Having recently playing poorly but winning against the bottom placed team, this Sunday saw Saints take on the 2nd bottom team Wistaston.

Played at The Barony in Nantwich, the game was an entertaining one to watch and was preceded by an impeccably observed Remembrance Day minute's silence.

Saints played neat, controlled football and worked hard to create openings. Simple, short passes to retain possession was the order of the day and when the thrusts forward came, they were usually effective.

Wistaston battled hard but good finishing and unselfish play in front of goal by Saints was reflected in the half time score of 5-0 to Saints.

PleasingThe second half saw more of the same and particularly pleasing was the way that very few passes were wasted. Defenders calmly started moves from the back and the front men were not afraid to pass the ball back if no real chance was there.

Excellent, mature play and something the boys had worked hard on in practice. The crowning moment of an excellent team effort was a move in which EVERY outfield player touched the ball, working it from the right back position, across the midfield, to left wing and then back in to the centre for a simple tap in goal.

Fabulous stuff. Final score: Saints 9 Wistaston 0.

The Saints are now unbeaten in 8 games and are topping the league. However, the next two weeks will be a thorough test with 3rd placed Nantwich but first 2nd placed ASC Juniors providing the opposition.

Next week's game is a 9.30am kick off at the soccer centre.
