Just back from watching City v Ferriby U in the ER cup at Bishop Burton. City's team was made up mainly of U23's some U18's. City crushed Ferriby 7-1 with a dominant performance. City Andrews Akbas Fleming Maslen-Jones Barkworth (C) Thacker Chadwick Edwards Lofts Annan City were by far the better team throughout. Ferriby started well and Kendall scored after 5 minutes with a looping shot from the left side which went over the keeper into the top left corner. After that it was all city, Jonathan Edwards was excellent, and opened the scoring for City with a well taken goal. He doubled his tally with a thumping header from a corner from the right. 2-1 to City at Half time. Second half was all City who really played some very good passing football, Edwards got his hatrick to make it 3 -1 and then Tyler Hamilton made it 4 with a lovely individual run into the area and a good finish. Jonathan Edwards quickly made it 5 with his fourth, and then Luke Lofts got the sixth with a fine finish from the right of the area. Jonathan Edwards finish the scoring off netting his 5th and City's seventh. A bonus I was stood next to Mike Phelan who was watching and had a 15 minute chat with him at half time. Said the players were over the moon in the dressing room after the game, and it was a big lift for the whole of the club the win. He fears Keane could be out for the season, and Hernandez for a month. We had a chat about the apathy and he and the players understand the fans reasons. He said that unfortunately the owners just don't understand the relationship that the supporters have with their club, he said they just don't get it. Anyhow he was sure things would be sorted out and confident that come the new year things would be different. He would expand on it, but I got the feeling that he felt the club would be sold.
