Wells City Reserves 4 Wrington Redhill 1
Playing their 4th game in 12 days against promotion chasing Wells and with a few regulars unavailable meant that Leigh White’s team came up just short of what was required. Whilst Wells had the majority of possession in the first half and moved the ball quickly Wrington Redhill defended well and Williams in goal was largely untroubled and dealt comfortably with the odd long shot. The back four of Bradders Whitey, Johnno and Bonner linked up well and didn’t allow the home team any opportunities. An Ollie Clements free kick and Hutchings header were all the visitors could manage 1st half but both were just off target. Half time 0 – 0.
The 2nd half was just started when the Redskins took the lead against the run of play with a wonder goal . Cory Thomas-Barker (Coz) had just crossed the half way line with the ball at his feet when he spotted the Wells keeper way of his line. He took one more step toward goal and unleashed a shot that sailed high into the night before dropping in just under the bar. With Wells in shock the Redskins could have gone 2 up when Dan Ferguson won a tackle 25 yds out and the ball broke to Jack Hutchings who was in on goal. Jack who has been so reliable in this situation but saw his shot blocked by the advancing goalkeeper. From here on Wells took control and were soon back on level term when the ball was square to the no 8 who’s powerful shot looked to be saved by James Williams only for it to squirm under him and just crossed the line. 1 all soon became 2 – 1 when Whitey lunged at no 9 who went down very easily but was awarded a penalty and picked himself up to score from the spot. 2 quickly became 3 and then 4 just before the end with a fine strike from 9 and a tap in at the far post for 10. 4 -1 certainly flattered Wells but the boys were 2nd best on the night.
Apologies for the lack of Wells City players names, we hope to amend this in the near future.
