Record Breaker! Muhammad Noorani fires in our twelfth goal to secure a new record victory.

Brook Street crushed FC POLAND this afternoon to create another piece of club history. Only once previously, in a friendly, had a Brook Street team scored twelve goals without reply, but that is exactly what Leoš Loos’ charges did to better the club’s previous best of 11-1 for a competitive game.

Loos himself was the tormentor-in-chief, netting four times, despite playing a role behind the front two of Andrew Cleary and Muhammad Noorani who themselves bagged one and two goals respectively.

In addition, Emanuel Bohucký, Andy Harte, Phil Mullally, Garabed Palasyan and Abel Soffia all scored, meaning that the entire front line and midfield scored in the record-breaking win.

Afterwards, Leoš Loos played down his four goals saying, “This was a real team effort, We played some excellent football and I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time”.

He continued, “Playing behind the front two worked well. Andrew and Muhammad are so quick that they can pull defences apart leaving space for me to run into. We got the ball into dangerous positions and we capitalised on that to the full. Fourteen chances; twelve goals says it all”.

The coach was also full of praise for the defence who not only kept a clean sheet, but also denied the home side a single chance.

“We defended a high line with Andy Harte dropping back to close the gap in the centre, and today it worked to perfection. The first line of defence is attack, and to that extent, we all had a hand in this clean sheet, but the defence and midfielders deserve credit.

With results elsewhere going as predicted, the win did not improve Brook Street’s league position, but it easily made them the league’s top scorers. Indeed, no-one improved their league position and Brook Street remain three points adrift of early pace-setters Stirling Bridge and a point behind next week’s visitors to NHP, Basel-Celtic.
