Jewdinese come back in style
|4 - 2|
Barney Rhodes, James Ross, Zack Collins and Ben Berrick helped Jewdinese continue their imperious start although they were forced to come from behind against a plucky Loughton team.
A goal early on from Rhodes put Jewdinese ahead after a fumble by the keeper settled them into the game. Loughton fell behind early on, but the east Londoners turned the game on its head with strikes from Dan Shafron and Adam Conway taking them into the break 2-1 ahead.
If Jewdinese thought Darren Lawrence's teamtalks were inspirational previously, he gave the boys a grilling at half time which really sunk in. Jewdinese stepped up a gear in the second half, with three more goals seeing them home.
They dominated the second half and got an equaliser early on through a Ross header. Jewdinese know that when they have confidence they are hard to beat and two goals followed in quick succession to make it 4-2. But they finished the game with 10 men due to a knee injury to Harry Brian.
"We came away with a win after dominating the game so I can't complain too much," Jewdinese boss Darren Lawrence told JC Sport: "I know we can perform to a much higher standard though. We might have to think about hiding Zack Collins next week though as Oakwood might look to sign Jewdinese midfield superstar."
Co-chairman Zac Brin added: "After finally being allowed my say, I feel that we could not have wished for a better start to the season."
Loughton boss Dan Curtis told JC Sport: "We need to get over this quickly and move on to the game and get our season up and running. We battled well today and looked good in patches. We need to step it up if we want to get promotion."
