Sittingbourne's Under 23 Development Side overwhelmed Three Bridges last night beating them 6-0 at Woodstock Park. The victory made them clear leaders of South Division after 8 games maintaining their unbeaten run. They have only dropped four points so far this season as a result of away draws against Ramsgate and Greenwich Borough.
The game was effectively over by half time with the Brickies four-nil up at this point. Jake Embery opened the scoring after 12 minutes the ball being cut back to him in the box after a fine right wing run from Bradley Schafer. Schafer then scored himself from a superb volley after a deep cross from Raphe Brown. In fact wing-backs Schafer and Brown were rampant all night causing havoc from their aggressive running creating numerous chances for the forward players. Taylor Naessens scored number three, his initial shot being saved by the Bridges keeper but following up to slot the spilt rebound. The game was effectively put beyond doubt when pressure from Callum Naessens at a corner forced one of their defenders to head into his own net.
Perhaps not surprisingly the Brickies failed to maintain the intensity of the first half into the second period. However, defenders Ed Bensley, Callum Naessens and Josh Wisson were solid at the back and provided a creative launch pad for more chances. Embery scored his second of the night and substitute under 23 debutante Jarred Tresparderne combined well with Embery and Catmull to score the Brickies final goal with a well placed left footed shot.
The result left management team John Embery and Jermaine Darlington well satisfied with the night's performance and the quality of the Brickies play. They are home to Lewes next Wednesday and the week after sees a potential top of the table clash away at rivals Leatherhead who are currently in second place, three points behind.
