Fowlmere 5 Sawston Rovers 1
FOWLMERE head coach Steve Walker praised Saturday's strike partnership as Danny Mizon and Darren Dyer got off to a flier.
He also hailed the return of former Histon midfielder Vinny Spinna, who has become Walker's good luck charm.
"Vinny has missed the last few weeks and it was good to have him back in the side because he always makes a difference when he plays. In fact, we've never lost a game when he's been playing," said Walker.
And after a couple of disappointing results lately, Walker decided to shuffle his pack and brought in reserve team players Nick King and Darren Dyer. And it was Dyer who made an immediate impression with his partnership with fellow striker Danny Mizon.
Walker said: "I thought they played really well together and it was nice to see them both get on the scoresheet. It was the first time they had played alongside each other and it looks promising.
"Mizon has been having a good season for us and Dyer has been in good form for the reserves where he has already scored more than 20 goals. So I think it's a partnership that will give us a lot of goals."
Fowlmere were in front after just five minutes when a Sawston defender turned the ball into his own net after some good pressure from Dyer.
However, the visitors made up for the mistake moments later when they bundled home an equaliser.
But Fowlmere were soon back in front when goal-scoring midfielder Dan Caley rounded two players and slotted home a neat close range strike.
Dyer then made it 3-1 with another calm strike, following some good play from Karyl Darcey. And it was Darcey who grabbed Fowlmere's fourth with a well-taken strike from the edge of the box.
Dyer then combined with Mizon, and the latter completed a fine afternoon with a powerful finish minutes before half time.
On Saturday, Fowlmere take on league leaders Sawstoan United who have won all of their seven league games.
Walker said: "It's going to be a difficult. But we go into the game with a bit of form and nothing to lose.
"The pressure is on them, especially as they are unbeaten. But I love games like this and we want to be the first side to beat them - and with Spinna in the side, who knows?"
Fowlmere: Fulk; Searle, Poole, King; Darcey, Caley, Spinna, Ward, Reynolds; Dyer, Mizon. (Subs): Kenzie, Cooke, Walker.
