Sitting on top of the ECFA CAT 1 table, FSA PRO London took on East Sussex Hastings to stay in a league of their own!
FSA didn’t need any more motivation to take this game on, and that was seen from the intensity of the game right from the off. A long forward pass straight from kick off almost saw our team create a chance but the cross was blocked and cleared out of play. The next seven minutes FSA continued to push and pull Hastings around trying to find a way to score and on the 9th minute found the answer. Mark Soares crossing the ball from the left hand side, landing at Denzel Akyeampong’s feet who drove the ball home from 6 yards out.
Hastings responded well and within a minute had equalised. Poor defending allowed their striker to beat two men and finish the ball beyond the goalkeeper. FSA then regained their shape and discipline and controlled all aspects of the game. 15 minutes later it was a goal by Lee Quincey which gave FSA the lead once again. A great cross from Dominic Fisher from the right hand side found Lee who volleyed the ball past Hastings' goalkeeper. FSA managed to hold onto the lead to halftime.
The second half was another test of patience as Hastings sat in and looked to counter attack. It took FSA 20 minutes before they found a goal to increase their lead. This time striker Dominic Fisher finishing off a through ball inside the 18 yard box from Kenny Bellamingle.
This looked to have inspired more confidence in FSA as they continued to create chances with one goal being disallowed for a close offside call. Hastings did look to chase the game and created one opportunity of their own but missed and squandered their chance to pull the game back. Almost immediately after, FSA were awarded a penalty after a foul on Charlie Sissarello. Errikos Bianaku was the player to step up and finish the penalty to take the score to 4-1 on the 84th minute.
FSA PRO London finished the game 4-1 in a well deserved win and continue their unbeaten run in the league this season.
