Hollington claim derby spoils

(April 24, 2021)

Sidley United 0 - 1 Hollington United - MSFL Premier Division Mini League

It was a more spirited performance from Sidley United but the same result as Hollington United put themselves on the brink of the title with a narrow victory.

A physical encounter was always to be expected with a number of free kicks awarded in the early stages. From one aerial tussle Zac McEniry hit the floor and with no free kick awarded, frustration took over and he was sin binned for dissent towards the referee.

Sidley very nearly rode out the period with the man disadvantage but on 27 minutes a neat move from the visitors saw the ball paid through to Bailo Camara who finished low past Phil Hawkins to give them the lead.

Back to their full numbers, Sidley tried to push their opponents back but found chances hard to create. In the second period, Hawkins made a good save to stop Hollington extending their advantage.

The Blues did enjoy a better spell in the final third of the match, and forced a number of late corners. However the Hollington defence held firm to claim the points and put themselves on the cusp of the title.

Sidley Team: Hawkins, Foster, McEniry, Elliott-Noye, Elphick (Funnell), Bristow, Thompson, Ellis, Carey, Cornford, Baldwin (Wells).
