Wrington Redhill v Cutters Friday FC
Thursday 4th February 2016
Location : Everyone Active Stadium
After a long lay off and much work by the Chairman and the committee a number of games were arranged at the Everyone Active Stadium. The first game (Nailsea Tickenham) being cancelled due to the weather but on Thursday we actually got a game on.
Wrington kicked off and took the lead almost immediately. On 2 minutes a great through ball by Sam Johnson set Luke Patten sprinting towards goal where from the edge of the box Patten struck a fine finish into the bottom left corner of the net.
Two more chances followed in quick succession for Leigh White (shot) and from a corner a strong header from Harry Iles went just wide.
Then on 4 minutes Wrington won a free kick just inside Cutters half. While the Cutters keeper was sorting out his defence Sam Johnson saw his chance and struck a firm shot that hit the underside of the bar and settled in the back of the net for a 2-0 lead.
Straight from the restart Cutters had there best chance of the game. From the edge of the box the Cutters forward sent a fine curling shot towards the top corner only to see Wrington keeper Jordan Paton make a full length flying save pushing the ball around the post.
Wrington continued to dominate and on 23 minutes good work from Graham Cheeseman on the left-wing saw him cross the ball into the box. A nice piece of control by Patten allowed him space in the box and a fine finish followed from 12 yards out. 3-0
Wrington confirmed their dominance in the game when only 2 minutes into the second half they scored again. A cross from Mike Rowcliffe found Simon Riggs free in the box and a cool finish made it 4-0.
Further chances for Cheeseman and Patten came and went but on 75 minutes Wrington scored again. A Sam Johnson free kick was headed on to the back post where Chris Gale was waiting to finish neatly into the botton corner. 5-0
Wrington cruised through the rest of the game and on 88 minutes from a corner Mike Rowcliffe completed the scoring. 6-0
MOTM : Mike Rowcliffe : Fine second half performance.
Manager Smith said, ‘ It was good to get back out onto the pitch. The team played well and we scored some decent goals. This win took us up to 5th so we now need to keep it going’
