Impressive team display earns away side comprehensive victory over South Ilford Catholics

JK Silvertown remain second in the Essex Sunday Combination League Division Two table after thrashing South Ilford Catholics 6-0 last weekend.

With snow falling, JK made light work of the hosts, although they were left disappointed come the full-time whistle after wasting a number of good opportunities.

The goals were shared around by the visitors after Ben Short, their player-manager, opened the scoring after 20 minutes.

But despite creating several chances, it remained 1-0 at half time with Silvertown keen to be more clinical after the break.

Chris Wright soon ensured that would be the case by doubling the advantage straight after the restart.

Ben Jenkins then made it 3-0 from the penalty spot 10 minutes later, before man of the match Danny Lock netted.

Gavin Ashby made it five with a fine curling effort from 30 yards, before a South Ilford defender sliced into his own net to conclude the scoring.

It was a comprehensive victory for JK and they host rivals Old Wymondonians in the J. Lizzimore Cup this weekend.

JK Silvertown: Muscat, Lock, Ashby, Jenkins, Hassan, R.Wright, Aboucharka, Leahy, Stevens, Short, C.Wright.

Substitutes: Robson, Boreham, Loureiro, Batterbee, Rawlinson, Ferreria.
