Redcar Athletic vs Padiham FC



Redcar Athletic 5-2 Padiham

Steelmen: Liam Jarvie (2’), Anthony Bell (12’), Isaac Walker (24’, 55’), Matty Tymon (69’)

Padiham: Joel Brownhill (82’, 87’)

Redcar Athletic reached the first round proper of the Isuzu FA Vase for only the second time in history, as Matty Tymon’s sensational volley headlined a five goal haul.

The forward channeled his inner Robin van Persie to net one of the strikes of the season, compounding the misery of a downtrodden Padiham outfit, who had already shipped four.

Liam Jarvie kickstarted the rout inside 90 seconds, with captain Anthony Bell and Isaac Walker getting amongst the act to see the visitors out of contention come the hour mark.

Storks’ forward Joel Brownhill mustered a late double to dash Redcar’s hopes of a clean sheet, but no late resurgence could put a dampener on a rapturous Green Lane, and a place in Monday’s eagerly-anticipated first round draw.

The Steelmen wasted no time with typical cup cageyness, racking up a comprehensive lead by the half hour mark.

Liam Jarvie was responsible for setting the gears in motion, finding acres of space on the edge of the area, and providing the exquisite curling finish to match.

The left flank offered lots of joy for Isaac Walker, whose teasing delivery towards Liam Jarvie sparked a quick second, as captain Anthony Bell arrived on the scene to open his account for the season.

Jack Norton had to be on his toes to prevent Joel Brownhill from gifting his side an early lifeline, pushing his bullet header over the bar at the expense of a corner.

The shot-stopper was forced into another sprawling stop in the aftermath, as Daniel Morton let fly across the box, and Norton once again proved its equal.

The Storks soon became the source of their own downfall, as a poor back-pass sold Mathew Hamnett short, and Isaac Walker pounced to loft home a simple – but beautiful – curling finish.

Oscar Fletcher could have capped off his own fantastic performance with a sensational solo goal, dancing through a sea of blue on the stroke of half time, only to glance his effort well wide.

Jack Price offered the Steelmen a welcome reprieve in the opening exchanges of the second period, rising to meet an in-swinging corner, and nodding onto the frame of the goal, unmarked.

The Storks were quickly punished for their goalmouth troubles, as Liam Jarvie flashed the ball across the box, and after a short scramble, Isaac Walker turned home his fifth of the competition.

Four to the good, Redcar looked no less hungry than in the opening five minutes, with Liam Jarvie a whisker away from finishing a delightful team move with a drilled effort over the bar.

When the fifth goal finally came, it proved as spectacular as ever, as Matty Tymon’s sensational first time volley from deep turned Layton Watts’ looping switch of play into the far bottom corner, leaving Hamnett caught in no man’s land.

Despite the rout, Isaac Walker will have been disappointed not to collect the match ball, dinking Hamnett on a quick breakaway, only to be denied by a sliding intervention on the goal line.

Possibly spurred on by a near impossible defensive clearance, the Storks’ reared their long neck to show their offensive prowess in the dying embers.

Joel Brownhill was the man behind both of the late consolation goals, nodding home his first from a corner, before firing across goal to the detriment of Jack Norton’s clean sheet.

Still, a five goal deficit proved a mountain too high, and the referee’s whistle signalled only a third Isuzu FA Vase victory for the Steelmen, but a seventh successive game without defeat.
