Wembley 4-1 Colliers Wood United
Wembley assistant manager George Green had nothing but praise for Adrian Dinham after the striker continued his prolific goal scoring form with a hat-trick in the 4-1 defeat of Colliers Wood United, writes Arvin Raj .
Green believes Dinham is now showing his true worth and that it is hardly surprising.
“He’s such a good player,” Green said. “He’s bang in form and he’ll always get goals at this level.”
“Adrian has been with us for a couple of seasons and we started the season with a different partnership up front, Adrian was coming off the bench and doing quite well. We just thought at the time he wasn’t ready to start but over the last couple of games he’s really showed his worth and he’s really come into his own.”
“It was something that we always knew that Adrian had. He’s had one or two little things that happened to him, so we actually took him out of it, to actually reintroduce him back into it and he’s done really well. And we know that he’s a natural goalscorer.”
Dinham put Wembley ahead after nine minutes when Michael Eacott failed to hold onto Alex Mokeni-Kane’s powerful shot, running in to head home the rebound.
Just before the break Dinham dribbled from the touchline before cutting in and unleashing a low drive at the near post that Eacott failed to cover for the second goal of the afternoon, on 42 minutes.
Dinham was sent through on goal by Yassine Fehmi-Gil on 64 minutes, rolling the ball past the onrushing Eacott into the bottom left-hand corner, to complete his hat-trick.
Fehmi-Gil blast the ball into the goal from the penalty spot 20 minutes from time after substitute Issah Abubakar (pictured) was brought down in the box.
Ten minutes later Colliers Wood grabbed consolation from a penalty of their won, awarded following a tangle in the box, Chris Burdon finding the net.
