Stones thrash Cray Wanderers
4:13pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
Wealdstone extended their unbeaten start to the season after thrashing Cray Wanderers 7-1 in the Ryman Premier Division.
Gordon Bartlett’s side were in ruthless form as they crushed their opponents for their fourth consecutive win to move up to third in the table.
Seven different players found the net for the Stones which bodes well for the rest of the season as Wealdstone look to mount a promotion challenge.
The hosts opened the scoring after 12 minutes when Chris Moore was clattered in the area and Sean Cronin blasted home the penalty.
Wealdstone made it 2-0 on the half hour mark when Moore got his head on a cross shot from James Hammond.
Glen Little was brought down in the box and the assistant flagged for a foul to award them a second penalty. Scott McGleish’s effort was saved by goalkeeper Andy Walker but the former Wycombe Wanderers striker followed up to net the rebound.
The visitors hit back and got on the scoresheet with an effort from James Frey.
Wealdstone netted their fourth goal just before half-time when Elliott Godfrey struck a superb strike into the net against the bottom side.
Substitute Reece Grant had only been on the pitch for 90 seconds when he netted their fifth goal following a goalmouth scramble.
There was six minutes of injury time and Wealdstone managed to score two more goals to seal the comprehensive win.
Stefan Bailey scored before substitute Jack Hutchinson netted his first goal for the club.
The visitors ended the match with ten men when Danny Young received a second yellow card for a foul on Grant.
Bartlett’s side travel to Bury Town this weekend before visiting AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday.
