calmly put the Kestrels 3-0 ahead at half-time.

With Bootheway now in goal keeping the hosts at bay, another early goal killed off the tie, however the Kestrels showing a ruthless streak continued to play nice short passing football and Plant soon scored a richly deserved goal despite later missing a penalty, however from the resultant corner Knight rose high at the near post to glance home from close range to seal a remarkable victory.
