HOOPS HIT CRESSING FOR SIX

Catholic United advanced into the Essex Premier Cup second round following a comfortable 6-2 win against Cressing FC.

Braces from Billy Shulver & Tom Hollingsworth, along with efforts from Thomas Kearney & Harley Kee, ensured the victory for last season’s beaten finalists.

Due to a clash with Bowers & Pitsea’s home FA Cup qualifying round match, the familiar Len Forge 4G surface played host as the Hoops dominated the opening 45 minutes.

The first goal came after five minutes when Mark Baptist broke down the left & delivered an inviting low cross to the back post for stand-in captain Kearney to turn in.

Shulver doubled the advantage soon after with a delightful lob as it broke to him on the edge of the box before grabbing his second following a neat one-two with Kearney.

Only for some complacency in front of goal, Dan Trenkel’s side should have been further out of sight but did manage to get a fourth before half time when Baptist disposed the right back & laid it on a plate for Hollingsworth to score.

The home team struggled to continue where they left off as the Essex & Suffolk Border Division One side made the first breakthrough after the break, capitalising on a defensive mistake.

This only snapped Catholic back into action when substitute Carl Read squared for Hollingsworth to double his tally.

Again, Cressing got one back with an unstoppable free-kick before Kee rounded off a fine performance as the visitors’ goalkeeper was unable to hold onto Jamie Salmon’s free-kick.

Best of luck to Cressing for the rest of the season. Catholic United return to league action next Saturday as they travel to Kelvedon Hatch looking for their first league win of the season.
