Saints U21's Send Eagles Flying

Saints U21's Send Eagles Flying

Martin Hunter's team were convincing winners at the club's training ground with five different scorers seeing off the Eagles. The game also marked the competitive return to action of defender Dan Seaborne.

The game began with Saints on the front foot and on two minutes Sam Hoskins picked up the ball midway through the Palace half and drilled a low shot wide of the keeper to open the scoring.

Goals came regularly and the second goal was made by Spaniard Yago Falque who set Lloyd Isgrove up for a coolly taken second.

By half time it was 3-0 with some delightful play setting up Falque for the third as he drove the ball low into the net.

The second half was another stroll in the park for Saints as they remained in control and added three more goals to their tally.

Some good work down the right followed by a superb cross from Hoskins allowed Lee Barnard the opportunity to open his account.

A flurry of substitutions where Seaborne successfully came through 70 minutes playing time preceded a quickfire second goal for BARNARD who benefitted from another Hoskins cross to turn hjome inside the six yard box.

Then to top it off, Calum CHAMBERS strolled through the middle and fired a low shot into the left side of the goal to add further shine to a polished performance from the home side.

Some good play was seen and the most pleasing thing was the sound return of Dan Seaborne after his horrific facial injury. Dan appeared cool and played well for the 70 minutes he was on the pitch.

Lee Barnard did well and Martin Hunter the manager was happy with the team's performance and the showing from the first teamers.
