Adam Humphrey blast home a peach of a half-volley to open the scoring in this morning’s friendly.

First half goals from Adam Humphrey and Sam Ferretto were enough to see off French side Bisounours Utd at New Home Park in this morning’s friendly match.

Although billed as a friendly match, the game was played at a frantic pace, and while not a dirty game, no quarter was either asked for, or given. This didn’t seem to suit the referee however who waved four yellow cards during the game, both sides being shown two apiece.“

That was a good game for the spectators, and I’m reasonably satisfied with the performance”, said Eike. “We were wasteful in front of goal, and I feel if we could have shown a bit more composure we could have scored more. That said, we kept another clean sheet, although that too could be put down to poor finishing”.

With the exception of Eike himself, there were no new injuries, and he will have almost a full squad at his disposal for Saturday’s make or break match at Macauleys Saints.

Adam Humphrey meets the cross perfectly to power the ball into the net.

Brook Street romped to an impressive 9-0 win over German visitors Kuschelbärenbande at New Home Park this morning with braces for Lachlan MacKinnon, Sam Ferretto and Matt Cocker. Adam Humphrey, Lewis Espley and Conor Meldrum got the other Brook Street goals in a match where their steely determination was faced by a cuddly toy bear in comparison.

“We were far superior in every department”, said Eike Alanne after the match. “We imposed ourselves on the game and there was no way we were going to concede. We were absolutely determined that would not happen”.

The Brook Street players managed to get through the match without picking up any knocks, so Eike will have a full squad to choose from for Saturday’s hugely important home match against C.D. Tetescoces.

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.

Sam Ferretto rises high to head home to open the scoring against D & G Rovers; the first of his four goals.

Brook Street romped to an emphatic 10-0 win over Dumfries and Galloway Rovers in front of just over 53,000 spectators at New Home Park this afternoon, and with the exception of the handful of hardy souls who made the trip from the south-west, all left the ground at full-time jubilant mood.

Following MacAulays Saints’ surprise defeat, the win saw the Monifieth extend their lead in the title race to two points with FC Scourie now our nearest challengers.

“We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves despite the results today”, said Eike Alanne afterwards. “We played exceptionally well and got the win we deserved”, he said, “but we’ve still got a lot of work to do”.

“That said”, he continued, “the team are playing well, so it’s only natural that the fans will start to think about titles and suchlike. With backing like we had this afternoon, that’s almost worth a goal of a start, and we are all hugely appreciative of it”.

Rovers had proved to be stubborn opposition, and had come with the sole intention of ‘parking the bus’, but once Sam Ferretto netted the opener with thirty-five minutes played, the roof caved-in and goals from Attila Gyöngyösi, Sam’s second, and Matt Cocker in as many minutes killed off any resistance.

Brook Street eased up slightly, but Rovers were in such a mess that goals from Andrew Cleary either side of half-time had the New Home Park side six-up with just over an hour played.

Matt Cocker bagged his second of the game midway through the second half before Sam wrapped up his hat-trick with ten minutes to go.

Brook Street weren’t about to shut up shop at this point, and two minutes later Alex Clapperton finished off a fantastic move, with a finish worthy of the brilliant play which preceded it.

However it was Man of the Match, Sam Ferretto who completed the scoring, rising high to power home a trademark header which left the Rovers keeper grasping thin air.

It won’t be very often that Brook Street will go with three up front, but as Eike pointed out, “When they’re all playing so well, how can I leave one of them out?”

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.

Fraser Caragher fires us back into the lead in extra-time.

Brook Street’s reserves “got an excellent workout this morning”, according to Coach Eike Alanne, eventually running out 5-3 winners after extra time against Stella Rossa Firenze at New Home Park.

Twice the Italians had been in front, but the predominantly young Brook Street side showed great character to fight back.

“The longer the match went on, the better and stronger we got. Red Star just couldn’t keep up with us in extra time”, said Eike. “That is proof if any were needed that our training regime is working well”, he added.

“We were a little wasteful in front of goal, but we’re definitely heading in the right direction”.
The Italians took the lead in the seventh minute through Augusto Bragadin, but Adam Humphrey quickly had us back on level terms.

Frank Boszhart fired the Reds back in front after twenty-two minutes, which remained the position until Lewis Espley tied things up again around the hour mark.

However, Brook Street had their tails up and Matt Cocker fired home in sixty-six minutes to put the home side in front for the first time. That lead lasted only six minutes before Mauro Goretti coolly rolled in the equaliser.

The match then became something of a midfield stalemate at this point with both sides cancelling each other out, and there was an air of inevitability that the match was heading for extra-time.

And it was the home side who would prove to be the stronger in the extra half hour.

Fraser Caragher, a second half substitute for the injured Richard Gabriel, drew first blood, rifling home an unstoppable shot three minutes into extra-time.

This seemed to knock the stuffing out of the Reds, and Brook Street killed the game just two minutes later when Sam Ferretto rounded the keeper to secure the win.

Eike Alanne fires us into the lead with less that 120 seconds played.

Brook Street recorded a comfortable 6-0 win over Swedish visitors, zeni, at New Home Park this morning, but Coach Eike Alanne surprised everyone in the ground by fielding the full strength first team.

Defending the decision he said, “We face the now ownerless and managerless Swiss Ranger here on Saturday, and in light of this we perhaps have more leeway than normal in our team selection for the weekend match”.

“As a result, we’ll be fielding some of our younger players which will give them more experience. This will be more beneficial to them and to the club than fielding them in a friendly, so we too the decision to field the first team”.

He continued, “We haven’t picked up any injuries, so it’s been a win/win for us today”.

Brook Street were quick off the mark again this morning, hitting three goals in the opening five minutes through Eike Alanne, Alex Clapperton and Sam Ferretto.

Andrew Cleary made it 4-0 before half an hour had elapsed, with the other goals from Phil Mullally and Attila Gyöngyösi coming in the second half.

Sam Ferretto celebrates the second of his two goals against fox-blue this afternoon.

French side fox-blue were caught in the Brook Street juggernaut headlights this afternoon as the Scots romped to a 7-0 win in the Mediterranean sunshine.

Conor Meldrum fired the visitors into a seventh minute lead, which Sam Ferretto doubled with twenty-five minutes played. Just on for the injured Lewis Espley, Alex Clapperton fired in our third goal just after the half-hour mark before two goals in three minutes from Sam Ferretto and Nicky Breaden had Brook Street five-up at the break.

With the game well and truly won, Eike Alanne’s charges took the foot off the gas in the second half, but still managed to find the net twice through Krsto Grubić and Nicky Breaden to wrap up a very convincing win.

“We’re really starting to click”, said Eike afterwards. “We’re playing some outstanding football and the youngsters are all progressing very well. I’m very pleased how things are turning out”.

Turning to the injury sustained by Lewis Espley he said, “He’s got a thigh injury and it looks initially as if he could be missing for up to a fortnight. Obviously, we’re hopeful he’ll be back before that, but it’ll take as long as it takes; we’ll not be rushing him back”.

He continued, “Lewis’s injury aside, it’s been a very good trip for us, and sets us up nicely for our trip to the Highlands to face FC Scourie on Saturday”.

Richard Gabriel's wonder strike turns the game on its head as Brook Street take the lead.

Richard Gabriel’s wonder strike turns the game on its head as Brook Street take the lead.

Having given Bandits Utd a two-goal start, Brook Street stormed back to win this morning’s Diddy Cup tie at The Bloated Dome to progress to the Fifth Round where they will face Celtic Garfin.

While he was less than impressed by manner in which the two goals were conceded, Eike Alanne praised the attitude and desire to win shown by his players to come back and win the match so comfortably.

“We were very slack for the opening goal, and to concede it from a set-piece isn’t good at all. Then, having seen that Maragnano was clearly going to be the target man, we switched off as the ball came across and he got his second. We’ve got to concentrate far better and either mark the target man closer, or even better, stop the cross coming in at all”.

“That said”, he continued “we showed real character to come back but as soon as Liam [Christie] got our first goal we finally got to grips with the game and there was no looking back. I think that once Bandits scored their second goal, they ceased to be an attacking force. That says everything about the attitude of my players and the way they controlled the game”.

Sam Ferretto tied the game with a typical poachers strike after the ball rebounded from the crossbar in the thirty-fifth minute and Richard Gabriel fired Brook Street into the lead just two minutes later.

Further goals from Lewis Espley, Adam Humphrey and Phil Mullally in the second half rounded of a memorable fightback and ensured that it would be Brook Street Athletic who entered the lunchtime draw for the Fifth Round.

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

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”.
