St Christopher's Under-13 0 Greneway 7
GRENEWAY'S Year 8 football team are hoping to be the first side to win back-to-back North Herts Cups - and if their opening game display is anything to go by it could be their year once more.
The team was back in action with an emphatic 7-0 victory over St Christopher's of Letchworth.
And with a new Champions League system in place, Terry Graves' team were hoping for some early points.
Greneway took the lead after a neat through ball from Mitchell Wooding found Kieran Willis-Wright, who slotted past the advancing goalkeeper.
Greneway made it 2-0 when an Ellis King corner found the head of Matt Brennan. And when his effort was pushed away Ashley Chapman reacted quickest to poke the ball home.
Willis-Wright grabbed another when he pounced on a loose ball inside the box.
Then he turned provider when his cross was met first time by Jacob Leighton.
At the back, captain Liam Purkiss, Harry Stafford, and Michael Vieira-Roodenburg gave a fine display.
Substitute Jordan Hall's neat goal made it 5-0. Ryan Bowels then added another, with a powerful drive.
Greneway completed the rout, when Hall slid a fine pass into the path of Willis-Wright who completed his hat-trick.
Greneway: Long; Vieira-Roodenburg, Purkiss, Chapman; Stafford, Wooding, King, Brennan, Bowels; Leighton, Willis-Wright; (Subs): McClean, Silverousa, Hall, Middlemass.
