PETER MORRISON TROPHY ROUND ONE
OAKWOOD B 0 BLIZZARD STORM 4
There was no shock at Parmiters as Simon Linden's Blizzard Storm made easy work of lower league opposition to finish handsome 4-0 winners in Garston, with OLI SIMONS blasting home a four fabulous goals.
Simons cleaned up - taking home the matchball, the matchday programme, signed loads of autographs on his way out the ground. The big striker was the difference between the two sides.
Delighted Blizzard boss Simon Linden told JC Sport: "Back-to-back wins, 10 goals, two clean sheets - looks like our season may have just started.
"We were very good in the opening 30 minutes playing some great football. Oli took his goals like a Brett Angel or better still, Alan Shearer, some great headers included from great crosses. 4-0 could have been 7 or 8. Blizzard fantastic today!
"For me, the whole squad deserve praise, however if I take Oli out and our centre midfielders Andrey Greyson, everything went through him and alonside Zack Presky they were brilliant."
Oaks boss Ian Tussie told JC Sport: "The game was over as a contest after 30 minutes as they went 3-0 up following a hat-trick from their Oli Simons - some lovely headed finishes but our marking was poor to say the least.
"However, we improved in the second half and got a foothold in the game and but for some better finishing might have grabbed ourselves a goal or two.
"All in all I'm disappointed that we've not gone through, but was pleased with the way they've came out and battled in the second half.
"I knew it would be tough for us, we had 15 players unavailable and, in the words of Harry Redknapp, were 'daaaarn to the baaaare bones Geoff,' but I'm proud of my players and back them to bounce back in the CA cup next Sunday against Chigwell."
