It wasn't quite as one sided as the score might suggest, as the Stringers more than held their own in the first half, but only tired limbs in the final 20 allowed the Anvils to 'sate their fill'.
Doubles from Mike Spence, Sam Cane and Oli Leslie plus a Lee Thomas single, helped to boost the Anvil goal scoring home record to ( clickerty click ) 66, the highest in the league, also bringing total league goals scored to 93, bettered only by the 'big two', all we need now is a 'iron curtain' the other end, re the outstanding 7 for the maiden century, perhaps Hassocks next week could oblige!
Final stat ( don't we just luv 'em ) the three games we have had with the Stringers have produced a total of 25 goals ( 17 / 8 ) in the Anvils favour, starting first with that memorable 7 - 5 Cup game way back in August, just think all these goals for just a fiver a match, eat your heart out Man U!
Yet another final note, to the Stringers Manager who i know always reads these notes, may i say 'hope you have a more productive 2017 / 18 season'.
