Debut hat-trick for Rock fires Rugby Borough to big win

Rugby Editorial 4th Oct, 2018   0

RUGBY Borough enjoyed a 4-0 victory over Desford in the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division.

Things started well on Saturday afternoon, with both teams having attempts on goal but neither making their chances count.

A fast action but fruitless first half passed by with only the replacement of an injured Nick Brandish by Adam Shaw as a highlight.

Borough broke the deadlock in the 49th minute as debutant striker Liam Rock blasted home a powerful shot from Connor Tallet’s pass.

Seven minutes later it was 2-0 when Luke Jones curled a free-kick into the box which squeezed under the Desford keeper’s grasp.

Rock scored again at 64 minutes, putting Borough firmly in control.

Rock’s hat-trick came inside stoppage time to secure a resounding win for Borough.

Joint-boss Neil Collett said: “It was an outstanding performance from the first minute to the last.

“New boy Liam Rock’s debut hat-trick was terrific.

“We showed good league form with a young side.

“The attitude and application was first class from all the squad and sets the standard for a tough month ahead.”
