Ketton produced their best performance of the season so far against a King’s Cliffe side they beat 1 – 0 a month ago to run out 9 – 0 winners on Saturday.

Ketton started the PDFL Division One tie very brightly, Alex Collyer finished with aplomb side footing a curling volley from the edge of the box past the keeper following great work from Alex Sismore after only three minutes.

Collyer doubled the lead with a clever header 10 minutes later. Sismore was brought down in the box after 20 minutes and Matthew Woodman coolly sent the keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot.

Sismore was then replaced by young Lewis Morley after 30 minutes but it was one way traffic and Will Bird made it 4-0 before half time with a bullet header from 10 yards.

The second half carried on in the same fashion with Ketton having a goal disallowed and missing numerous chances. The impressive Morley produced trick after trick before dinking the keeper only to see his shot come back off the bar.

He grabbed his first goal for the senior side this season shortly after to make it 5-0. Bird then scored his second with an exquisite lob before Collyer grabbed his hat-trick with a close range finish.

Morley then added his second and Ketton’s eighth before he was brought down for another penalty which Woodman buried confidently.

Manager Darren Edey said: “That result could have come numerous times this season but we usually take our foot off the gas. I felt sorry for King’s Cliffe as they had some great young players but we just didn’t give them any time to settle, and it was a pretty relentless attacking display.”

“It was hard to pick a man of the match as everyone did so well. Coz was back to his best and took all his goals well, Sis was great before he went off injured and Lewis Morley is a great talent,”

“He scored two and set up three, I love his arrogance when he plays and he definitely has a big future in the game.”
