Portishead back to winning ways
By Peter Noble
The Alex and Alex Show!
With players injured and with Tom Averley away on trial with Yeovil - Portishead were able to field 11 players and won emphatically vs a Bristol Central side who only lost 1-0 the week before vs Bristol Manor Farm.
Alex Esposito is in the form of his life and opened the scoring after 10 minutes after getting on the end of a through ball and finishing into the far corner past the Bristol Central keeper for 1-0
New signing Alex Boyd a U12 showed no signs of being intimidated by the fact he was playing considerably bigger lads and was instrumental in the next 2 goals setting up Alex Esposito each time with Boyd powering through the defence and sliding in balls to his namesake each time to put Portishead 3-0 up and give Alex Esposito a hat-trick after just 25 minutes.
Bristol Central was to get a goal back before half-time.
Sammy Foster in what might be his last match for Portishead as he heads off to Yeovil for an 8-week trial set up Alex Esposito who just couldn't stop scoring for 4-1
With a strong wind against Portishead backs 5-1 came directly from a Sammy Foster corner as the ball flew into the top corner.
The hard-working Jenson in the centre of the park again won another challenge in the centre before laying the ball off to James Tait who was playing on the right wing and with his left wand, he fired a sweet finish into the top corner despite the keeper getting a hand to it to make it 6-1
A hat-trick of assists from Alex Boyd again working the ball to Alex Esposito who grabbed his 5th goal of the game and to put Portishead 7-1 up
Portishead wait to see the availability of players as Sammy Foster now heads off to Yeovil for an 8-week trial and Piotr Petrynski who is heading off for a trial with Bristol Rovers.
