FOUR GOALS IN EACH HALF AS HOOPS THRASH LOCAL RIVALS

Catholic United emphatically swept aside local rivals Old Southendian 8-0 at The Len Salmon Stadium on Wednesday night.

Braces from Aaron Baldwin, Jamie Salmon & Tony Jacobs along with strikes from Louis Robinson & Max Kent ensured the Hoops avenged their dismal display in November’s reverse fixture.

Defeat at Garons Park sparked the revival for Dan Trenkel’s side who in the nine league games since have collected 24 points with a 33 goal difference swing in their favour.

With top scorer Tom Hollingsworth ruled out through injury, new recruit Simon Thomas partnered Baldwin upfront as Trenkel adopted Mike Bassett’s revolutionary formation proclaiming ‘Catholic United win be playing four-four-f******-two.’

And with a couple of minutes on the clock, the pair combined to give the home side the lead - Mark Baptist’s diagonal cross was headed across goal by Thomas for Baldwin to prod home.

Louis Robinson was next on the scoresheet when he turned in from close range before Baldwin doubled his tally for the evening. Assisted by the head of Thomas once again, the striker precisely struck a left footed finish across the Old Boys goalkeeper. Proper old-fashioned Brexit football.

Then, 10 minutes before half-time Salmon scored Catholic’s fourth with the game’s outstanding moment. Abandoning the tache, glasses & dodgy Scouse accent, Trenkel morphed into a Catalonian with a similar hairstyle as a stunning one touch counter-attacking move culminated with Jacobs sliding in the midfielder to convert.

Salmon scored his 15th of the season from the spot after half time when Jacobs was clumsily challenged inside the box, before the latter turned scorer to make it six.

Continuing to press from the front, the visitors - who were back to 11 men following Ed Gould’s sin bin - failed to play out from back as Thomas dispossessed the defence to set up the winger for a simple finish.

Jacobs struck again soon after for his 7th for the club & Catholic’s on the night before Kent round off the scoring with a low left-footed free-kick.

The Hoops round off a busy week with the visit of Springfield on Saturday before turning attention to cup action next month.

All the best for the rest of the season, Old Boys.
