Gloucestershire Northern Senior League: Sharpness 4 Lydbrook 1
2:11pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in Sport
MARLEY THOMAS scored a ten-minute hat-trick as Sharpness claimed their first win of the season, beating bottom club Lydbrook.
The Sharks had a scare in the first minute when they were lucky not to concede a penalty following an Andy Webber challenge.
Lydbrook were lucky also when a terrific drive by Tommy Franklin appeared to cross the line, but the goal was not given.
However, in the next ten minutes the result was settled when Thomas scored three goals.
The visitors never gave up, though, and pulled a goal back midway through the second-half.
Scott Bennett scored goal number four for Sharpness to wrap up the win.
After missing the whole of last season through injury, James Higgs came on for the last ten minutes for the Sharks.
Sharpness travel to Dursley on Saturday (3pm).
