Stamford 0-3 Marske United


A scintillating first half performance was enough to earn Marske a deserved 3 points, meaning The Seasiders ended the month unbeaten. With Jamie Owens unavailable, Marske manager Carl Jarrett opted for a front three of James Fairley, Jack Blackford and


Haystead, Armstrong, Egginton, Burgess, Cooke, Smith (Brown-Hill), Morgan,
Duffy (Bloor), Seal (Adams), Challinor, Boachie
Subs (not used): Eneremadu, Tarris

Marske: Dean, Martin, O’Sullivan, Butterworth, May, Wheatley, Blackford, Gott, Liddle,
Fairley (Carling), Round
Subs (not used): Clark, Ward

Marske got off to the best possible start, opening the scoring on four minutes. A trademark
long throw from Liam O’Sullivan caused chaos in the Stamford box, with Adam Wheatley
winning a header and when the ball dropped to the feet of the skipper, he made no
mistake from 12 yards out. Marske had another chance just a minute later when a Round
corner was missed by Wheatley, and Andrew May prodded just wide. On 11 minutes
there was a stoppage in play when Blackford went for the ball and collided with Daniels
keeper Danny Haystead, who was injured in the process, though it was only after
intervention from the assistant referee that referee Ruebyn Ricardo awarded the home
side a free kick. Three minutes later, neat interplay on the left involving Chay Liddle and
Round ended with Liddle crossing from the left, but the cross was just too high and Glen
Butterworth headed over. Stamford found a way into the game and had a spell of good
pressure. First, Joe Boachie shot wide after the referee played a good advantage
following a foul by Fairley on Jon Challinor. Shortly after, Rob Morgan beat Craig Gott in
midfield and saw his shot saved by Robert Dean at the second attempt. Marske doubled
their lead at the midway point in the first half and it came from a tremendous finish
from Round. A pass from Callum Martin was missed by two Stamford defenders which
allowed Round to latch on to the loose ball and fire a superb shot across Haystead and
into the top corner. On 35 minutes, it was so nearly 3-0 to Marske; Butterworth tried his
luck from fully 30 yards and with Haystead stranded, the midfielder saw his shot hit the
crossbar and bounce down just the wrong side of the goal-line from a Marske point of
view. However, a great Marske half ended with a third goal just a minute before half
time. Gott and Round combined on the left, with Round racing into the box and prodding
the ball through the legs of Haystead to give Marske a commanding advantage at the
half time break.

Half time: Stamford 0-3 Marske

The first action of the second half saw Dean claim the ball well after good play on the
left from Boachie created an opening. On 50 minutes, a foul on Blackford allowed Gott a
chance from a free kick, 25 yards out, but his effort took a slight deflection and went
out for a corner. In an attempt to find a way back in to the game, Stamford made a
double change on 54 minutes with Teddy Bloor and Liam Adams replacing Jake Duffy and
Ryan Seal. This was followed shortly after by their third and final change with striker
Greg Smith, who played for Tamworth in their FA Trophy defeat at Marske earlier in the
season, replaced by Ollie Brown-Hill. With 17 minutes left, May became the first player
booked for a foul on Boachie on the edge of the area, though there was some doubt as
to whether there was any contact. The resulting free kick was taken by Morgan but hit
the Marske wall and went out for a corner. Two minutes later, there was a clear winner
of worst shot of the game with the effort from Joe Burgess being high and wide and
ending closer to the corner flag. On 78 minutes, Blackford showed neat skill to beat
Jordon Cooke but his cross was too close to Haystead who saved comfortably. At the
other end, lively substitute Brown-Hill showed great close control to beat 3 Marske
players and shoot towards goal with Dean only managing to push the ball behind for a
corner. Marske’s second yellow card arrived on 83 minutes when Round was booked for
pulling back Challinor in midfield. Seconds later, Marske made a change with Leon
Carling replacing Fairley and going up front. Round was looking for his hat-trick and,
with five minutes left, cut inside left back Josh Egginton but his shot was high and wide.
Referee Ricardo awarded Marske their third caution with a minute left when Wheatley
was very unlucky to be booked for a foul on the halfway line. The last chance of the
game saw Dean save well from Brown-Hill as Marske’s dominant first half performance
was enough to seal the three points and lift them to 8th in the table, keeping alive their
slim play off hopes.

Full time: Stamford 0-3 Marske

This was a thoroughly deserved win for Marske who put Stamford to the sword in an
excellent first 45 minutes. The second half was a much more quiet affair with Marske
happy to sit back and soak up the pressure, with keeper Robert Dean rarely seriously
troubled, securing a second consecutive clean sheet for the Seasiders. The Supporters’
Club man of the match award went to two-goal hero Curtis Round.
