Cambridge City hit Egham for six as the Lilywhites produced a clinical performance to secure all 3 points with a 6-1 victory.

Such a result looked improbable during the early exchanges, and Egham can consider themselves unlucky not to take the lead when Alex Nolan saw a long range effort hit the post with Niall Conroy beaten.

City were playing with their customary high tempo, and Salim Relizani was the next one to create an opportunity when he displayed good technique to control the ball to set up Lewis Wilson who saw his effort saved on the second attempt by Patrick Ohman in the visitors goal.

From the next attack, City opened the scoring and it was arguably one of the moves of the match. Mason Spence started the attack after he won the ball. It was then played out to Ross Paterson who delivered an inch perfect cross for Sharman to head home.

On the stroke of half time, it was Paterson and Sharman involved again. Paterson was upended in the box, and Sharman stepped up to take the penalty, but saw his effort saved by Ohman.

City started the second half in the ascendency and Tom Knowles was unlucky not to do better when he saw his effort hit the side netting. However, the home side extended their lead shortly afterwards when Sharman redeemed himself for the earlier missed penalty by heading past Ohman.

To their credit, Egham didn’t roll over at this stage of the game, and could have got back into the contest if Devante McKain had done better with a header. Then, the visitors won a free kick after Conroy was penalised for upending Brendan Matthew outside of his box, but their effort was cleared by the City defence.

But then came a moment of magic from Tom Knowles which effectively ended the game as a contest. Beating the offside trap, the winger found himself one on one with Ohman and delivered a sublime lob for City’s third of the game.

With City pouring forward at every opportunity, Sharman was then provided with a wonderful opportunity for his hat-trick. Relizani played him in and from six yards out, Sharman put the ball over the bar when he really should have scored.

It was then the turn of Tom Knowles to create the next City opportunity. Spotting Ohman off his line the Cambridge United loanee tried to echo his first goal with a lob, but this time was further out, and the Egham stopper did well to palm the effort away.

With Egham so far in arrears they kept at the task and Matthew missed two opportunities in quick succession to reduce the deficit.

However, City then added the fourth when they won a corner which fell invitingly to Jordan Gent who fired home on the volley from the just inside the area.

Four then became five when City won their second penalty of the afternoon which was duly converted by Lewis Wilson. Any hopes that City were going to keep a clean sheet were extinguished when Egham substitute Aaron Berry fired home from close range.

The Lilywhites then rounded off the afternoon with their sixth of the match when Lewis Wilson lobbed the goalkeeper before new signing Brandon McCarthy applied the finishing touch.

The result moves City up to seventh in the table with the next challenge a midweek trip to Barton Rovers on Tuesday night.
