Barnet Sunday Football League Division Three: Roving Reporters Reserves 0 Highgate Albion thirds 3
Highgate Albion thirds closed the gap on Barnet Sunday Football League Division Three leaders Zenit St Whetstone Reserves to four points with a 3-0 victory at Roving Reporters Reserves at the weekend.
John Eager’s team went into the contest on a six-game winning streak and managed to extend it on the road.
Albion’s manager was actually absent because he had to attend a family event, but Jamie King, David Glaude and Gareth Brooks stepped up in his absence to run the side.
The opener at Enfield Playing Fields arrived from an unlikely source when Luke Morgan got on the end of an excellent Jamie King cross to head home the first for Highgate.
It was 2-0 when player-coach for the day Glaude produced a goal of the season contender with his 10th effort of the campaign.
Again vice-captain King was involved and his peach of a cross found Glaude, who scored with an overhead kick to double Albion’s advantage.
The game and scoring was wrapped up when substitute Robert Taylor set up Craig Gorrie, and he provided a fine finish to secure all three points.
Man of the match went to Sam Bryan, who put in a top performance at centre back and on top of this went on the odd crazy run forward.
Next up for Highgate’s third-team is the quarter-final of the Junior Cup against title foes Zenit St Whetstone Reserves at their St Aloysius Sports Ground home.
