Andy Hunter drives home his third goal of the game against Cleverley Stars this morning.

Brook Street’s reserves hit the goal trail again this morning with a 6-0 win over Ghanaian visitors Cleverley Stars at New Home Park.

Andy Hunter hit his second hat-trick in as many games and there was a debut goal for new signing Oscar MacVarish. Abel Soffia and Fraser Carragher hit our other goals.

“It was a good workout for the lads and we tried out a few new things”, claimed Marcus afterwards. He continued, “Everything worked well today, but I know there’s no substitute for competitive matches, and there’s no guarantee that they’d work as well in that scenario”.

The coach was also pleased with the performance of Andy Hunter who netted his second hat-trick in a row, saying, “Andy is proving to be quite prolific at the moment and it’s particularly pleasing that he has risen to the challenge”.

Marcus added, “He’s seized the opportunity with both hands, and has I feel all but earned his chance in the first team”.

On new signing Oscar MacVarish he said, “Oscar showed great composure with his finish today and his superior fitness certainly showed later in the game. He’s got great vision and will be a huge asset in our midfield”.

While Oscar may well be in line for a start on Saturday, it’s unclear when Andy Hunter will get his chance as the coach indicated that “plugging the holes at the back” was his main priority. That could indicate that more defensive displays could be in the offing although the coach naturally declined to comment.
