Match of the Marsh: Inter Moore see off Homerton
Inter Moore close in on leaders Millwall Albion in East London Sunday Premier Division
Ten man Inter Moore put in their ‘best performance over the last two years’ according to boss Tony Field to beat Premier Division rivals Homerton Rangers 3-0 at Hackney Marshes on Sunday.
Man of the match Ricky Field hit a stunning hat-trick to lead his side to victory as Inter moved up to second, two points behind leaders Millwall Albion but with a game in hand.
The manner of the win brought great delight to boss Field, who was keen to wax lyrical about his side’s display.
“We only had 10 players due to players being unavailable and we beat one of the better teams in the league,” he said.
“We scored two early goals and then scored again early in the second half. We were excellent and I would say that was one of the best performances over the past two years.
“That result sets us up perfectly. We have a couple of hard games coming up, but we have a game in hand over Millwall and if we win that we go top.

“It is all to play for as far as we are concerned.”
Mid-table Rangers were far from their best and player-assistant boss Martin Griffin had some grievances about the contest.
“The first goal was offside and it was disappointing because it gave them great confidence and it was an uphill task after that,” he moaned.
“A couple of players were asked to play out of position and some didn’t really turn up and play as well as they could.
“It was a fair performance from ourselves but we were nowhere near our best.”
Inter Moore: Hall 9, Smith 7, Davis 8, Carins 7, Deering 6, T Field 8, Magnus 8, Jones, R Field 9*, Parker 7.
