Match report by Ian Rodd
Billericay Town LFC Reserves welcomed Shrimperzone LFC to the New Lodge for our fourth league game of the season.
Within the first 5 minutes Joe Attridge broke down the left putting in a deep cross over the Shrimperzone keeper, with Vicky Martin out jumping the Shrimperzone defence to score, 1-0. 4 minutes later some great work down the right hand side from Elaine Sykes, Gemma Ozbek, and Tracy Rodd, saw Tracy put in a pin point low cross to Vicky Martin, who volleyed with some confidence low and hard past the Shrimperzone keeper, 2-0. After a frantic first 10 minutes the game settled down with neither team taking control. Then on 24 minutes a shot from Elaine Sykes on the edge of the area was blocked, with the ball falling to Joe Attridge, who struck the ball low and hard with a slight deflection taking the ball past the stranded Shrimperzone keeper, 3-0. 10 minutes from the break a great cross on the right by Vicky Martin found Joe Attridge at the far post who slotted the ball into the net, 4-0.
Half time 4-0
With Billericay gaining more confidence on the ball the second half was played pretty much the whole time in the Shrimperzone half, but Billericay were unable to create many clear goal scoring opportunities, resorting to long range efforts which were either close or well saved by the Shrimperzone keeper.
Full time 4-0
Nice for Billericay, to get another league win, but if we showed more confidence in the final third the score line would have been greater, something to improve on and i'm sure we will.
