CREDITON UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB
SOUTH ZEAL 0 - CREDITON UNITED RESERVES 10
CREDITON Reserves travelled to South Zeal on Saturday, October 15, looking to make it six wins in a row in all competitions.
As the players emerged for kick off the heavens opened providing an extremely slick surface but on a very narrow pitch. As in a recent game Crediton raced out of the blocks with the prolific Adam Pidgeon completing his second 10 minute hat-trick of the season.
Crediton were 3-0 to the good after nine minutes with Pidgeon netting his hat-trick with finishes inside of the box, his third being a penalty.
The remainder of the half saw both sides create chances. Morish with his first twos start of the season looked dangerous down the flank, with Harvey and Thomas controlling the middle of the park.
South Zeal, to their credit, did create chances but this was either saved by Keast or dealt with by Broom or Gibbo.
After a long spell of even play, Pidgeon netted his fourth of the game right on the stroke of half-time.
With the game already wrapped up Creddy introduced Daryl Pidgeon and Tom Jordan from the bench at the interval.
Creddy continued to be in the ascendency. Further goals were added by “one trick pony” Steven Norish (2), Badham and Pidgeon to make the score 8-0 just after the hour mark.
The hosts had their best chance of the game when the ball fell nicely to their centre-forward on the edge of the box, but his powerful arrowed shot was well-tipped around the post by Keast.
Being 8-0 the gaffer thought the lead was large enough to bring on perennial substitute Ollie Collins, who to his credit, did a good job at right-back and even made the tackle of the match with a bruising collision.
There was still time for Tom Jordan to score, his fifth goal in five games and for Pidgeon to score his sixth goal of the game to take his personal tally to 26 goals already this season.
An all-round solid display for Creddy, scoring goals galore and more importantly keeping clean sheets at the back.
Joint man of the match went to Adam Pidgeon for his six goals and to Stevie Norish who decided to show his face after jetting off to Portugal for a lonesome holiday for one, scoring two goals and assisted three.
Next up for the Reserves is another local derby of sorts, away to North Tawton in two weeks time.
