Lees' late goal rounds off a rousing Rams performance.


With Rams up against bottom of the league Alrewas it was the perfect opportunity to mix things up a little in regards the starting formation. As much out of respect for the opposition as well as to give our own players the chance to play in different positions.


Rams started with Thomas in goal, David at right back, the centre defence made up of Ben and Lewis and Adam on the left. Callum and Reece occuppied the central midfield positions with Harry on the right and Mitchel on the left of the midfield. The front two were Mia and Tom. With Josh and Alex as sub.


It took Rams a little while to get going with some early scrappy exchanges and little in the way of clear cut chances. It wasn't until halfway through the first half that Rams opened the scoring. Tom wide on the right hit a cross come shot high to the right of the goal, the keeper did well to get to it but could only parry it into his net, with Mia there just in case.

Mia looked sharp up front and got her rewards with two well taken first half goals. One from a tight angle on the left. Harry had a cracking half on the right of midfield, taking on and beating his man on numerous occassions and his delivery in to the box was spot on. On the other Flank Mitchell was playing brilliantly, tackling well, working the one twos with Adam and also taking on his man and attcking well. Reece too in the centre was breaking things up and played some good football.

Any rare Alrewas attacks were snubbed out by Ben and Lewis who looked solid at the back, flanked well by David and Adam.

Half time: Rams 3 - 0 Alrewas.

Changes made at half time saw Callum replace Thomas in goal for a straight swop. Alex on for Reece and Josh on for Adam.

With barely a minute on the second half clock Rams extended their lead with Alex getting the first of a second half hat-trick. Various positional changes made through the half with the hope of chances for different goal scorers. This worked well with Josh getting on the scoresheet with a great run and lob of the keeper.The Alrewas keeper pulled off a couple of really good saves before Mia got her Hat-trick with a thumping drive. Alex added a further two to also get his hat-trick, Thomas added another with a low drive from a tight angle and Alex crossed well to set up Mitchell to see him get his first goal for the Rams and round off a great performance from him today.

Full time: Rams 10 - 0 Alrewas.

Player of the match: Went to Mitchell. A great first half performance rounded off with a goal.
