Bourne Town Reserves went to Desborough Reserves in great form hoping to continue their good start to the season and came home with a thumping 10-2 victory.

The Wakes started superbly well, going 1-0 up inside the first five minutes through goal machine Jake Mason. With such a poor start, Desborough showed their inexperience by allowing Mason through for his second in as many minutes.

Solid midfielder Tom Panton dominated the centre of park with sidekick Aris Placis allowing Mason and Harley Williams to test the home keeper.

After 20 minutes Desborough attacked down the left side, crossing a rare ball. With the cross going straight out, the Wakes were as shocked as the home side to have a penalty awarded against them which keeper Reece Evans got a big left hand to but couldn’t quite keep out.

Wakes winger George Holliday was then brought down in the box, allowing Williams a chance to get on the scoresheet.

With half time looming, the move of the day was executed superbly well. Starting from Evans, the Wakes keeper threw out to Lewis Hall who combined with Panton and the returning Andy Moss passing through the Desborough midfield. Great movement off the ball allowed Moss to drill the ball across the area. Unselfishly Placis stepped over the ball leaving it to Panton who passed to Williams who passed it back across the six yard box for Mason’s hat trick.

After the break the Wakes dominated the game. Introducing Kieran Rogers for Williams who picked up a knock and was replaced just to be cautious. Rogers didn’t waste time running onto a Moss through ball immediately tucking it away.

More great passing through the midfield set up Mason for his fourth.

Rogers’ pace was a massive threat, scoring his second solo goal finding the top corner. A cracking corner from Holliday put skipper Mountain on the scoresheet after a great volley back from Rogers.

A rare Desborough attack allowed a second consolation goal but the day belonged to Jake Mason who again finished another great team goal (his fifth) and the Wakes’ tenth of this one-sided encounter.

The Wakes have a massive week ahead away at Huntingdon on Wednesday and a great run of five home fixtures to hopefully establish a firm position on the reserve UCL table.
