Crane 5 Watton 1
Crane returned to winning ways with a comprehensive win over their mid-table opponents Watton.
Watton had the best of the opening exchanges, passing and moving the ball with confidence while Crane were still settling into the game. This didn't last for too long though and soon it was Crane playing the passing game with precision and patience.

Despite the superiority of Cranes movement, almost all of the goals came from individual pieces of skill that broke the Watton resistance. After a tense opening 20 minutes, Aiden Bloomfield broke from midfield into the channel to latch onto an Adrian Dawson pass down the right. He carried the ball to the by-line, cut in and kept on going around the keeper before popping the ball into an open goal on his reverse.
Next up it was Craig Bloomfield whose individual run under close attention from the defenders got the reward it deserved when his shot deflected up and looped over the keeper.

After half time Crane struck quickly to add a third, this time Mark Campbell nipping in to convert Dawson's cross from close range. At this point Watton scored their goal, a wayward shot deflecting in off the unfortunate Andy Elden and leaving the keeper with no chance.
Unabated, Craig Bloomfield struck again with a vicious penalty corner strike and with only minutes remaining Bloomfield went on another run, after being fouled repeatedly the umpire let play run on and as soon as he crossed into the circle, smashed in his well earned hat-trick.
