Project 21: Frodsham U18s 0 v 7 Macclesfield Town U18s

16 September 2018

Defender Tom Kerr celebrated his birthday in emphatic style this afternoon as Jim Hall's side hit seven past Frodsham.

The visitors started the game in the ascendancy and stamped their authority on the contest from the first whistle.

Ten minutes in, some tenacious play from Neeki Arkian set Sam Jordan through on goal, yet the exciting striker saw his fifteen yard effort fly just wide of the near post.

Jake Hall, Max Phillips and Akim Samms all had chances to break the deadlock as the siege continued, with the Silkmen youngsters playing some creative, intricate football which the hosts struggled to find an answer to.

Our reward came on 22 minutes when Madiera's tantalising cross could only be parried by the Frodsham 'keeper and there was Hussein Mohammed to fire home from close range.

Five minutes later our advantage was doubled when Madiera once again produced a pinpoint cross and Jordan majestically fired the ball into the far corner of the net.

Six minutes later Jordan could well have claimed his second as he fizzed a twenty-five yard drive agonisingly wide of the near post, yet there was little doubt that Hall's side had plenty more goals in them - as the second half would ultimately prove.

Five minutes after the re-start Hussein saw his powerful drive from the edge of the area fly fractionally over the bar, yet less than sixty seconds later Samms pristinely turned on the eighteen yard line before slamming the ball home.

The lead was extended once again just after the hour mark, as some magical play from Mohammed Duran on the right had side saw him cross the ball into the box and there was Samms to acrobatically volley the ball across the face of goal and into the far corner.

Less than sixty seconds later, Macc struck again as Hussein struck once more - this time with a confident finish from ten yards out.

Frodsham did keep plugging away to their credit, but with the game effectively over as a contest Macc pushed forward looking for more goals.

Only a string of saves from the Frodsham 'keeper kept the score down, yet he was unable to prevent Hussein adding a sixth from the penalty spot on the stroke of full-time as he claimed a debut hat-trick

The rout culminated with a blistering Silkmen move deep into injury time, which saw Hussein walk the ball into the net and complete another devastating performance.

Manager Jim Hall, together with Akim Samms and Mohammed Hussein spoke to Silkmen TV after the game -
