Burpham’s biggest goal threats come from M Hunt with 12 goals from 11 (Leading scorer in Division 1), S Khere with 9 goals from 14 and S Lydon with 9 goals from 12.
One other fact we know about Burpham is that they like to introduce youth player into the first team, which we at Lyne endorse and respect.
Lyne F.C however continues their unbeaten run, now racking up 17 victories on the bounce. The last of these victories was against a very competitive Holmbury St Mary’s team which matched Lyne for best part of the game, but Lyne came away with the 2-1 win keeping our run intact.
By the time the Lyne team face Burpham in the Cup we will have had 2/3 training sessions under our belt to blow away the over indulgence over the Xmas period and will be firing on all four cylinders for our first match of the 2016 campaign.
Lyne will have a fully fit squad to choose from including Tom who has been out for some time undergoing treatments for a knee injury. Apart from Ryan who will be serving the first of his two match suspension after receiving his marching orders in the dying minutes of the Holmbury game, JT In Spain and Oat in Thailand the rest are good to go!!.
Lyne F.C very much looks forward to welcoming Burpham to the Meadhurst, and we are sure this match will be highly entertaining being a Cup match.
K.O WILL BE 1.30 PM @ MEADHURST CLUB ON SATURDAY 9TH JANUARY.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE.
