Jack’s reserves simply demolished opposition

Finally Jacks House Seconds produced the performance they knew they were capable of, which resulted in the 13-1 demolition of Castleton at Walsden Rec on Saturday.

The game started with chances at both ends, but Jacks got the breakthrough when Jamie Bull finished coolly for his first of a hat trick.

Thomas Barnes then doubled Jacks’ lead with a great chip over the keeper from the edge of the box.

It was his first of four goals and a great performance from the young striker, who now seems to be finding the back of the net more regularly.

Nathan Rooks made it three with a great turn and shot on the edge of the box, giving the Castleton keeper no chance.

Jacks got another two in the first half making it 5 - 0 at half time, however it could have easily have been 5-3 except for Jacks keeper, who was in great form including a penalty save in each half.

Castleton tried to get back into the game after the break but when Jacks scored another two goals in quick succession a really high score was on the cards.

With great attacking play all over the pitch Jacks scored eight goals in the second half. Max Gale got his reward for his work rate throughout the game with two goals.

Nathan Ashman also capped a brilliant performance with two goals and Joey McClernon got one and was unlucky not to get another when a fierce shot came back off the bar.

Fantastic work rate and commitment was shown by Mark Smith despite not getting on the scoresheet and all the Jacks players turned in a great performance.
