Bebington batter Oxton 5-0!
By Jon Griffiths
Bebington have a field day against Oxton with 5-0 win
A Comfortable display from Bebington second team saw them brush aside Oxton third team and claim a 5-0 victory on the opening day of the league. An early misplaced pass was seized upon by captain graham Millington to waltz into the “D” and “strike low and pro” through the goal keepers legs. With Oxton hanging in there Beb began to turn the screw and a quick fire double from last week’s newspaper sensation Jamie bates left the visitors stunned. Yet there was still time before the half was done for a lovely flowing team move to work its way to the right and on the end of the cannoned cross was the eternally youth full Glen Costain to deflect reverse stick past a helpless Oxton Keeper. In reply after the break Oxton came out and had the best of the opening salvo in the second half and only the cross bar preserved the Bebington clean sheet, But mid-way through the half more fine work from Bates unselfishly put in Captain Millington for his second goal (through the keepers legs) of the game.
A fine performance from all the team was heralded at the end as Beb 2’s show there is fire in the belly for the season to come! Honourable mentions go G. Marsden, B. Jones, R. Green, B. Parsons, N. Green, T Wakefield, S. Lamen, M. Connor, A. Helsby and I. Rand as all 13 of us where a cut above on Saturday!
