Teen star Remy notches deadly double for Blues


Two goals from Mark Stimson’s ‘other’ exciting 19-year-old, Ellis Remy, rounded off a miserable home defeat for Maidenhead at the hands of form-hitting Grays on Tuesday.

The former Lincoln City player – who has promised much in outings since joining Blues in October – has tended to be overshadowed by the goal scoring talents of Freddy Eastwood.

But a brace of goals against Maidenhead at York Road showed the north Londoner injury returnee’s full potential. The win also underlines Stimson’s squad strength in depth.

The first Blues goal came from Lloyd Opara within eight minutes.

Wes Daly tapped the ball into Opara’s path, allowing th young striker to slide the orb past keeper Nick Hart.

Magpies came close to pulling one back half an hour in when they were awarded a penalty.

But on-form Mel Capleton got down quickly to redirect Steve Hale’s spot kick over the bar.

Magpies did, however, level the score after 20 minutes of second-half play when Hale’s quick pass to Lawrence Yaku allowed the striker to beat Capleton.

But Stimmo’s men are never satisfied with a draw and a sweeping move from Grays was rounded off with a great goal from 29-year-old Blues captain Martin Carthy – signed from Billericay last season.

Grays smelt blood and when the home side changed their format, bringing on an extra striker, they exploited the midfield weakness – substitute Remy clattering in Leroy Griffith’s pin-point cross.

Remy struck again in injury time with a lofted head over the stranded keeper.
