Molesey 0 Fleet Town 6

Fleet made their first visit to Molesey since Isthmian League days in search of a victory after Saturday’s defeat. There were a number of changes to the first team with Ellis McLean and Elliot Amadieu starting while Billy Oram dropped to the bench. Stuart Derry also returned after his injury at Corsham.

The first half was not that much to write home about. Fleet dominated possession but played quite direct and were unable to breakthrough the stubborn Molesey defence. Former Fleet midfielder Connor Channon was trying hard to pull the strings for Molesey without to much support. Fleet’s opening goal came in the last minute of the half. James Beauchamp was fouled on the wing and ultimately had to be substituted, with Billy Oram coming on. The resultant free-kick was swung in by Mal Thomas to the near post where the Molesey goalkeeper fumbled the ball into the net. Half-time 0-1

The second half was much more plain sailing for Fleet with them scoring five unanswered goals. The first of these came from a header by Elliot Amadieu after a Fleet corner. Then Mal Thomas scored two quick fire goals to complete his hat-trick, both goals of a similar style with him being played clean through and finishing with aplomb. Fleet made a couple of substitutes with Dan Bone and Yassa Arafat coming on, both subs scored as well. Dan Bone’s goal was a good passing move that he finished well. Yassa’s goal was more of a penalty box scramble but he finished well for his first Fleet Town goal. Full-time 0-6

Fleet’s next game is Saturday 25th September when they are home to Camberley Town in the League
