Spalding Inter Services Trophy First Round

Old Doningtonians 0 Tydd St. Mary FC 6

Tydd St. Mary started their defence of the Spalding Inter Services trophy on Saturday with a resounding away win to put them into the Semi-Final.

In blustery conditions, both teams were struggling with the wind, but The Saints were getting the ball down and playing patient football on the deck. They were rewarded after 25 minutes when a loose ball in the box following a corner was pounced upon by Karl Smith to smash home for 1-0.

Just before half time Tydd made it 2-0 when Jake Clitheroe was brought down in the box and fired home the resulting penalty.

The Saints came out for the second half with the wind at their backs and it was not long before they made it 3-0. Dan Piccaver leapt the tallest from a corner to head home.

Clitheroe made it 4-0 with a great goal and then Eddy Pentney fired home a well-executed free kick into the bottom left hand corner. The final goal was just before the end when Stu Brown fired in his first goal for the first team from a corner.
