Home advantage showed early as Boco immediately got to work attacking the Thornbury goal. Greener soon fired off a cross that met Jack Ball's head which the keeper had to jump to save.Jack Madge made a huge kick that passed the half way line to Jack Green he shot hard and t e keeper had to palm the ball away for a corner. A fine corner by Bradley met Tom Norley's head which sailed just above the bar. Brad, Alex and Sam showed great skills moving the ball effortlessly across the ground.  Alex, Greener and  Tom Patton all had shots denied it was on the 25 minute mark that a free kick on the edge of the box saw the ball reach Alex Whale who span and placed the ball with a thunderous shot into the right hand corner beyond the keepers reach.Thornbury looked dangerous when on the break  but Callum, Liam ,Madgey and Luke all dealt with the danger coolly and calmly. on the stroke of half time Alex fed a cross to Jack Ball who fed it through the defenders to tap in number two.

The second half saw Will,Joe and Josh replace Callum, Brad and Sam.Boco kept the pressure up from the off ensuring the ball stayed in the Thornbury half. Josh fed the ball through to Jack Ball who found Alex in the box his cross again found the head of Greener for goal number three.Joe had some great runs from midfield and was brought down in the box. The referee immediately pointed to the spot. Jack Green stepped up and blasted it high over the bar  into the next field. the attack on goal was relentless and Alex and Sam both  hit the post and Greener's shot was cleared off the line. It was only the outstanding skill of the Thornbury keeper that kept the score to three. Towards the end Thornbury were awarded a penalty but Madgey made himself big and saved the ball keeping the final score at 3-0
