Esh Winning vs Redcar Athletic



Esh Winning 3-6 Redcar Athletic

Esh: George Pinder (43’), Jonathon Swift (55’), Bradley Tyrie (90+4’)

Steelmen: Isaac Walker (5’, 26’, 90’), Matty Tymon (19’), Sonni Coleman (77’), Danny Boyle (90+3’)

Isaac Walker claimed the match ball in a nine-goal thriller, as Redcar Athletic progressed in the Isuzu FA Vase.

The forward pulled the strings in a drastically improved performance, netting twice, and pioneering a third before the break.

Substitute Sonni Coleman added number four, easing the tension amidst a small fight-back from the Stags’, before Walker starred in a late double to book a date with Padiham in the second qualifying round.

Torrential rain and a somewhat slanted playing surface set the scene for the Isuzu FA Vase encounter, which Redcar could ill afford to lose.

Thankfully, any nervousness was alleviated in the opening five minutes, as Daryll Hall flicked Joe Thompson’s long throw into the path of Isaac Walker, whose looping header defied a sprawling Harry Alderson.

Matty Tymon took the credit for goal number two, slotting the ball home after fantastic footwork from Isaac Walker, and an incisive through ball to cap it off.

Anthony Bell was the next to drive at the heart of the Stags’ defence, twisting and turning into the area, where he was brought down at the expense of a spot kick.

To no surprise, Isaac Walker stepped up to take the penalty, making no mistake in dispatching the ball straight down the centre of goal.

Esh Winning eked out a foothold in the tie towards the end of the half, possibly sparked by Harvey Rudd’s fantastic goal-line clearance to deny the lob of Matty Tymon.

George Pinder was the first to test the gloves of Decklan Greenwood, who was forced to react with haste to deny his close-range effort.

The Stags’ forward got the better of the shot-stopper with his second attempt, lofting the ball into the far top corner from out on the right flank to offer a glimmer of hope for the hosts.

Captain Jonathon Swift further reduced the deficit ten minutes after the restart, nodding the ball past Greenwood at the near post to prompt some sense of panic amongst Redcar’s lines.

The Steelmen were playing against the slope in the second period, but gradually improved as the half went on.

Daryll Hall was the first to threaten Alderson’s goal, as his headed effort needed clearing off the line, before Oscar Fletcher’s drive from distance stung the shot-stopper’s fingertips.

A clambering header from Adam Wheatley eventually fashioned an all important insurance goal, as substitute Sonni Coleman was on hand to prod his effort over the line.

Isaac Walker added further security to Redcar’s position on the stroke of the 90, guiding the ball in at the near post to put the perfect finish on his run from deep.

The forward was involved once again in a promising move upfield, playing a tidy pass back into the feet of late introduction Danny Boyle, who made no mistake with the finish for number six.

With the tie all but sealed, Bradley Tyrie gave one last cheer to the home crowd, dancing through Athletic’s relaxed backline, and curling in off the far post to ensure the result proved a little more reflective.

The Steelmen’s first triumph of the season, the result could perhaps spark a bit of confidence amongst Gary Forster’s ranks, whilst sealing a date in the second qualifying round, at home to Padiham.
