Brockworth Albion 4 Cam Bulldogs 0
BROCKWORTH Albion got their Gloucestershire Northern Senior League campaign off to a flying start with a 4-0 thumping of Cam Bulldogs.
Player-manager Chris Burns got the ball rolling with his first goal back at the club and a superb second half show saw the Badgers take control.
Cam started the brighter of the two teams but failed to fashion any clear cut chances and Albion began to fins their feet.
They took the lead five minutes before the break when former Portsmouth and Northampton Town midfielder Burns headed home Mark Temple’s free-kick.
Former Gloucester City boss Burns then gave his side a few harsh words before Craig Fairley added the second goal, just seconds before he was set to be substituted.
Picking up the ball around 25 yards out, Fariley blasted the ball into the top corner of the net to prompt a change in Burns’ mind.
He added to his total just a few minutes later to make it 3-0 and effectively the game was over as a contest.
Albion continued to press and after great work from Ian Taylor, Temple’s free-kick was headed home by Liam Mayo to seal an emphatic win.
Burns then threw on two 16-year-olds in George Molloy and George Tasney for their first taste of competitive action to round off a thoroughly satisfying afternoon.
“We were poor in the first half but in the seconnd half we really turned it on,” Burns said.
“I was really pleased to get the young lads on as its always my philosophy to help develop youth players.”
