Andrew Cleary nets his fourth goal of the game to wrap up the scoring at a 9-1 win to Brook Street.

Brook Street romped to an emphatic 9-1 demolition of BK Flowers in the Highlands this afternoon, with Andrew Cleary, the league’s top marksman, netting four of the goals.

“We did what we had to do”, said Brook Street’s coach Eike Alanne at full-time. “It wasn’t a classic”, he admitted, “but it’s another important three points. At this point in the season, that’s all that matters”.

Andrew Cleary fired the league leaders into the lead in the fifth minute, but it wasn’t until after half an hour that he added his, and Brook Street’s second.

Brook Street then added a third through Attila Gyöngyösi, but the home side quickly fired back, Ben-Zion Eshhar reducing the lead to two.

Conceding a goal clearly annoyed the Brook Street players however, and within sixty seconds the three-goal advantage was restored, Sam Ferretto breaking through to blast home.

Brook Street weren’t finished there however, and Andrew Cleary made sure he was taking the match ball home two minutes before the break.

The Monifieth side were out of site by this point, and it became a question of ‘how many’? However, it took until seventy-three minutes before Brook Street found the net again, this time through Phil Mullally.

Sam Ferretto made it 7-1 five minutes later, before Phil Mullally made it eight, five minutes from time. Brook Street weren’t finished yet, and it was tormentor-in-chief Andrew Cleary who wrapped up the scoring with a real predator’s strike a minute later.

The win keeps Brook Street a point ahead of MacAulays Saints and two ahead of fc scourie. With these two facing each other next weekend, someone is going to lose out and with only three games remaining, it could prove pivotal at a crucial time in the season.

Brook Street stormed to a fourth successive league victory with a blistering display that saw BK Flowers wilt under the onslaught. To be fair, the 4-0 victory could have and possibly should have been more comprehensive, but for some excellent goalkeeping by Joe Tweeddell.

Brook Street dominated from first whistle to last, but barely got out of second gear as Eike acknowledged afterwards.

“We dominated the game all over the park and in some respects it was similar to a training match. Peppering their goal with shots probably didn’t help either as we eased off after a while, and by the end we were down to walking pace”.

He continued, “I must however pay tribute to their goalkeeper who pulled off two top class saves in the first half. Had either of those gone in, I think the scoreline could have ended up more representative of the way the game panned out”.

“However”, he added, “we’re playing good football and our plan seems to be coming together well, so I’m not going to be overly critical of the lads for easing up.

Andrew Cleary opened the scoring within the first 120 seconds of the game, and added a second before half an hour had elapsed. Alex Clapperton added the third thirteen minutes into the second half and Nicky Breaden knocked in his fourth league goal of the season to wrap up the scoring after sixty-nine minutes.

The win keeps Brook Street in second place, a point behind fc scourie.

Nicky Breaden curls an absolute peach of a shot into the postage stamp to begin the rout this afternoon.

It would appear that Dumfries and Galloway Rovers are destined for a swift return to Division V, and Brook Street certainly helped them on their way with an 9-0 humiliation on their own patch this afternoon.

Brook Street were quickest out of the traps, and with only three minutes on the clock Nicky Breaden blasted home the opening goal. Andrew Cleary added a second seven minutes later, and by the time half an hour was played Brook Street were already out of sight; further goals from Lewis Espley, Eike Alanne, and Sam Ferretto put Brook Street in complete control.

Second half goals from Andrew Cleary, Matt Cocker, Liam Christie and Eike Alanne merely served to illustrate Brook Street’s complete dominance and improve the New Home Park side’s goals for tally, to such an extent that at full-time they were in second place, just a point off fc scourie in top spot but with a greater goal difference.

However, Eike was quick to play this down at the post-match press conference.

“Promotion is not our aim this season; we’re nowhere near ready to go up, and if we did, we’d just come straight back down, so it would be pointless for us to do so”.

“We’re on a long-term building strategy, and that’s exactly where our aims and goals lie. Any talk of challenging for titles is very premature”, he added.

Turning to his side’s demolition of Rovers, the Brook Street gaffer said, “It’s always good to get high-scoring wins under our belt, but it’s of little use in anything other than boosting our morale. No disrespect meant, but bots are the whipping-boys and nothing more”.

Asked about his players’ performance he replied, “We scored goals and the younger players have gained more experience. Stamina levels are on the rise and everything is looking good. What more can I say other than today’s game is not the game to judge my team’s performance on; judge them against BK Flowers next week”.
