Friendly vs DC Steamers - Result: Won 10-0

Bracknell Manics 1st team were back to full strength this weekend, and with a few new players in the mix. Their opposition; DC Steamers, well established in the Reading Sunday League, and last seasons victors over Bracknell Manics FC in the Berks & Bucks Cup.

From the start Manics were looking sharp, early preparation meant the Manics were focused and hungry to take the lead. It came after only 11 minutes of play, Paul Milner scoring wiith his head from a Glenn Evans corner.

A minute later and Milner scored his second. This time a defensive error and Milner intepted a bad pass and volley the ball into the net.

Ryan Warman was beginning to impress when he went on a dazzling run, before shooting over the bar. Then on the 25th minute Joel Curran scored a wonder goal collecting the ball 25 yards out and striking it against the upright and into the back of the net to make it 3-0.

Manics scored two more before the break, David Fenton from a short corner and Gary Sarney after a dubious offside decision by the referee.

DC carried on battling though and had a series of near chances in the first half, but the Manics back four stayed strong cutting out numerous through balls, and then playing the ball from the back.

DC came out fighting in the second, a good chance early on was saved and then cleared by the Manics. But it would be Bracknell Manics who would keep up the momentum, and went onto score more goals.

Gareth Jones scored from a Milner cross and Sarney capitalised on a poor clearance to hit his second of the day home.

A fine solo effort form Warman followed on the 70th minute, collecting the ball in the Manics half, Warman dribbled through the yellow shirts before tucking it sweetly past the keeper to make it eight.

Manics made a few changes, Lee Blackman, Alan Matthias and David Comper came on, with 20 minutes left Milner got his hatrick off another Evans ball, and finally Matthias grabbed a late goal to make it 10-0 to the Manics.

Scorers: Milner (3) Sarney (2) Curran (1) Fenton (1) Jones (1) Warman (1) Matthias (1).
