Shakeem Albouy at the double as Parish advance in cup
YMSC 2 Hamilton Parish 4
Hamilton Parish booked their place in the first round of the FA Cup after two goals in each half helped them eliminate Young Men’s Social Club at Police Field yesterday.
Shakeem Albouy netted a goal in each half to lead the scoring for Parish who, like Social Club, are looking to launch another push for promotion after they were the two top teams last season when the campaign ended in December because of the Covid pandemic.
“No disrespect to the other teams who we have played already, but today was a match, Social Club played good and it was a lesson for the boys,” said Sergio Goater, the Parish coach.
Social Club had the game’s first scoring opportunity after just two minutes when a stinging drive from Nigel Williams forced a confident save from goalkeeper Nigel Burgess.
It took Parish just nine minutes to break the deadlock, Albouy heading home from a corner on the right, Parish’s first real threat.
Despite having top scorer Jordan Outerbridge playing at left back in the first half because of the absence of Jarye Bean, Parish still created some good chances early on. Outerbridge converted from the penalty spot in the 31st minute after Tahjae Welch was fouled by Callon Woolridge.
Social Club pulled a goal back right at the half to stay when Clay Darrell’s shot went in off the far post after a good run and cross down the right by Akim Johnston.
The home team was hoping to carry that momentum into the second half but it was Parish who restored their two-goal lead four minutes after the restart. A corner on the left wasn’t cleared by the Social Club defence before Samuel McKittrick knocked it on for defender Quinn Outerbridge who beat goalkeeper Ryan Evans with his shot into the near post.
Jordan Outerbridge was now playing a more attacking role on the right side for Parish following a double substitution at the start of the second half, Macquille Walker and Nigel Tucker-Talbot coming on, the latter going to left-back.
“In the beginning I had to make a change because our left-back Jarye Bean had to work today,” Goater explained.
“In the first half it didn’t really work for us as they were more in the game. I made a tactical switch at the half and it worked out.”
A triple substitution by Social Club in the 66th minute worked out for them as just two minutes later Jamir Lewis-Trott scored when his shot from outside the box caught goalkeeper Nigel Burgess off guard before going in at the near post.
Parish made certain there would be no late fightback by Social Club, with Albouy scoring his second goal of the match in the 76th minute when his run down the left side resulted in a shot from an acute angle finding the target.
