Redbridge return from Manchester victorious in cup tie up north

Danny Berg claimed Redbridge’s third from the spot

A depleted Redbridge team returned back from Manchester with a comfortable cup victory under their belt.

Up against it with half the team either injured or unavailable, Redbridge pulled all their resources and played half of the boys who are away at University, who showed tremendous commitment for the cause by turning up in Manchester for a cup tie.

Adie Kaye, Tony Gellman and Greg Louca had promised they’d show up, and they didn’t let their manager down, on a pitch, which was boggy but playable. An even first 25 minutes with very little to choose was changed when Ryan Cole sent in one of his trademark deliveries which saw a towering header from Jordan Sapler from 15 yards out into the back of the net.

There was little to choose between the sides at half-time, but with the break came a few tweaks and with the knowledge of roll on/roll off, a chance to take a few risks. Top scorer Daniel Garfinkle was taken off and Scott Oldstein moved up front. This played instant dividends with Cole again delivering an assist with a tremendous through ball that saw Oldstein advance and slot the ball home for a 2-0 lead. Redbridge now relaxed and dominated proceedings with Kemp in the Redbridge goal having precious little to do and the imperious Niman and Sampler dominant at the back.

Danny Berg was rolling back the years and even got involved in a bit of argy bargy but kept his composure and smiled – so much for Southern softies as Sapler gave the thousand yard stare at the Manchester forward who looked at Jordan and ran the other way .

The coup de grace came from a superb run by Oldstein that saw the keeper upend him and a penalty awarded. With Ben Sollosi off the pitch after a driving performance, up stepped Danny Berg for a superb pen and the final nail in the coffin.

Manager Jon Jacbos said: “It was a very professional performance and a testament to the strength in depth with Redbridge. The bagels tasted so much better with the victory though I must thank the aforementioned Gellman, Kaye and Louca for their hospitality and for ensuing the game got played.”
