7 UP

  • Josh Webber netted his first hat trick in a 7-1 demolition of Swansea University. Their task was made more difficult on 22 minutes when their keeper was sent off for fouling Liam Griffiths and denying him the chance of a goal.  Lido had a great start when Webber opened the scoring on 6 minutes after the keeper fumbled the ball, Josh was on hand to stroke the ball home. Play was pretty even after this despite the University being down to 10 men but two goals in a minute around the thirty fifth minute settled the result. First Webber was again on hand to increase the lead and seconds later Liam Griffiths netted his first goal of the season. Disappointment for Griffiths though as he was forced to leave the field on 36 minutes with an injury, he was replaced by Owen Williams.  On 41 minutes Ben Keen got in on the act with his first senior goal.
  • Keen made it five with a thirty yard shot on 47 minutes as now the University were looking for damage limitation. On 53 minutes Lido replaced Ben Keen with Brad Flay and Liam McCreesh with the returning (again!) Sacha Walters. Lido seemed to lose their way somewhat after the changes allowing the University to have a decent spell with the ball. On 65 minutes Josh Webber headed in his hat trick goal to much excitement around the ground. The University pulled a goal back on 71 minutes, they were awarded a penalty which Aaron Jones saved but Tom Johnston followed up his spot kick to net the rebound. Travis James, making his full debut at full back and Josh Webber were now replaced by Danny Dima and Luke McDonald. The final goal of the night was scored by Chris Jones who shot from just outside the area and it hit the inside of the post before settling in the back of the net giving the replacement keeper no chance.
