Hall Road 6-0 Clipstone

Hall Road Rangers punished Clipstone FC in a dominant display on Saturday as they won 6-0 at Haworth Park. Sam Robinson gave Hall Road the lead in the 5th minute when he headed home to bag his 10th league goal of the season after meeting Conner Harman’s cross into the Clipstone box. Harman doubled Hall Road’s lead three minutes later with his 4th league goal of the campaign as he placed a shot into the back of the net.

In the 34th minute, Rangers extended their lead thanks to a great James Piercy header as he got on the end of a Chris Spinks free kick. Spinks nearly got on the scoresheet himself just before the break when his effort was tipped over the bar by the Clipstone keeper.

Hall Road made it 4-0 in the 46th minute when Reece Moody slotted home to secure his 9th league goal for the club after reacting quickest to the rebound after Lewis Andrew’s effort was saved.

James Piercy got his 2nd goal of the game in the 56th minute with another header after meeting Chris Spinks’ set piece delivery. A triple substitution was made in the 59th minute which saw James Piercy, Conner Harman and Reece Moody be replaced by Alex Britton, Luke Bullement and Lewis Gibson. Gibson made his Rangers debut.

It became 6-0 in the 83rd minute as Sam Robinson secured his 2nd goal of the game and 11th league goal of the season.

Hall Road joint manager Leon Sewell was very pleased with how his side took control of the game.

“We were in control from start to finish. Everything was about the lads’ attitude and application and it can always be a tricky game given how Clipstone had a tough weekend last weekend.

Ultimately, we were on the front foot and played with a lot of purpose. Our ball rotation and player rotation were second to none.

I said to the boys at two o’clock if we do things right we’ll score goals, keep a clean sheet and have a good afternoon and a good evening. 

It was good to see Robbo get two and Reece on the scoresheet as was Conner as well so it’s all good.

Young Lewis Gibson came in and got a good half an hour off the bench. Joe McFadyen and Lewis Andrew both got through 90 minutes and Tom Macauley in our goal didn’t have a save to make. However, he was there organising and that’s what we asked of him.

From top to bottom and bottom to top, really, really happy with today” he said.
