In a much anticipated fixture the Seasiders where keen to avenge last years loss and where met with a sub standard, waterlogged pitch .
The Seasiders where switched on early and within two minutes a great through ball was seized by Ben Polkinghorne and slammed into the corner of goal.
A great start that was to get even better as a well waited ball was found by an unmarked Harry Carroll who calmly scored his first goal for his club, five minutes in and the Seasiders found themselves in a comfortable position but it was Harvey who at times put our defense under enormous pressure .
There constant use of the long ball served its purpose as the ground was just too heavy for a short game.
There constant pressure paid off as Harvey scored through a great strike and ten minutes later a dubious handball awarded them a penalty which was easily converted.
Half time 2-2 .
The second half started much the same as the first, Ben Polkinghorne was the early target up front , his electrifying pace and great finishing lit up the ground as he hammered home a brace to complete his second hat trick in two weeks, our midfield has been solid and where exceptional in the wet conditions, using the ball brilliantly they dominated there opponents and provided numerous opportunities.
After a great build up, a great cross from the right found a soaring Harry Carroll who headed home his second.
Juliano Ferminio ,Gary Mayers, Jack sweatman and Myles Godden all relished the wet and slippery conditions and where instrumental in the second half demolition of Harvey.
Gary Mayers finally found the back of the net and a typical stunning strike by Chris Godden, 30 out, gave their keeper no chance.
At games end a 7-2 victory.
On reflection our back five did some really good things, there ability to remain calm in that first half, to absorb the constant pressure Harvey applied, to repel there forwards and find the likes of Tom light and Luke Evans with time and space set us up for a comfortable win.
The Retravision player of the day was Chris Godden, closely followed by Jon Snape and Tom Light .
