Stanley Park captain S.Toure was looking dangerous and it wasn’t long before he got his first goal, after some excellent work from H.Harding, S.Toure beat his man and then sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to give Stanley Park the early lead. The goal scoring continued and once again S.Toure was on the score sheet. Similar to his first he found some space in the attacking third allowed him to drive forward with the ball beating two players before slotting the ball past the keeper. Stanley Park were playing with great confidence across the park with Y.Kristainsen & P.Byrne commanding the back four showing great composure to play out from the back. E.Abdalla continued to terrorise the Glenthorne right back and was to turn provider for S.Toure Hat-Trick goal. Stanley Park were to score again with J.Spooner making it 4-0 before Glenthorne were given a goal to bring the score to 4-1 at half-time.

The second half started with Stanley Park keeping the ball well with L.Wright and T.O’Kill both putting in great performances, cementing their place in the team for Monday’s Surrey Cup fixture. The fifth goal was soon to come when A.Davenport picked up the ball in the Glenthorne penalty area after an excellent touch A.Davenport smashed the ball into bottom corner of the goal. The game finished 5-1 to Stanley a great victory in the league and excellent preparation for the Year 10’s last 16 Surrey Cup game on Monday.
