Sam Ferretto drives home his first goal of the game to make the score 5-0.

Brook Street consigned AFC Gooners 1886 to an early return to Division V with an easy 8-0 win in Fife this afternoon. Doubles from Andrew Cleary, Attila Gyöngyösi and Sam Ferretto, along with singles from Matt Cocker and Krsto Grubić did the damage in a game that the New Home Park club dominated from start to finish.

“My players showed real commitment, professionalism and desire to win, and that played a big part in our win”, said Eike Alanne at the post-match press conference. “We eased up in the second half as the game was already won, and there was no real point in pressing the game”.

“We dominated the game right from the kick-off and played some great football”, he continued. “It was important that we kept the pressure on the teams chasing us, and we’ve done exactly that with our display today”.

“We’ve got a huge game next weekend against C.D. Tetescoces, and this result sets us up nicely for that”, he concluded.

Elsewhere, second-placed FC Scourie were 8-0 away winners at Swiss Ranger, C.D. Tetescoces had a good 2-0 win at MacAulays Saints, and BK Flowers ran out 3-0 winners in Dumfries against D & G Rovers.

Eike Alanne picked a blend of youth and experience to face AFC Gooners 1886 at New Home Park this afternoon, and the move paid dividends as Brook Street romped to an excellent 9-0 win in front of a crowd of just under 35,000.

The win takes Brook Street up to fourth in the table, just three points off top spot, but the performance is more important than league position as far as Eike is concerned.

“We worked exceptionally hard, and playing the mix of older heads alongside the younger players certainly paid off”, he said.

“All our scorers took their goals very well, and it is particularly pleasing that they came from all areas of the pitch”, Eike added. “That takes the pressure off our strikers, although they hit four of the goals today between them. It’s always good to see different scorers, and I’m particularly pleased for Conor Meldrum and Richard Gabriel who both netted their first senior goals today”.

He continued, “This was a big, big team performance, and every single player out there this afternoon deserves the ovation that the fans gave them at full-time. It was a performance worthy of a big win, and 9-0 didn’t flatter us, I don’t think”.

“This was the kind of league game that we’ll be bringing the young players into”, he added.

“They’ll never be of use to us if they only gain experience from friendlies and cup games. These boys are good enough, and they’ll be given their chance”.
