BEMERTON Heath Harlequins produced a clinical and professional performance at home to Brockenhurst as they won 3-0 in the Wessex League Premier Division. The home side started in 4-4-2 formation with Robbie Matthews and Jack Slade leading the line.

It was obvious very early on that they were going to cause the visiting defence a lot of problems.

Brockenhurst did get the ball down and had a lot of possession in the midfield utilising their extra man in a 4-5-1 shape.

Bemerton were patient and although the visitors had lots of possession they were unable to create any clear chances, where as Bemerton looked like scoring at every opportunity.

Bemerton opening the scoring mid way through the half when a Seb Dawes free kick was deflected in to the path of Robbie Matthews who made no mistake with his left foot.

The second half was almost exactly the same as the first with the home side creating chance after chance. The Bemerton defence and goalkeeper were solid, disciplined and organised all afternoon.

Bemerton introduced Jordan Matthews on 65 minutes and he had an immediate impact scoring from close range to make it 2-0.

He would score his second and Bemerton's third late on when another substitute Kelvin Robinson crossed well for Jordan to head home.

FT: 3-0

Manager Rae Hughes said: " I am very pleased with the performance. We knew Brockenhurst would have possession with the way the sides set up, but with the attacking quality we have we know we will always score goals.

"Rob (Crossley) in goal and the back four were superb all afternoon. Attention turns to Tuesday and Shaftesbury away where we hope for another positive result.”
