A professional performance, injuries galore and does anyone know what the theme is ?

Maghull 4-0 Vauxhall Motors Reserves

Saturday 23rd November 2013 kick off 2pm


A team in good form came to Old Hall Field on Saturday. And where quietly demolished.

Other than a strange moment with Lee Carrols footing, very early on, this was a performance that was one of the best of the season.

This Vauxhall side are no mugs, as last weeks result showed, but on Saturday it really was men against boys.In fact, after the torment given to the visitors right back by Lee Tynan, I would not have been surprised if the coach was planning to tranquilize him at the break. He did not appear for the second half. Lee Tynan was fed up another victim.

The breakthrough took longer than it should have. Tynan, himself, guilty of missing a good chance and then with a header he managed to put wide. Danny Dillon slotted home from all of a yard after Colin McDonald had his effort deflected and looped up over the stranded keeper. It may have been cleared, so that one yard tap in, was a vital touch.

The football on display was high quality and time and again the Vauxhall defence and midfield was ripped to shreds, but a loose final ball or miss control kept them in the game.

One nil at the break did not tell the true story, but that was soon to be rectified.

The visitors had a decent start to the second half, breaking out into attack with pace and giving Maghull something to think about. This short furore was dealt with comfortably and soon the game was based in and around Vauxhalls penalty box.

Rob Dutton and McDonald combined to set up Lee Tynan to knock home the second and the game was wrapped up. Danny Dillon continued Maghulls poor form from the spot, when McDonald was upended and saw the keeper save his effort. Eventually the third came, when McDonald broke the offside trap, rounded the keeper and tapped home.

With the game over as a spectacle and no blondes about (early kick off Derby games have a lot to answer for) we instead were treated to Marko Parvas giving his all in beating his man but striking the post, but there was no respite for the demoralised visitors, as Tom Wharton controlled the rebound and hit it home to bag the fourth.

It could and should have been many more, such was the dominance. As Derek would say, it was like watching Barcelona. With six lads out injured, who could so easily have made the starting line up, Phil and Stuart have the nicest of problems to deal with, when they become fit over the next seven to ten days. Now just the small matter of a top of the table clash next week.

There has been a theme this season and it will continue throughout the season. If anyone figures out what it is, let me know, not on here though. Because then it will get interesting... a possible goody bag at the end of season party if anyone cracks it. For Maghull peeps only. There has been a very easy clue already.
