Playford Reserves 7 Trinity 1 Playford Reserves 7 Trinity 1

First-half chances fell to Lee Andrews who fired just over, Ryan Broadhurst and Sean Hanley who had shots saved.

It took Playford a while to get on the scoresheet, almost forty minutes in fact. Broadhurst cut back for Stu Goldsmith to shoot and the goalbound effort was handled on the line by a Trinity defender leading to a penalty being given. Francis stepped up and finished bottom left, sending the 'keeper the wrong way.

A minute before half time Byron Stretton broke down the left, Goldsmith made a "lung busting" run into the box. Stretton unselfishly squared the ball and found Goldsmith sliding into beat the 'keeper to the cross and guide the ball inside the right hand post.

Seventeen minutes into the second half and Playford were 3-0 ahead. Broadhurst, making time and space for himself in the box, finished low past the 'keeper.

Four minutes later and Hanley scored his first of the morning. Scoring from close range after being supplied by Broadhurst. Hanley scored his second six minutes later, again supplied by Broadhurst, he beat two defenders before slotting coolly past the goalkeeper.

Goals where now becoming a habit and Francis found Andrews who added Playford's sixth.

Completing his hat trick in 23 minutes Hanley scored the goal of the match. Playford played flowing football into the Trinity half, a cross from the right by Broadhurst was collected at the back of the box by Godbold. He fed Hanley on the edge of the box who delightfully curled the ball into the top right corner of the net.

Sadly Playford couldn't secure a third clean sheet in a row when they let in Jordan Burridge to score from close range.

The impressive result saw Playford remain in second on goal difference. They are level on points with Chantry Phoenix who also won (2-1 against Rushmere and Diamonds) but they have a game in hand.
