Coningsby Reserves 0, Sibsey 6.

When Coningsby Reserves ran out on Saturday for a rescheduled home game with top of the division Sibsey it was like the proverbial lambs to the slaughter.

Just two minutes had elapsed when the visitors dashed up the left wing and scored to give just a hint of what was to come.

Sibsey were simply faster and fitter than the Reds Reserves, who must have soon realised that they were out of their depth.

They helped the visitors on several occasions and Sibsey were quick to capitalise on their generosity. Basic errors like leaving the goalie isolated and alone, leaving a striker unmarked on the far post and trying to dribble a ball out of the box when a hefty boot was needed all contributed to the Sibsey score which at half time was 4-0.

The fresh legs provided by substitutions only eased the agony for Coningsby, but did not cure the sickness.
