MARJON 2-0 BATH UNIVERSITY

IT was all about ‘Bop Bop’ football for Marjon in their latest victory over physically powerful visitors from Bath University.

After a slow start, Marjon found their rhythm and were knocking the ball around with terrific tempo and purpose. Off the ball, it was all about pressing the ball and the intense approach paid dividend with an opening goal.

Lewis Irwin was the man to win a penalty after he was bundled over in the box and Liam Prynn calmly slotting home. This opened the door to a barrage of chances, with Pete Ireland, Kyle Marks and Irwin all going close.

Manager Gary Jeffery emphasised the need for concentration after the break and defensive stability provided the platform for Callum Thompson to rifle a decisive second goal into the roof of the net.

The strong back-four unit of Phil Payne, Ryan Tetley, George Birkbeck and Olly Woodland held firm until the end, as Jeffery commended his team. “The attitude was first class, a real team effort and togetherness,” he said.
