This spurred Newhall into action!  Newhall replied straight away, a corner kick found its way to Tom who converted his chance by firing hard and low into the bottom right of goal!! Well-done Tom for his first goal this season!!

Newhall were now hungry for more and it wasn’t long before Alex had a long range shot that buried itself in the bottom right hand corner!! 2-1. Thomas was linking up well with Alex upfront to produce some fine efforts on goal.

It was Winshill who levelled the match by catching the Newhall defence napping by scoring on a breakaway run. 2-2.  Newhall were keen to get back in front and Alex powered his way through the defence to score over the on rushing keeper 3-2!

Newhall replied with some excellent passing moves between Josh, Adam and Alex and we were rewarded with another goal. Alex who shot in the bottom right hand corner to make it Tigers 6 Winshill 3.

Harry then saw a shot whiz over the bar. Newhall had to be cautious in defence after some fast counter attacks by Winshill but were again expertly marshalled by the superb Player of the match Mia and some fine saves by Lewis.

Late in the second half Winshill scored to make the final score line 6-4.
