Report: Weston-Super-Mare 0-3 Maidenhead United
Posted on 14th October 2023
Alan Devonshire made three changes to the side who drew 2-2 with Rochdale last weekend as Harry Parsons, Brad Keetch and Remy Clerima all came in for David Omilabu, Charlee Adams and James Golding.
It was an evenly contested start to the game with neither side able to control possession or create chances during the early stages.
The first chance of the game fell to Tobi Sho-Silva, the forward got on the end of a good delivery into the box by Casey Pettit but couldn’t direct his header past keeper Harrison Lee.
Maidenhead continued to grow into the game as the first half progressed and maintained more of the ball looking to create an opening.
Harry Parsons would be the first to create an opening from range, his strike was easily collected by Lee in goal.
Sho-Silva would make all of the pressure count on the half-hour mark getting his second goal in a Maidenhead shirt after getting on the end of a corner.
Sho-Silva got his and Maidenhead’s second minutes later after some neat play from substitute David Omilabu and Jayden Mitchell-Lawson left the forward with an easy finish.

The Seagull's first chance of the game came in the early stages of the second half through Rex Mannings whose effort from range was easily saved by Craig Ross.
Maidenhead continued the second half in the same way they finished the first controlling most of the ball, albeit not creating any chances early on.
Pettit had the Magpies first chance of the second half with a speculative effort from range which almost caught out Lee.
Zico Asare was the next in a blue shirt to fire from range, his strike from distance was well stopped by Lee.
Maidenhead’s onslaught continued with Omilabu who danced into the box with the ball but couldn’t get his strike on target.
Reece Smith’s tricky footwork almost earned Maidenhead their third just after the hour mark, Lee stopped his goal-bound effort from inside the box.
The hosts were awarded an indirect free-kick from around five yards out, Maidenhead put everyone on the line and defended the free-kick well.
Sho-Silva got his hat-trick in stoppage time after reacting first following a good save from Lee to tap into an open net.
