Greenslade sees new side thump his old charges
LYMPSTONE were in superb form as they claimed a 4-0 victory over Countess Wear Dynamos.
For Lympets boss Dyane Greenslade it was a very special victory for it was Dynamo’s he worked with before switching allegiance to Lympstone.
A stag weekend trip restricted Greenslade’s options but he would have been highly satisfied with what his patched together side served up against his former club.

Both sides made bright starts but it was Lympstone who struck first when a sharp run from Jack Greenslade was ended unceremoniously in the area and Greenslade kept his clam to slot the resultant spot kick.

It got better for Lympstone minutes later when a long throw from Jamie Alford was headed home by Benny Canning to send Lympstone into the break with a 2-0 lead.
Dynamo’s began strongly after the break and it needed some fine saves by keeper Jordan Hockhold and solid defending, particularly from Stuart Tuckett, to keep them at bay.

At the other end a seemingly lost cause was chased after by Greenslade and when he squared it to the supporting Alford the latter stroked the ball into the net for a 3-0 lead.
It was soon 4-0 as some great midfield work ended with Greenslade receiving the ball on the edge of the Dynamo’s area and he turned the defender before rifling the all into the bottom corner of the net.
A delighted Lympets boss said: “It was a great team performance and a very special individual shift from Jack (Greenslade). But, for all our great attacking play the star of the game for me was keeper Jordan (Hockhold) who’s calm control of things provided the solid foundation from which we were able to go out and win the game, and in a degree of comfort too.”
