Hutton 1 Wrington Redhill 1
After achieving good results at Clevedon Utd and Clutton Wrington Redhill continued their pre-season with another away trip, this time facing a very competitive Hutton side.
Manager Leigh White had a wealth of options with a full enthusiastic squad to pick from. Hutton started the brighter and after 10 minutes took the lead after some sloppy defending by the visitors , a good ball over the top which was calmly put away past keeper James Williams.
Wrington Redhill were given a wake up call with Hutton letting them know they were in for a tough game, skipper Ethan Johnson and veteran Chris Bradley got a hold of the defence and started getting them back in to the game. On 15 minutes winger Ethan Williams got himself one on one with the Hutton full back and with a few step overs leaving the defender in his wake he crossed the ball to striker George Fake who just managed to get his nose on the end of the cross and direct it in.
The game then settled into an entertaining end to end affair with both teams creating chances. Wrington Redhill’s Ryan Pugh had to come off due to injury and was replaced by Rory Thomas, who sat in nicely at left back with Matt Walsh on the right. Manager Leigh White certainly seems to want to lead from the front and he along with Ollie Clements, Joe Creese and Reece Ferguson began to take hold of the game.
After 45 minutes Wrington made some changes with Sam Harvey, Dan Ferguson, Callum Briggs, Chris Holland and Si Hewish coming on.
Hutton created some good chances in the 2nd half and were a real test for Wrington to contain. Harvey and Holland looked lively in midfield with Briggs and Ferguson looking dominant at the back. Hewish rattled in some challenges which appeared to spur Wrington on to dominate the last 15 minutes of the game. As they began to look their usual selves.
The game finished 1-1 which was a fair result.
Next week Wrington travel to Glastonbury for another tough game.
