Fryerns 0-7 Hatch Lane United (Sunday Premier Cup Final)

Hatch Lane United are Sunday Premier Cup Winners

Fryerns 0-7 Hatch Lane United, Sunday 7th April 2024, Kick-Off 2:30pm, Bowers & Pitsea FC, Essex Sunday Premier Cup Final.

Hatch Lane United turned on the style during a resounding 7-0 win over Fryerns in the Essex Sunday Premier Cup Final at Bowers & Pitsea FC.

Tyler Dolan and Montel Shalders-Gayle both netted hat-tricks at the Len Salmon Stadium in a dominant display, with Daniel Couldridge also getting on the score sheet. Hatch Lane were 2-0 up at the interval, and they ruthlessly pressed home their advantage after the break.

The danger signs were there for Paul Stringer’s side as early as the 5th minute as Couldridge’s strike was met by a fine save from goalkeeper Charlie Perry. And Hatch Lane made their early pressure count with 20 minutes on the clock as Dolan used his strength to get past the Fryerns rearguard before bundling the ball into the back of the net.

Last season’s Essex Sunday Corinthian League winners continued to show a lot of attacking intent in the opening exchanges, and they deservedly doubled their lead on 33 minutes as Mekeal Williams’ cross fell to Couldridge, who dispatched with composure and confidence.

Hatch Lane began the second half as they had started the first and they had the opportunity to effectively guarantee a cup triumph two minutes in. Williams’ header called Perry into action, who made a fine stop from close range. Though they made their dominance pay further on 68 minutes when Tyler Hinds’ free kick forced Perry to get down well and save, but only into the path of Shalders-Gayle, who headed home.

Following the dismissal of Fryerns’ Liam Aston for a bad challenge on Andre Errol-Spence, the floodgates appeared to have opened further, and Hatch Lane’s fourth came six minutes after the third. Tarome Hemmings’ delivery fell perfectly for Shalders-Gayle, who angled in a header.

Fryerns, who sat in fourth place in the Sceptre Sunday League Division One, struggled to cope with Hatch Lane’s excellent play, with and without the ball. It was only a matter of time before the net bulged again, and the next goal was from the spot. Dolan was brought down, and he took on the responsibility of sending his penalty straight down the middle.

Dolan then netted his third four minutes from time. This gave Hatch Lane the taste for even more scoring success, and they achieved it through Shalders-Gayle for the seventh with a fine strike inside the box for his hat-trick.
