First team update sponsored by Powercor.
Since our last update the 1st team have played six matches, four being League, one League Cup and one County Cup.
This update starts with a home match against a good Burpham F.C side at home.
Lyne pretty well bossed best part of the match, ending up 8-0 winner.
Goals for Jordan Esprit x 2, Ryan Esprit x 1 Felipe Lima x 4 and Ben Placito x 1.
Man of the match was Felipe Lima.
Second up in the League was Tongham away.
Lyne made a real meal out of this match especially in the first half when our performance was poor. The second half however we gained a reaction and ended up with a 1-4 victory.
Goals for Ashley Crowe x 1, Jordan Esprit x 2 and Ryan Esprit x 1.
Man of the match was Ryan Esprit
Third up in the League was Old Salesians from Farnborough at home.
Once again Lyne was not firing on all four cylinders but as usual come good winning 3-0.
Goals for Jordan Esprit x 3
Man of the match was Luke Edgecombe
Our four League match to update you on was a real battle against our closest rivals, Worplesdon Phoenix. When we say it was a battle… it was a great game of football with a bit of everything but Lyne managed to edge it 4-3.
Goals from Jordan Esprit x 3 and Huw Johnson x 1
Man of the match was Jordan Esprit.
So a roundup of our League performances so far this season….
Played 7, Won 7, Drawn 0, Lost 0
Goals for 36, Goals against 6, Goal difference +30, Points 21.
So Lyne F.C are currently top of the League unbeaten, currently top of the fair play league, currently top of the sportsmanship league and top of the highest goal scorers league with Jordan Esprit leading the way with 20 goals.
I think it’s fair to say we are having a successful league campaign so far!
The League Cup:
In our second League Cup match of the season it see us up against a good Milford and Witley side from the division above.
Lyne once again on paper underdogs but the team showed their quality coming through the match 5-1 winners.
Goals for Jordan Esprit x 2 Jake Hambleton x 2 and Charlie Hearl x 1.
Man of the match was Jordan Wain (Fudge)
So into the Quarter finals we go with hopes of another cup final in our sights….
The County Cup:
We drew Windlesham and Lightwater in the 2nd round of the County Cup who once again play their football in the division above Lyne.
Lyne made hard work of this cup match once again but ended up with a 5-3 victory and into the hat for the next round.
As you can see your first team have continued in the victorious ways of last season and are desperate to achieve a double again this season but our true aim is to achieve the triple.
If you are free on a Saturday afternoon please feel free to pop down, have a cup of tea/burger and enjoy what your first team have to offer!
