George Fake scored twice to give Wrington Redhill a comfortable 3-1 win over Staplegrove at the Recreation Ground last Saturday.

Cory Thomas-Barker, having completed a two-match suspension, returned to the starting line-up in place of Ryan Pugh. 

The hosts quickly got into their swift passing mode with the midfield quartet of Sam Parkinson, Thomas-Barker, Leigh White, and Josh Pitt taking control.

The Redkins opened the scoring when a delightful interchange between White, Pitt and Thomas-Barker saw the latter force goalkeeper Shaun Locke into smothering his attempt at goal.

The ball, however, ballooned up and left Fake with an open goal and he passed it into an empty net to put the hosts one-up.

The lead was extended when Pitt put Fake in again and he fired under Locke for 2-0. 

Amazingly Fake missed out on a first half hat-trick when Pitt provided a great cross but the forward somehow fired over the crossbar.
