Brook Street ran riot in Uganda tonight winning 10-0 against an under strength Uganda Tuga side in our friendly match. There were hat-tricks for Matt Cocker and Phil Mullally, a brace for new signing Muhammad Noorani and singles for Andrew Cleary and Fraser Carragher.

Afterwards Marcus Lövman admitted playing against an under strength side took the gloss off the win.

“I’d rather draw against a full strength side rather than rattle in a lot of goals against an under strength one”. He continued, “It’s maybe good for morale in the dressing room, but for assessing our players it’s virtually useless”.

“That said, we knocked the ball about well and showed a real killer instinct in front of goal, so in that respect we did our job”.

The coach had special praise for new signing Muhammad Noorani who netted not only his first goals for the club, but also his first senior goals.

“Muhammad did exceptionally well given that he flew overnight to join us here. To get two goals in your first match for a club would be impressive, but to do it in your first senior game and after flying thousands of miles to do so is quite outstanding”.
