Brilliant Brady blow Raiders away

By Danny Caro, April 15, 2013


Morrison finalists Brady ran out comfortable winners at Brunel, with goals from Josh Hershman, Alex Hershman and Jonny Ellis taking them on to 27 points following an impressive win and clean sheet over Raiders.

The unbeaten run continues and although the second half was scrappy, Brady did enough in the first 20 minutes to make sure the game was as good dead.

Ellis converted a twice-taken penalty before Alex Hershman smashed in a great half volley from the corner of the box.

Josh Hershman killed the game when he slotted home a delightful through ball from Ellis, while Alex Hershman also hit the bar from 30 yards.

Delighted Brady boss Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "This was our final game before the Peter Morrison final in a couple of weeks and the main thing was to win, keep a clean sheet and keep the pressure on for a top three finish.

"Yes we were missing a couple of players today, but the boys who came in did very well and now Josh and I have some tough decisions over our starting line up."

Raiders manager Rob Richman told JC Sport: "It was just a poor day from start to finish. We lost two players in the build-up to the game and then David Rhodes not even five minutes into the game.

"That being said, we still had enough quality on the field to give Brady a match, but in truth we were poor and Brady didn’t have to do too much to beat us.

"We will knuckle down and work hard as we need to scrap and battle for a few points which will make us safe."
