Salisbury's sink their new Conference teeth into Cherries

Salisbury FC 4 v 0 AFCB Development Squad
31 July 2013
Attendance 400

The match against Salisbury FC was dubbed a chance for some triallists to go under the microscope, while some of our top development players like Matthews, Chiedozie and Wakefield would get more match experience. Picking Jalal in goal you would hope would give the team a bit of confidence, but with Warrne Feeney lining up against the Cherries as well as hot shot Ben Wright, the Cherries were in for a torrid evening at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium.
Here are the main Official AFCB tweets: 
After 10 minutes, only a fine finger tip save stops Sam Matthews opening the scoring from the edge of the area. Bright start for the Cherries! Then Baily Cargill brought down his man two minutes later in the box. Ben Wright scored from the spot to make it 1:0 to the Whites!
Trialist Elliott Legg replaced Baily Cargill on 19 minutes. Ben appeared to have injured himself conceding the penalty. Things were only getting worse as well for AFCB as on 24 minutes another penalty was awarded to Salisbury. Triallist Michael Parry committed the foul. And yes, GOAL to Salisbury 2-0 up on the Cherries. Shwan Jalal got a hand to Ben Wright's penalty but couldn't stop him scoring his second of the evening. Jalal will save a penalty one day I expect.
Little happened of not then until 36 minutes when Elliott Legg chipped over from 20 yards. Josh Wakefield also tried his luck, with 42 minutes gone, from the edge of the area but his shot also went over.                
Half-time: Salisbury 2-0 Cherries. The hosts are in front through two Ben Wright penalties.

On 46 minutes Jacob Cleaver and Emir Kujovic came on for Brandon Goodship and Jordan Chiedozie for the second half. And within seconds it was Salisbury 3-0 Cherries. Ben Wright converted from close range to complete his hat-trick. AFCB are learning all about Mr Wright this evening, no relation to Ian I suppose.

Before the hour mark it was 4-0 to Salisbury and Ben Wright was again the one who tapped it in.       
AFCB then made some subs on 60 minutes with Aristide Bassele and Mark Molesley are on for Josh Wakefield and Harry Cornick were taken off. Chad Collins and George Colson then came on after 66 minutes for Shwan Jalal and Sam Matthews, in a double substitution.
Finally, on 82 minutes Jack Simpson went on for Michael Kamara for the final few minutes.

The final score was 4:0 to Salisbury. Salisbury were clearly revved up for this one with their Conference campaign about to begin, but there will be much to think about for Hargreaves and Purches after this one. I hope they have learnt a lot.
Cherries XI: Jalal, McCarthy, Cargill, Parry, Kamara, Losasso, Matthews, Wakefield, Cornick, Chiedozie, Goodship      

Substitutes: Collins, Legg, Bassele, Molesley, Cleaver, Colson, Kujovic, Simpson
