Evesham crash to an away day rout
8:20am Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
EVESHAM United crashed 6-0 at Wimborne Town in Calor Southern League Division One South and West.
The Evesham defence was finally breached on 30 minutes when Mark Gamble cut in from the left and beat keeper John Bateman with a low drive at his near post.
The lead was doubled five minutes later when Bateman was ruled to have brought down Gamble in the box and Micky Hubbard tucked away the spot-kick.
Early in the second-half, Gamble squared for James Stokoe to score and, five minutes in, Gamble rounded Bateman after racing clear to slot in number four.
He completed his hat-trick on the hour, heading home George Webb’s cross, and substitute Matt Kemble compounded United’s miserable afternoon with a sixth goal 12 minutes from time.
Evesham: Bateman, Williams, Wilson, Richards, Sysum, Batfield, Brown (Holloway 45), Barnfield, Palmer, Dovey, Jackson.
Subs not used: Rodrigues, Gould, Millard, McGee. Attendance: 223.
