Hilton win the Dickie Trophy

Hilton 4 – 0 Glendale

Glendale were forced to make changes before the game started as Stuart Hay was injured in the warm up. The game kicked off with the sun shining and the pitch in perfect condition.

Hilton went on the attack from the kick off and Glendale keeper Walker had to look lively when Clayton rounded a defender and fired in a shot. In thirteen minutes Glendale’s keeper Walker was red carded for making a save outside his box. Hilton went ahead in twenty eight minutes after a move down the left by Sinclair whose cross was met by Clayton and he scored from close range.

Half time: 1-0

Just on the hour mark Hilton’s Sinclair scored the goal of the game when his forty yard drive flew into the net giving the substitute keeper no chance. Glendale kept trying to get back into the game but could not get past the blue shirts of Hilton’s defence. Hilton went three up in seventy six minutes when Merchant scored from the edge of the box. Hilton’s Shirreffs made it 4-0 three minutes later. With minutes to go Hilton’s Main was sent off for a tackle on Glendale’s Bissett.

Full time: 4-0
