Score: Team Bath 13 – 1 Newbury
Venue: Founders Hall, University of Bath
Team Bath moved top of the Midlands Conference with a superb 13-1 victory over Newbury Futsal Club.
With a full side Bath started at a steady pace working out their opposition.
Warning shots were fired in from Parkes and Ingram that were saved but this was a sign of things to come.
Soon after Ingram found Parkes with a quick one two down the right and Parkes on the return pass toe poked the ball home to give Bath the lead.
At the back end of the first half Newbury did have one or two moments with shots well saved by Dix in the Bath goal.
Before half time though Bath regained control and scored two quick goals through Parkes and Yilmaz to make it 3-0 at the break.
Coach Kitson wanted his team to raise its standards and game intensity for the second half and his team duly obliged.
Within two minutes the team added a fourth goal through Dorin sliding in at the back post from a crisp n Ingram diagonal pass before Yilmaz laid on Ingram to score to make it 5-0.
Now Bath really raised the tempo as more players got on the score sheet.
Kitson added a sixth after great workdby league Debutant Gavaghan who set the ball beautifully for the strike which was followed by two more goals from Parkes, two for Captain Jennings another for Yilmaz and Ingram as well as one for Grahame Gardiner.
Further opportunities did present themselves to the team and although Newbury did manage to get one goal on the break they looked a beaten team.
Bath will take confidence from this game from winning, but winning in style. All players looked composed and effective on the ball and it was very pleasing that debutant Patrick Gavaghan slotted into the team with ease impressing in his first national league match.
The team now play host to Team United Birmingham next Sunday at 15:00 which will be another tough game.
Team Bath: Dix (GK), Kitson, Jennings (c), Parkes, Ingram, Dorin, Yilmaz, Gardiner, Clarke, Gavaghan (MOM), Lima (GK)
The club would like to thank all those who came out and supported the team at this game.
We really appreciate it and it was great to have a crowd watching Futsal.
We hope you come again next Sunday 15:00 kick off at the Founders Hall.
