Football: Thurrock win out in six goal thriller

Ryman Div One North

Thurrock 4 v 2 Redbridge

YOU clearly get value for money down at Ship Lane and this match re-inforced that with a six goal thriller.

It took until the 43rd minute before the first goal was scored as Thurrock’s Leslie Thompson scored a re-bound.

Halfway through the half Redbridge were reduced to ten men when Kacey Adams was sent off for an off the ball incident yet only five minutes later Redbridge equalised when Rhys Madden brought down a Redbridge forward to receive a yellow card and give away a penalty which Patrick Damali dispatched with ease.

The scores only remained level for only three minutes. Remi Sutton drove forwards from the halfway line into the area and didn’t mess around, putting his laces through the ball to beat Parker at his near post.

Redbridge came back again and when the ball came in from a corner an altercation in the area saw Rhys Madden receive a second yellow along with a straight red for Redbridge’s Tyron Thomas with a second penalty awarded.

Kurt Smith made way for Jordon Warren whose first touch was to pick the ball out the net after being sent the wrong way by Gavin Cockman.

Again Thurrock responded and again it was Leslie Thompson supplying the cross for Ross Wall to head inside the post.

Thurrock slowed the game down and spent five minutes playing keep ball before Leslie Thompson repaid a favour by playing in Lewwis Spence who hit the ball first time and through Parker’s legs.
