Whaley continue where they left off last week with some excellent attacking play.

You wouldn’t have thought Greenhalls regular keeper Trubshaw was away; despite the 7 goals stand in keeper Alex Hardman made some outstanding saves in what was Whaley’s best attacking display so far this season.

Greenhall created the first opportunity; a good move involving the impressive young Farrelly, Ellis Houghton & Horner all linked well around the edge of Whaley’s box but Tattersall held on to the final shot from 18 yards. Whaley then had several attacks involving Morris, Kelly & J Burgess but the final touch that was missing; Sam Leadbetter had two open goals but just couldn’t get enough on the ball to see it over the line. Another Whaley corner was headed superbly down towards the far post, text book style, by Sutton but Hardman saved well and held onto the ball.

It was a move started by J Burgess and finished by J Burgess that finally broke the deadlock. Joe picked up the ball in midfield, played it in the channel for Jack Kelly who controlled to pull it back for Joe to curl his left foot shot into the far bottom corner. Dead ball specialist Dan Gilbride then caressed his free kick into the top corner followed by a solo effort from Sam Leadbetter to send the home side in at the break 3 up.

Whaley came out and for once maintained the pressure throughout, J Burgess came off injured so new boy Liam Millen went up top with Kelly. A solo run by Barlow down the right saw his deep cross come shot sneak in under the bar at the far post. Then Gilbride treated the spectators to something a bit special as he stepped up to smash a 30yrd free kick into Hardmans far right top corner, the ball still rising as it hit the net to make it 5 nil.

Kelly & Millen linked well from the off; Millen picking the ball up on the left played a reverse pass into Kelly’s path and Jack instinctively shot past the advancing keeper for number 6. Gilbride wasn’t finished as he nailed yet another free kick goal ward bound for his deserved hatrick and number 7.

Whaley’s move of the day started with some first time passing across the back before Jamie kay released Sam Leadbetter, his first time cross was superbly volleyed by Morris at the back post but Hardman again made an outstanding save to deny Lee.

A good solid attractive footballing performance against a hard working Greenhalls team with some outstanding goals on the day provided another treat for the spectators; the home side still undefeated at Horwich Park.
