Watched by a crowd of 118, Micah Bishop opened the scoring mid-way through the first half, his left footed free-kick crashing home off the crossbar. Before the half hour, turner had opened his account with a precise finish from Bishop’ glorious through pass; and by the interval, JT had confirmed a hat trick with two identical finishes when put through on goal.

“I thought we were worthy winners today” Steve Whitehead
Just before the hour, Turner had his fourth, finishing in the bottom corner to round out a well-deserved three points and trigger a delighted response from Manager Stephen Whitehead when he spoke to Ian and Glenn.
Stephen, in the blink of an eye you're up to eighth after a splendid win today. Sum up the performance for us.
I thought we were very worthy winners today. Our individual performances all over the pitch were very good and that made us excellent collectively. JT with another 4 goals in a single game is showing the form he’s in and it’s clicking well with Sam up top who has been tremendous for us over the last week. Bish had a good ninety minutes as did Stokes. We had Roey (Thomas Roebuck) returning -who gave us a massive lift -and Fewkey alongside of him was very good on the day. The back four and keeper; well, what do I say about them? I think 3 clean sheets in a row suggests how well they are playing.
Jordan Turner has certainly found his way to goal in the last couple of weeks. You did say when he got off the mark his confidence would kick in. What are his main attributes and how have the rest of the team got him going?
He links up well with Sam and his willingness to keep making the runs is why he’s getting his chances ; either from Sam or the quality we have in the team to find him and when they have found him at the minute he’s hitting the back of the net. Long may it continue.
It’s a quick reunion with Nostell next Saturday Stephen. It's sure to be a very different game to the recent Cup win so how will you prepare for the match-up?
Hopefully we can keep this run going. Up the Hallam!
