Blues romp to comfortable win at Ore

(January 28, 2017)

Ore Athletic 0 - 5 Sidley United - ESFL Premier Division

Sidley United recorded their biggest win of the season with a comfortable win at Ore Athletic.

The home team began the stronger as Sidley initially found it hard to dominate the play. However after the opening 10 minutes Sidley began to get on top and had good chances through John Carey and James Bailey.

The Blues grabbed the opening goal on 31 minutes as a quick throw in was crossed to Arron Scrace who headed across goal for Bailey to tap in from close range.

Where the first half was perhaps shaded by the visitors, the second half they dominated. They got the second goal they had threatened through Sean Baldwin who finished smartly with a low strike into the far corner on 58 minutes.

Two quickfire goals then put the match firmly out of Ore's reach. Firstly on 64 minutes Baldwin rounded the Ore goalkeeper but saw his shot hit the post, although Scrace was on hand to tap home the rebound. 

And less than a minute later, substitute Jacob Shelton scored a spectacular goal on his Sidley debut with a thunderous strike from outside the area.

Ore struggled to create much as Sidley cut through them at will and it was no surprise when Baldwin got his second, showing good strength to hold off his defender and turn the ball home on 81 minutes to wrap up an excellent performance by Sidley.

Finally the big win Sidley have been promising for some time arrived and a solid defensive display marked by another clean sheet also bodes well for the remaining 5 league matches the Blues have left this season.

Sidley Team: Rogers, Elphick, Hempe (Brockhurst), Copley, Eldridge, Day, Carey (Funnell), Cole, Scrace, Bailey (Shelton), Baldwin.
