Pool poo on poor Tree
Frankie Faeces  Friday, August 30, 2002  11:03 GMT

On Thursday evening Yew Tree travelled the short distance to face Pool Reserves in their second league match of the season. Yew Tree had a very unfamiliar look about them and gave debuts to keeper Frank Sandal, centre half Matthew Fahy and midfielder Dave Dangereux. Play was equally balanced for the first fifteen minutes and the deadlock was broken on 20 minutes when woeful defending let in the Pool strikers for three quick fire strikes, which effectively finished the game before half time. Yew Tree’s midfield of Simon Malpass, Oliver Sutcliffe, Steve Rawlings and man-of-the-match Scott Richmond were working overtime to deal with the pacy Pool youngsters but Richmond took matters into his own hands when shortly after the break he danced through a static Pool rearguard and unleashed a ferocious shot from well outside the area. Pool replied almost immediately when the lanky Pool centre forward rose well to head home and then the game was thrown into controversy when Pool were rightly awarded a penalty for handball, but the referee saw it right to show Stuart Thompson a red card when he was clearly protecting his face after a powerful shot by Graham Evans. Evans despatched the penalty himself. With 20 minutes remaining Yew Tree stepped up a gear, albeit with a one-man disadvantage, and were rewarded when Oliver Sutcliffe stabbed the ball home and the minutes later ex-Yew Tree veteran Nigel Smithson handled in the area after good approach play from Alan Wrigglesworth. Adam Wilson stepped up and made no mistake with the spot kick against his former club. With five minutes remaining and the score at 5-3 Yew Tree matched their more illustrious neighbours stride for stride, but gifted them a goal when Steve Rawlings unfortunately headed past his own keeper when trying to clear danger. With a makeshift team Yew Tree can be pleased with their performance, but the real challenge will appear on Saturday with the visit of Harold Styans Reserves. With one more week remaining before the return of regulars Richard Danskin, John Wilby, Paul Thompson, Tony Kirk, Tom Armitage and Robbie Field, the future does look more promising, but nobody would deny Pool Reserves this victory.
