"A squad of 16 players, goals up early, water bottles filled and chilled, kick-off on time..... no-one knew quite why everything was going so smoothly, but it was!"

On Sunday 11th January 2004, the stars had alligned and the Gods decided that this was the Heath's day. Ivey welcomed new-signing Delroy Kilborn from Conference outfit Pierce-Hydro, and had Glenn Billingham back in the squad after a brief loan spell at Feyenoord Rotterdam in the Dutch league. Also returning to the squad were Rob Page, Josh Urquhart and Wayne Hamill. Ivey made only one change from the side that demolished Dynamo, choosing to rest himself and slot Billingham straight back in.
Double Top were the opposition in this rare league fixture, and allowed Heath to saunter and swagger their way to a 15-0 mauling. A steady flow of goals at regular intervals made this a very pleasent morning for Kings Heath. The defensive partnership of Billingham and Blenco were rarely troubled and allowed to play some attractive football from the back. This was a trend that carried on through the team. As usually happens in these games, the shape gets lost and sillyness creeps in. That never happened as the football machine that is Kings Heath pressed and pressed.
The goals came in the shape of a five-timer from Marc Jeffers, a double-brace from Craig Sampson, thats 15 goals in 2 games from the strike partners. Also on the scoresheet were Nick Blenco & Bob Tansley with singles, Andy Blenco with a brace and Josh Urquhart maintained his ratio of 2 goals-per-game, his first was the pick of the bunch. A powerful 60-yard run before an explosive finish that crashed in off the bar. Named and shamed for NOT being on the list of goalscorers are; Matty Newton (Bob stole it), Delroy Kilborn (nearly!), Glenn Billingham (Blenc's was selfish!), Chris Davies (not sure how!?), Julian Anger ("i set up shit-loads!"), Olly Urquhart (un-lucky with free-kick), Lee Morin (came very close from corner) and Rob Page (i cant believe he's had his hair cut).
