Jimmy Ping Right On Cue With A 30-Yarder

The Manics Res team continued their unbeaten season to 5 games, winning their fourth game in a row! Manics started brightly and after 5 minutes James Blackman twatted an effort from all of 35 yards from left-back with the keeper having no chance, surely another nominee for goal of the season.

Ten minutes later is was 2-0, Lee Blackman continued to roast the Oak's left-back and crossed for Joel Curran to head from 6 yards at the near post.

Again ten minutes later it was 3-0. Lee Blackman ending up on a long-ball in the box and cooly slotting past the hapless keeper.

After Manics got their third, missed chances began to happen with Chris Wilson through on goal but saved and Curran blazing over the bar after good work by Tony Hemley and hitting the post soon after. Royal Oak captitalised and scored through their pacy striker.

After half-time, it was again frustration for the Manics forwards and Harry Clowse. First Curran recieved a ball into the box and shooting from an acute angel only to see it hit the far post and roll back across the line to hit the other post with Wilson failing to poke it in.

Minutes later Clowse struck the ball well with the keeper pushing it onto the bar and post and then saving the follow up from Curran. Changes were made with Paul Miller coming on for Luke Phillips and Ben Westwood on for John Hayward.

The game turned scrappy after a while and drama was to happen in the last ten minutes. After Simon Blay came on for Clowse The Manics were to be reduced to ten men after goalkeeper and captain Chris Adams was shown the red card for handling outside the area and stopping a goalscoring opportunity.

Lee Blackman took the gloves, but the resulting free-kick was wasted and Manics easily held out for the remaining minutes.

Manics were glad to get 3 points, but disappointed with only scoring 3 and the sending off of captain Chris Adams..

Scorers: J. Blackman (1) Curran (1) L.Blackman (1).
Assists: L.Blackman (1) Hayward (1).

The Manics Man of the Match went to Chris Adams, and the Referee's Player of the Match went to Brian Judge.

Thanks to the fans who came to watch!
