Crick, the flybe.

Combination’s leading goalscorer last term, was on fire on his old stomping ground as the Scots exacted revenge for the midweek Charity Cup defeat.Crick said: ‘I was surprised I scored five.

It was strange – it wasn’t one of those games where I had more chances, it’s just they all went in.’I think we deserved to win.

It was better than Wednesday – we passed it better and we worked harder.

I’m not quite sure it was a 5-0 victory but you take it.’I thought First Tower played quite well again.

It was important to start the league season with a win, especially as Trinity went last season without a defeat.’Scottish go straight to the top of Division I, ahead of champions Trinity on goal difference.Trinity also kept a clean sheet after a 2-0 home win over Portuguese Club at the Riley Field.Both goals came in the second half from Paul Crompton and substitute Barry Beatson.’It was a difficult game,’ said manager Joe Morley.

‘We had seven first-teamers missing but that’s no excuse.

The lads who came in did really well.’They had an early chance and missed it but after that I thought we were in control.

Full credit to Portuguese, they battled right to the end.’Mark Woodford was the hero for Jersey Wanderers in their 5-4 win against St Peter at the Hockey Club.Woodford popped up in the dying seconds to poke home the winner with the very last kick of the game after Saints had equalised in the 90th minute.Junior Matthew Purdie, Kevan Crowell, Paul Banahan and Bradley Vowden scored for Wanderers while Darren Freeman (2), Lee Turner and Martin Cassidy against his old club netted for the home side.Woodford said: ‘I was pleased to get the goal but it was a team performance.

We deserved to win – we worked very hard for the full 90 minutes and we kept pushing for the winner.’St Paul’s and Rozel Rovers battled out a 1-1 draw at St Saviour’s.Lee Bradshaw scored from the penalty spot for the fourth consecutive game for St Paul’s with young Carl de la Cour hitting the equaliser for promoted Rovers.
