Peterborough League Division Three
Tydd St. Mary FC 7 Uppingham Town Reserves 1
Tydd went into this game after a four-week lay off over the Christmas break itching to get back to winning ways and they certainly delivered with a polished performance on the Thomas Clarkson 3G pitch at Wisbech against Uppingham.
Tim Lowe got the rout underway on 16 minutes when Dan Piccaver delivered a great ball down the right wing for him to run onto and slam home.
On 22 minutes Tydd doubled their lead when Stu Easey sent over a wicked whipped corner for Josh Slator to flick in at the near post for 2-0.
Three minutes later Ian Thrower clipped a great ball down the right for Piccaver to beat two players and slot home for 3-0.
On 35 minutes Easey found Lowe with a lovely lobbed pass for him to fire home Tydd’s fourth. It remained 4-0 to the break.
Tydd began to make changes during the second half with the luxury of five subs on the bench available and it was super sub Paul Clarke that made it 5-0 on 63 minutes when a Jason Powley pass found him on the edge of the box with still a lot of work to do. He looked up and fired a cracking shot into the top right hand corner to give the Uppingham ’keeper no chance.
Two minutes later it was 6-0 when Lowe was felled in the box and scored the subsequent penalty. The best goal of the game was saved until the 82nd minute when Clarke was brilliantly set up by Darren Rawthorn to score a ‘worldy’ from the edge of the 18-yard box to make it 7-0. Uppingham pulled a consolation back in time added on but The Saints ran out comfortable winners on the day.
