Scrappy game at time with some nice bits of play in between,

Plenty of goals and 3 more points so a good night for us,

Very good goal from Benson and a good game from Clifton,

The ref was useless but we are used to that .

Only 3,500 of us and 33 of them at the game which was a tad disappointing,

Roll on Saturday when there will be a few hundred in the away end and a good few more of us,

There will be plenty of goals again because we always look like scoring and we always look if we will concede,

A bit better than the pre Ollie days where 1 goal was going to win the game.

When did we last score 4 goals in a game? Seems like ages ago. Just need to sharpen up the defence a little. Good times ahead - enjoying every minute of it!

Defence at fault for the first, newport were newport, conning the weak ref. Played some good stuff, thought Hewitt Clifton Waterfall had good games. Max and Matt Green look low on confidence and id like to see greeny get a goal to help him but we lose so so much when hanson is not on the pitch, he is such an asset. tilley my MOM looked really good as the game went on

Newport are bunch of cynical diving sheepshagging tossers, Stocksbridge is an ‘all about me’ ref, and, in other news, we are now an entertaining, albeit work in progress, team with some pretty talented footballers. Decent performances from Vernam, Clifton and Tilley but Benson just has so much quality so MoM for me. Clarke class in his cameo and great energy from Max.

Thoroughly enjoyable game in which Newprt played their part, but we had just a bit more than them on the night, althouh i feared at one stage it would end up 3-3.

It's no mean feat putting four past them with their defensive record this season, but at times we carved them open, with Benson and particularly Tilley having excellent games in midfield. We still have a tendency to fall asleep at the back and gift easy goals, but when we can score four at the other end, it all adds up to much more entertaining games than we have seen for some time. Think Olly was trying a few things tonight, so he can get closer to knowing who will make the cut at the end of the season.

The ref was a preening prat and made the game about him too much for my liking but you can't complain at 6 goals on a bitterly cold night to keep you warm. We look so much more capable going forward and were getting behind and turning their defenders much morethan we have for many a moon. Tighten up at the back and we could be going places.

MOM Tilley.

Thoroughly enjoyed that, apart from a 15 minute spell in the second half, we controlled the game. Changed shape in the second half to 433 and it worked. Superb effort by everyone and what a free kick from Benson, good all round performance.
The referee was dire. It was b***** cold but well worth it.

Aye aye! Sounds a bit like the 'Archie Gemmill World Cup goal' scene from Trainspotting to me.  


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
