Stones 5 Blues 0

Categories: Uncategorized

The pain continued for Blues as they went down 5-0 at Wealdstone, on Easter Monday.

It took only 45 seconds for the hosts to take the lead, and their final goal was the 100th Blues have conceded in Vanarama South this season.

With two games remaining it’s already too late to prevent the worst season in Blues’ history since joining the Isthmian League in 1971,

With suspensions starting to kick in there were several changes to the team which lost 2-0 against Gosport on Good Friday, with Richard Walton returning in goal and fellow keepers Harry Voss and Ashley Harris named on the bench. Academy prospect Alex Rogers became the 69th player to pull on a Stortford shirt in a competitive game this season.

Blues couldn’t have made a worst start as Edward Oshodi fired past Walton, and by the fifth minute it was 2-0 as Fitchett latched on to Wright’s mis-hit shot and tucked the ball home from eight yards.

It wasn’t until the 55th minute that the hosts wrapped up the win as Wright side-footed a shot from 20 yards and it crept in at the far post.

Sam Ford went close to scoring Blues’ first league goal since early March but it was Wealdstone who improved their goal difference as Green hit a spectacular effort on 88 minutes before Oshodi crossed for an unmarked Elliott Benyon to head home from five yards.
