Newly promoted Beesands Rovers finally showed their true colours against their more experienced Premier League rivals.

A great 3-1 win at home lifts the Bees into 5th place in the table.

This local derby was played infront of a crowd of 80+ vocal spectators and whereas the reverse fixture before Xmas was a scrappy affair, this game saw both teams serve up football of the highest quality.

Goals came from Sammy Lane, Ash Yeoman and Louis Brace - and it was decided the Beesands Man of the Match award would go to the whole team, with a special mention to Josh Clarke and Rhys Morrallee, both full backs having great games despite constantly facing fresh wingers. This weekend Beesands face a tough away trip to run away league leader Ilsington Villa, 2-30pm kick off, with several players away due to it being the May Day Bank Holiday Monday.
