Reggie Lambe Scores & Named Man Of Match

December 7, 2020

Reggie Lambe made an excellent debut with Stowmarket Town, scoring to help them claim a 5-0 win over Eynesbury Rovers, with the Bermudian footballer also named Man of the Match.

The club’s match report said, “Jack Ainsley and Seb Dunbar both struck in the first half to hand Stow a 2-0 lead, as the Old Gold and Blacks made a pleasing start to their first outing in six weeks.

“New signing Reggie Lambe marked his debut with a goal after the break, before Josh Mayhew and substitute Luke Read completed the scoring as new manager Paul Musgrove got off to the perfect start in his first game in charge.

“With the lifting of lockdown earlier the week, Stow were back on the pitch for the first time since the 2-2 draw at Mildenhall Town on October 24, and with a new man at the helm following the resignation of long-serving boss Rick Andrews last month. Andrews’ assistant manager Musgrove stepped up to take up the vacant role and included new recruit Lambe in his first starting line-up.

“The ex-Cambridge United player showed his class early on in the second-round tie with some nifty footwork, while the visitors Eynesbury, who sit top of the Spartan South Midlands League, were denied a goal inside the opening 10 minutes by James Bradbrook, the Stow goalkeeper.

“The breakthrough would arrive at the other end, as an Anton Clarke corner was flicked on by Mayhew and Ainsley finished from close range on 19 minutes.

“Left-back Dunbar doubled Stow’s lead four minutes before half time, with a right-footed effort going through a crowded penalty area and into the corner.

“Three goals in a six-minute spell early into the second half then took the game beyond Eynesury’s reach.

“First, debutant Lambe’s header looped over the visiting goalkeeper Shay Griffiths to make it 3-0 on 54 minutes.

“Mayhew scored from the penalty spot two minutes later, before another corner caused havoc in the Eynesbury box and led to Read, a substitute for Chris Casement at half time, taking the acclaim for Stow’s fifth goal of the afternoon.

“The 5-0 result equalled Stow’s third-biggest win in the FA Vase, and takes them into the third round [last 64] of the national competition for a third consecutive season.”
