Lake Lothing 8, Red Herring 3

WITH the venue for this Shield match between Division two and three winners changed to BB High School, where Division Two winners Lake Lothing were unbeaten this season, it promised, and was, a very entertaining spectacle, both sides playing some stylish football.

The first goal arrived on 15 minutes, with a goal kick by K Riches who has been a superb addition to this young Lothing team reaching Hunter whose deft touch to T Grint split the Herring rear guard, the latter beating two more players to coolly slot home the first. This was followed on 22 minutes by D Newrick's first of a brace for the day. Herring to their credit continued to battle and scored from a headed corner and a penalty. The game still played at quite a pace Lothing won a free kick which T Grint converted to give Lothing a 3-2 half time lead.

Within three minutes of the restart Riches made it 4-2 from a corner, the game waited some 20 minutes, although still hard fought for Lothing's next goal on 65 minutes with young T Grint capping a very good performance with his hat-trick aided by Faulkner, Hunter and Newrick. On 68 minutes Newrick's second goal arrived which he richly deserved for his non stop work, L Faulkner scored with a low drive having previously been thwarted by Herring's stand in keeper. By then the visitors had scored their third with a rifled shot from close range.

With the score at 7-3 Hunter scored from a tight angle after another of his many runs, taking his tally to 20 for the season, a fantastic total for a player having started a lot of games on the bench.

Overall, on the day Lothing got what they deserved, a place in Sunday's final at the home of the FA Vase finalists, all welcome.

Finally a special mention to referee Ivan Powell, who marshalled the proceedings in an exemplary manner.

Once again well done to a young Lothing team in only its second year.
