Adams' debut hat trick takes Ware to first away win of the season as records tumble.

With your intrepid reporter elsewhere on this particular afternoon it's as well that this game set numerous records for him to dwell on in the absence of much in the way of a standard match report. Given the result, perhaps he should stay away more often.

So what about those records? First and foremost must be the hat trick scored by Brandon Adams on his debut for the club. It becomes the best debut performance from a striker since Bernie Skeggs scored four in the 8-2 Athenian League win over Aylesbury United 54 years and four days earlier.

By all accounts the three goals were thoroughly deserved and there might have been more but for the action of Adrian Darabant in the Wolves goal. Also noted was the ease with which Adams fitted into the team and in particular his link up work with Dave Cowley who himself might have had a couple of goals with better luck.

Record number two. It was Ware's first away win in the league this season and the best away from home since the division two success at Clapton by the same score back on 15th April 2006. There were no hat tricks in that game though keeper Anthony Anstead did score from the penalty spot.

Record number three. It was our biggest win home or away since the 7-0 defeat of Tilbury back in March 2008. John Frendo, on the bench this week, claimed a hat trick in that game as did Ryan Redford in his first start for the club though he had appeared as a substitute in an earlier game.

Finally it was our first clean sheet in the league away from home this season. This was perhaps all the more remarkable given that neither full back was a regular in that position whilst Jason Brown, the midfielder most responsible for breaking up opposition attacks, remains unavailable due to work commitments.

Despite these apparent setbacks Blues kept the home side's new goal scorer Chid Onokwai quiet. He may be fed up with meeting Ware as he was in the Marlow side that suffered its only league defeat earlier this season by 3-0 at Wodson Park.

This was a game that, apart from a period shortly before the half time break, was under Ware's control. Leigh Rose, Jack Daveney and Louis Blake with his first for the club, scored the other goals but it could have been more. Cowley hit a post and was denied by the keeper in a one on one opportunity whilst Jordon Watson missed a good chance right at the end to make it seven.

Was this a flash in the pan or have Ware risen to a new level? Come and take a look next Saturday when they entertain Chipstead who are just one place above them in the table thanks to a better goal difference of one. If you do come you could perhaps write the match report as on this evidence I may be asked to stay away again.
