Monsieur Salut’s younger daughter Nathalie was hailed in this week’s Ealing Gazette for a ‘stunning 30-yard volley’ for her team in a cup win. How we longed for one of those from SAFC. But Pete Sixsmith saw clinicial finishing of a different kind as Steven Fletcher scored twice and Connor Wickham once to deliver a first Premier win of the season, each also clocking up superb assist. Stoke’s goal was a sloppy one to concede and Sixer saw more anxious moments than he’d have liked, but this was a massive boost to the team and supporters’ confidence …
