Penn look to record books as 11 goals put them clear

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

PENN & Tylers Green are dust­ing off the record books to see if Satur­day's 11-0 win at Read­ing Town is a club record,

Two goals apiece from Casey Bo­carro, An­ton Bradley, Adam Har­man, Lee Thomp­son and Nile O'Meally-Newell, and one from Danny Jor­dan, saw the Hel­lenic Di­vi­sion One East lead­ers run riot in Read­ing.

Man­ager Gio­vanni Se­pede has not known such a goal glut in his four years in charge, nor in ei­ther his pre­vi­ous spell as as­sis­tant at Flack­well Heath or his se­nior play­ing days.

He said: “I've asked my sec­re­tary to look into if it's a club record or not. I can re­mem­ber us beat­ing Sto­kenchurch 10-0 in a county cup game, but I've never come across a score like this in a league game be­fore, as a player or man­ager – only in Sun­day foot­ball really.

“The funny thing is, it took half an hour for us to break the dead­lock. We were 4-0 up at half time and never let up in the sec­ond half. I had made a few tweaks by play­ing more at­tack­ing full backs, and it really paid off.”

The win took Penn five points clear at the top of the ta­ble, with nine wins from 12 games and an as­ton­ish­ing goal dif­fer­ence of plus 40, ahead of Satur­day's game against an­other strug­gling side, Old Wood­sock Town, who only have Read­ing Town be­low them in the stand­ings.

Se­pede added: “Goals can make a big dif­fer­ence if it's tight at the end of the sea­son, so it was good to see. I will let other peo­ple worry about whether we're true ti­tle con­tenders or not, but we've got goals and con­fi­dence run­ning through the side and a healthy com­pe­ti­tion for places.”

In the same di­vi­sion, Chal­font Wasps had no game but re­turn to ac­tion at home to Head­ing­ton Am­a­teurs on Satur­day.

Up in the Premier, Danny Burnell's brace earned Flack­well Heath a 2-0 win over Ox­ford City No­mads, which was over­shad­owed by Dan Rap­ley's red card, be­fore win­ning 4-3 at Kidling­ton in the Flood­lit Cup on Tues­day night.

They now host High­moor Ibis twice in as many days, at home in the Chal­lenge Cup on Satur­day and away in the league on Mon­day night.
