Eliseo Albeiros fires home the first of his three goals in a perfect debut.

A debut hat-trick by Elisio Albeiros was the main highlight as Brook Street hit seven goals without reply against Hungarian visitors Miskolci Hazafiak in our friendly match at New Home Park this morning. The Spaniard had been brought in as a short-term replacement while Garabed Palasyan and Abel Soffia were sidelined, however performances such as today’s may well force coach Leoš Loos to consider a more permanent arrangement.

“Yes, his finishing was clinical, but our build-up play was also worthy of note”, said the coach. “He’s fast and is good with both feet so he’s definitely an asset to have in our arsenal”.

He continued, “Performing like that in friendlies is one thing, but if Elisio plays like that in the league, we might have to look at making the move more long-term”.

“However”, he said, “it’s early days, so we’ll just have to see how it goes”.

Sam Ferretto opened the scoring with a diving header with only three minutes played before Eliseo doubled the lead on the half hour mark. Over the following eleven minutes, he completed his hat-trick before Zsolt Baboss, making his comeback from injury, made it 5-0 a minute before the break.

Muhammad Noorani made it six in the sixty-sixth minute and Alex Clapperton wrapped up the scoring nine minutes from time.

Fortunately the squad suffered no further injuries and with Zsolt Baboss returning from injury, the side is starting to get back to full strength as the coach noted.

“Zsolt came through unscathed and Garabed is progressing well, so we’re hopeful of being at full-strength for the potential title-decider against The Tiny Spacemen a week on Saturday”.
