Winchester City 4-3 Shortwood United

(Richard Hayter)

A fantastic game of attacking football from both sides at the Denplan today, with Craig Feeney scoring three goals and Stuart Mott getting the other.

The first half had hardly started when Craig Feeney scored with a lovely lob over the keeper inside the first minute following some skilful passing football from the back, 1-0.

Shortwood soon equalised with the City defence wide open, 1-1.

City restored the lead with Stuart Mott heading home following a corner 2-1,

City were playing some brilliant football going forward and Craig Feeney hit the crossbar with a fierce shot but sad to say the defence was not so good allowing Shortwood to equalise again with a soft header that crept in at the far post, 2-2.

But, there was no stopping City and man of the moment Craig Feeney bursting past his marker and smashing the ball past the keeper, a quite brilliant goal 3-2.

Then to finish the half on a high Craig hit the post. H.T. 3-2.

The second half was nearly all City with Craig getting his third when he headed in a cross from Joe Briggs 4-2.but a very good Shortwood side were not finished yet and scored their third 4-3.

City were still attacking and Joe Briggs hit a thunderbolt from distance that the keeper just tipped over the bar so, it finished 4-3, and for entertainment and value for money City were on fire at times playing superb football. A most enjoyable afternoon, well done lads.
