The Reds enjoyed what turned out to be a surprisingly comfortable win against a London Hospital O.B. side who gave us two tough games last season. However after travelling across London they could only field 10 men this time. Parkfield started the game very brightly and on the perfect playing surface, took the game to LHOB creating numerous chances in the first half. A combination of weak finishing and a more than competent LHOB keeper meant PFC scored only 2 goals from the huge number of goal attempts created.
The alert Sima scored a classic ‘poachers’ goal on his debut, tapping in from a keepers spill following yet another shot on LHOB goal. A second goal from a well placed low shot by Nathan put the Reds in control. Parkfield went in 2-0 up at the break.
LHOB deserved their halftime rest but probably wished it was the final whistle after their resolute defending in the first half which had clearly taken its toll as the second 45 began. The Reds went about their task with vigour right from the whistle and the visibly tiring LHOB outfit didn’t know what hit them as a quick succession of goals at the beginning of the half put the game beyond them. PFC enjoyed total dominance with LHOB rarely breaching Reds solid back four. Goals came thick and fast with Osamma claiming a hat-trick and Nathan notching again. Miro capped a great second half performance with 2 fine goals. Latecomer Lamar also netted, whilst Darren Carter and Ollie Kemp chipped in with a goal apiece, Darrens being a 25 yard free-kick into the top corner of the goal catching out the demoralised and sleeping Goalie. The class and determination of the London Hospital lads showed, as when offered an early finish and beers by PFC, they refused and chose to see out the 90 minutes knowing that more goals would likely be conceded. They were eventually put out of their misery by the very experienced ref Tony Anderson. The London Hospital lads were rewarded for their stoicism with 2 rounds of beers which set them on their way for their planned pub crawl back in East London. Make no mistake, Parkfield will have tougher games coming up but enjoyed what was a fruitful afternoons work. PFC 11-0 LHOB. Scorers; Osamma 3, Nathan 2, Miro 2, Lamar 1, Darren 1, Ollie 1, Sima 1.
