Wisdom Sports II (Away) - Division 1
Result: 5 - 0 (Win)

Scorers: Kevern, Keane, Fugl, Shaldoum, Baker

Lindfield's reserves kept up their 100% start to the season with a comprehensive victory over local rivals Wisdoms. The swan's started brightly and Wisdoms keeper was worked within the first five minutes when he got down well to turn a Kieran Lee effort round the post after good work from dave Keane and Shaun Kevern created the opportunity. It wasn't long before the dominance paid off, when Kevern found some space in the box from a corner, and slammed in at the near post from an acute angle to give them the lead. This was quickly followed by a second when Keane went through after a Baz Irvine pass was dummied by Kevern and the in form striker finished calmly. lindfield looked solid and went further ahead before the break when the ball fell to Sam Baker's right boot 25 yards out, the workhorse midfielder let fly and drilled an unstoppable third past the opposition keeper. Wisdoms has a couple of half chances from corners, but their best chances both sailed over the bar.

The second half was more of the same, with Ashdown and the Shaldoum Brothers at the back dealing with any threats posed by the opposition brilliantly. Lindfield had chances to increase their lead when a sizzler from Baker flew inches away from making it a stunning double, Wisons keeper excellently kept out a good Keane effort, and Fugl put wide when in a good position. Their determination paid off though when a corner was prodded home by Karim Shaldoum for the visitors fourth, and soon after Fugl punished a rare goalkeeping error from wisdoms stopper (who had an impressive game otherwise) to complete the scoring. Lindfield could have scored a couple more late on, but efforts from Elliot Crouch and Keane were saved by the keeper and off target respectively.

Another good performance by the lads, who also welcomed keeper Ian 'Cow' Ellison back to the side. His clean sheet was helped by MOM Peter Ashdown, who was a rock at the centre of defence, organised the backline perfectly and also managed to carve a couple of half chances for himself at the other end.
