Do not adjust your screens you read the score correctly, a massacre of the highest order smashed my previous record from the Norton Canes 18-1 massacre last year.
I have been following the form of Florence quite closely. Before the game , they had lost all 19 of their games and a goal difference if just shy of minus 200. This was my first visit to this ground in just over 4 years and little has changed, in fact nothing except they now charge an admission fee.
Social in the red, fancied their chances and we’re ahead after about 40 seconds , a free kick from the left was deflected off a outstretched leg. On 3 minutes, it was 2-0 finishing into the far corner. On 7 minutes, it was three running down the right and striking from 6 yards.
On 12 minutes, they charged down the right skilled two players before knocking the ball across for a tap in. On 15 minutes, it became embarrassing as Brereton struck in a shot off a defender. There was a 15 minute lull before the sixth when the ball was sprayed across from the right for a easy finish.
On 34 minutes it was 7-0, skilling the portly left back before tucking it in at the far post. One minute later it was eight shooting low from 14 yards. On 38 minutes it was 9-0, a three on one attack was knocked in. On 41 minutes, it was double figures when the ball was laid off for a 7 yard low shot. Brereton then blazed a penalty over the bar before although being blatantly offside, Brereton charged before passing the ball off for a easy finish
Brereton Social ..11 Florence.. 0
Things didn’t let up in the second half,straight after the restart heading home a corner. It was then 13-0 cutting in from the right before finishing. The 14th came from a diving header and the 15th was a great goal striking the ball into the top right corner. It was 16-0, when Social took the ball off a defender and struck it into the top left. The 17th came from another header from a corner.
The 18th was from a tap in and the 19th from a defensive blunder clearing the ball straight off his own man it went straight back towards the keeper and was tapped in. The twentieth was poked into the bottom corner. It was 21-0, struck from a low shot and it was 22-0 when the ball was forced over the line.
The goals kept coming and it was 23-0 when Social were awarded a penalty that was saved but the rebound was stuck in. The 24th when a corner was headed into Florence’s own net and the final goal came from a one in one finished beyond the keeper.
Florence clearly have severe problems and have all the hallmarks of a side ready to give up. They seem to be taking anyone who will turn up, Brereton are far from a great side but this was a walk in the park. Most of the goals were avoidable once a player had lost the ball they just have up . The bench was also a sad looking sight no subs just two fellows possibly manager and a fan .
