Match Report

1st Half

This was a rescheduled fixture, postponed from last weekend due to the snow but no such worries this week as the teams took to the pitch in positively balmy conditions at Swindon Academy for the Quarter Finals of the JPL Trophy. We know BC Saints are a good footballing team who look to use the ball well and so it proved in early exchanges as some slick passing and high tempo pressing set out a marker that here was a team who'd come to play football. Gradually the Reading lads settled to their task and a very even but hard fought contest unfolded, with chances at both ends. It was Reading who took the lead after a well worked corner routine found Euan in space at the edge of the box and he proved he'd been paying attention in the training session on volleys a couple of weeks ago as he unleashed a beautiful volley that dipped over the keeper, cracking goal. Despite several good chances in the rest of the half, neither team were able to score further but some great football played by both sides.

HT Reading 1-0 BC Saints

2nd Half

Reading started the second half very positively as Nick found Sam Hughes with a great ball in from the wing and Sam duly buried it to double the home side's lead. Sam then turned provider as his excellent corner found debutant Jacob in space and he got his Reading career off to a superb start with a bullet header to make it 3-0. Sam got his second after a brilliant cross-field ball from Nick found him in acres of space to run at the Saints goal and score calmly. And a few minutes later Nick played another virtually identical ball across to enable Sam to seal his hat-trick. Credit to BC Saints they kept their heads up and kept playing good football, forcing keeper Kai into a couple of good saves but today wasn't their day and the Reading defence and midfield were in no mood to concede. A good game to watch and thoroughly enjoyable to be involved with due to the great spirit shown by both teams.
