Taylor treble seals Grays Setanta Cup triumph

A sparkling Scott Taylor hat-trick helped Grays to a comfortable Setanta Shield victory against Blue Square South strugglers Welling United.

In the third minute Taylor gave an example of what was to follow with a neat take-down and turn. That piece of skill came to nothing that came to nothing but was the beginning of a very promising performance by the much-travelled striker.

And in the 11th minute Taylor punished a unforced error by Welling, sneaking in the box to coolly slot the ball away.

The game was set up for Grays to run away with but they didn't force the advantage and Welling found their feet.

In the 21st minute a strong run by Orlando Smith forced Ernie Cooksey to tackle him in the box but in doing so the Grays man handled and the ref pointed straight to the spot.

Welling had missed their last three penalties so they turned to the experienced Richard Carpenter who nailed the kick.

Grays began the second half briskly with a strong penalty claim of their own on the 47th minute. It was unanswered but they regained the advantage four minutes later when a long ball by Santos Gaia was knocked down by a dominant Danny Kedwell for Taylor to volley sweetly home.

With Welling in disarray a third Grays goal was inevitable and the game was sealed in the 83rd minute when substitute Aaron O'Connor broke on the right and forced the ball across the face of goal where Taylor was on hand to complete his hat-trick.
