Martin leaves Nottingham smarting

Newark Flowserve Reserves 9

Nottingham Community 0

NEWARK FLOWSERVE RESERVES bounced back from their defeat at Clifton All Whites Development with a commanding performance and a superb individual display from four-goal Tyler Martin.

Martin was the star of the show, and his haul included one of the best volleys I have ever seen in my time in football. His 30-yard strike into the top corner left me in mind of Wayne Rooney v Newcastle or Tony Yeboah versus Wimbledon.

The goal was the second of his first half brace and Ed Munton popped up with his customary contribution as Flowserve led  3-0 at the interval.

The message from the managers at half-time was not to let up in the second half, and that was carried out to the letter as The Highwaymen plundered six more in the second period.

Martin added two more to take his total to 17 in 19 games, while substitutes Leighton Nicholson and Ryan Ashley announced their arrivals in style as they made it 7-0.

Ryan Pilborough produced a delightful lob after running on to a neat Munton through ball, and Joe Craven popped up in the box to head home an Ashley corner to complete the final tally.

It was a just reward for a team that showed the right attitude against poor opposition and never took their foot off the gas.

Newark Flowserve Reserves: 1 Lewis Cawthorne; 2 Joe Craven; 3 Tom Perkins; 4 Alex Hales; 5 Alex Bosworth (captain and author); 6 Will Nelson; 7 Ed Munton; 8 Liam Knott; 9 Tyler Martin; 10 Ryan Pilborough; 11 Joe Bilton.
