On: Wednesday, 04 Mar 2020
Venue: at Home

Result: Won 4 - 0

Goal Scorers: Own Goal 1, Henry Waghorn 1, Oliver Bradley 1, Andrew Babcock 1

Man of the Match: Henry Waghorn

Honourable mentions: Henry Kayll and Carlos Bakker-Noguer for calm and solid defensive displays alongside Henry Waghorn.

The first half of this match made for interesting viewing with a contrast in styles on display - the physically superior and sharper into the tackle Reading boys vs the composed passing of the more light-weight Blue Coat XI. Some brave last ditch defending form the visitors kept the scores level until a testing cross from Alex Wormald was turned into his own net by an unfortunate Reading defender.

The second half saw Blue Coat assert their authority and the match was killed off by a headed goal from Man of the Match Henry Waghorn, a cool Oliver Bradley slot-home following a pacey break, and a superb tight angled finish from the dangerous Andrew Babcock. The 4-0 scoreline would suggest this match was more comfortable than it was, with some solid defending needed throughout. Another win, and another clean sheet.
