AFCW 4 Long Eaton United 1

It was a perfect afternoon for Kyle Brady and AFC Wulfrunians, as the striker notched all four goals in his side’s convincing 4-1 victory over Long Eaton United. After falling behind, Wulfs responded brilliantly and looked in control throughout the match.


The visitors took the lead after just three minutes, courtesy of a controversial penalty decision. A poorly cleared corner was bouncing around in the area and appeared to strike Chris Waterhouse on the arm, with the referee judging that this was deliberate.


Skipper Paolo Piliero then made no mistake in converting from the spot, as he powerfully smashed his penalty low to Danny Tipton’s left.


It took Wulfs just 15 minutes to respond, as Brady added his first of the afternoon. A long ball from Jake Sedgemore was dealt with poorly by Jordan Leeming; the striker got to the ball before the ‘keeper and fired into the empty net.


Some good work from Jamie King saw the home side take the lead as he took on two players before threading a great ball through for Brady, who hit an excellently-placed finish into the bottom corner.


Brady completed his hat trick just before the break, as he gave his side a two-goal cushion at the break. Sedgemore delivered a perfect near-post corner and Brady leapt to flick it into the top corner.


An excellent spell of control resulted in Wulfs grabbing a fourth and final goal in the second half. Sedgemore was again heavily involved, as his pinpoint pass was collected by Ben Jevons, and his cross was met by an excellent first-time finish by Brady to round off the win.


Substitute Kyle Minto almost stretched Wulfs’ lead even further late on as Sedgemore put him one-on-one with the ‘keeper, but a loose touch meant that he fired over.


Next weekend sees Wulfrunians take a break from league action, as they continue their quest for F.A. Vase glory by taking the trip to Quorn for a second round tie.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Tipton, Sedgemore, Perks, Rose-Laing (Ganderton 83), Waterhouse, Hunt, Gregg, Palmer (Bridgen 71), Brady (Minto 63), King, Jevons.
