Legg in form for Farway
THE Perry Street League was once again hit badly in East Devon and East Dorset by waterlogged pitches
THE Perry Street League was once again hit badly in East Devon and East Dorset by waterlogged pitches.
But Farway Reserves keep managing to sneak in games and, away to Winsham, knocked up a 6-3 win.
But first they had to endure twice going behind and they turned around level 2-2. After the break they forged ahead 4-2 but conceded again after sustained Winsham pressure and life got a little hairy before they conjured up two more goals to stamp their authority on the game.
That man Chris Legg was again on the scoresheet twice - and he has 12 goals this season so far - and was joined by Greg McCollum, who also had two, Paul Merchant and manager Paul Salmon, who chipped in with a thunderous header.

it had been a bad week for the club as the clubhouse was broken into the previous week and thieves took the widescreen tv, sound system, alcohol, snacks and charity boxes.
