Dad of the Match: Darren Brigham


Papathinaikos kept the pressure on the top teams with a well earned victory over newly formed Dadford City, largely thanks to an emphatic display by Dad of the Match Darren Brigham which returned 9 goals. Dadford struggled in the opening stages as Papathinaikos rushed into a comfortable 4-0 lead but soon got into the game and pulled level at 4-4 approaching half time. In the second half Papa cranked up a gear to regain the lead but Dadford refused to give up and again from a 8-4 deficit almost pulled level as the score reached 8-7 as the game entered the final quarter. Papa's quality held out and thanks to further goals for Brigham pulled out a 13-7 lead but Dadford should not be disheartened by a spirited display.


Dad of the Match Brigham unsurprisingly shoots to the top of the scoring charts with 13 goals in total. Both Earley and Debbage sit on 9 in joint second behind him. Brigham now boast a goal scoring ratio of almost double anyone else this season.


A decent defensively display, aided by the loan of Taylor, leaves Godfrey 3rd in the golden glove. Just 1.2 goals per game seperate the top three keepers!


Next up; Papa face Oldman Athletic on 10/09/18 whilst Dadford City host Dadston Villa on 03/09/18.
