Docklands win battle of the heath

Docklands U13’s got back to winning ways after defeating a dogged Blackheath side in a pulsating local derby. Josh Hyam gave the Southwark side the lead early on with a well placed shot after latching on to a through ball from Daniel Diangana.

Shorty after Blackheath scored when a long ball over the top was meet by an advancing forward who finished well. Docklands struggled to recover from this and minutes later Blackheath scored again after some persistent work.

Diangana’s low drive drew the visitors level before John Hayley put his side in front with a great finish at the back post following some great link up play with Hyam. The impressive Hayley set up Diangana for Docklands fourth before Charlie MacDonald also went close with a volley from fifteen yards.

Blackheath slowly got back into the game and claimed a third. The brilliant Michael McShane then pulled off three fabulous saves to deny the home side a equaliser before Liam Costa’s excellent chip was ruled offside.

The game was killed off when some great counter attacking play saw Teddy Belcher find Hyam who played and a one two with Costa on the left.

The ball was then fed to Teddy White whose close range shot sealed the deal for Docklands. Docklands assistant manager Tommy McCloud said: “I thought we passed the ball well for periods and played some good stuff. “With the new signings the gaffer has got in there are competition for places which is showing.”
