Andrews plays a starring role as Moors run riot

Midfielder Ryan Andrews was Moors Academy’s star man in a stellar performance that saw them storm to an 8-0 victory against Barnt Green Spartak.

Andrews believes Moors showed their class at the weekend and got back to playing the free flowing passing football which had deserted them in recent games.

“It all just seemed to click for us,’ said Ryan. “There was some great movement off the ball, taking minimal touches, moving the ball quicker.

“As soon as you got possession, you looked up and there were at least four or five options. Everyone was looking to get on the ball.

“Everything we have been working on in training came together in a very complete team performance.”

Andrews was probably the pick of the bunch on Saturday, he was instrumental in the middle of the park. He capped a fine performance with a goal and two assists.

“I felt I gave a very decent performance on Saturday,” he said. “I thought I was at the top of my game.

“I was very happy with the second assist. It had a bit of Mesut Ozil about it. I picked it up on the left and played a fade pass in behind the defender to Rubyn (Gill) and he slotted it away.”

The midfielder feels he was given more freedom which allowed him to link up with the front three and provide a real threat going forward.

“On Saturday, I felt I was given more of a licence to roam and get forward,” said Ryan. “At times it was as if I was playing left winger.

“It seemed that I was always on the front foot, in and around the box. I was constantly playing in and around the final third.”

It was one of Ryan’s stand out games but he acknowledges the contribution the rest of the team made and believes there is a real togetherness about the squad at the minute.

“Team morale is sky high at the moment,” he said. “Everyone is on fire, and there is a real buzz about the place.

“Everyone gets on, there’s never any arguments in training and it is only ever constructive criticism.

“People are never moaning at each other. We are constantly encouraging each other to do better.

“Hopefully we can push on and cement promotion, because that’s what all the lads want.”
