Tooting & Mitcham United 0 Wealdstone 6
HAT-TRICK hero Richard Jolly inspired Wealdstone to a thumping win over Tooting & Mitcham on Tuesday night.
Jolly’s treble took his tally to 46 for the season as the Stones made the most of the absence of a recognised keeper between the sticks for United.
Former Gillingham striker Charlie Stimson put on a pair of gloves and took his place in goal for the hosts but will be regretting the decision after conceding six.
Jolly gave the Stones a dream start when he knocked in the opener from close range with the game barely a minute old.
And within 15 minutes the hitman bagged his second as he latched onto a lovely through ball from Chris O’Leary before coolly slotting home.
The Stones were rampant and Jolly claimed his hat-trick just after the half-hour when Stimson spilled the ball in the six-yard box, allowing the forward to pounce.
There was no let up after the restart and Lee Chappell made it four shortly after the interval as Stimson’s nightmare continued.
Moments later and it was five as skipper Wes Parker nodded home a corner that was swung in from the right hand side.
Connor Smith added the sixth after 55 minutes from the edge of the area as the Stones fans behind the goal chanted ‘we want ten’.
But United regained some composure and Wealdstone took their foot off the gas in the last half-hour, closing out the game to continue their push for the play-offs.
