BEMERTON Heath Harlequins travelled to Petersfield Town who were two places below, Bemerton, but that didn't stop the demolition of the Hampshire side, as Bemmy ran out 5-0 winners.

Jack Slade, Robbie Matthews, Charlie Young and Russell Jones were all unavailable in the crucial bottom of the table clash but that gave opportunities to others who hadn’t been getting much game time recently.

Petersfield started the game on top as it seemed to take Bemerton a while to settle down and get used to the surface and tricky conditions.

But Harlequins weathered the storm and kept their shape very well. The midfield three of Jake Burgess, Alex Haynes and Seb Dawes started to move the ball quickly and get the ball in to wide areas where Jake Rawkins and Jordan Matthews could hurt the opposition defence.

And it was 18 year old Matthews who opened the scoring when he finished neatly at the back post.

Bemerton then made it two shortly after the break when a Rawkins corner was met again by the impressive Scott Hassell.

Bemmy continued to dominate going forward and it didn’t take long for Matthews to get his second and Bemerton’s third of the game when he rounded the keeper and tucked the ball home.

The fourth goal of the game came when more good work from Rawkins on the left created an opening for the hard working Kelvin Robinson to power home from close range.

And the fifth and final goal of the game came from that man Matthews again who completed his hat trick with a superb finish in to the top left side of the net.

Manager Rae Hughes said after the game: “A fantastic result, and a crucial three points against a team just below us.

"My back four and keeper were absolutely superb all afternoon.

"I'm delighted for Jordan as well, he has had to be very patient of late because of the run we have been on but he got his chance today and took it with both hands. To see an 18 year old score a hat trick and put in a performance like that it very satisfying.

"The average age today was 21, made up mostly of local players. We are far from the finished article but we are heading in the right direction.”
