Burnham Utd 3 Wrington Redhill 1 

Following last weeks excellent performance this week was a complete let down for the faithful supporters braving the elements on the trip to Burnham United.
Although playing into a gale force wind Wrington Redhill started brightly and took an early lead. George Fake picked up a superb through ball from Dan Ferguson and calmly slotting the ball past keeper Ashley Harrison.
Despite this early breakthrough, for the next seventy minutes the team was second to every ball and could not keep possession of the ball with many unforced stray passes being gifted to their hosts. This allowed Burnham to take full control of the game with no surprise when they equalised midway through the half and then took the lead just before the interval, with Harry Hamblin’s free kick finding its way into the net despite James Williams scrambling effort to keep it out.
The second half did not start well with Wrington Redhill failing to clear the ball from a long-range free kick which drifted high into the box. There were a number of failed attempts to clear the ball which was finally bundled across the line increasing the lead to 3-1.
It wasn’t until the last ten minutes that the visitors rallied showing anything like what they can produce, and Burnham were grateful to Harrison doing well to save efforts from Cory Thomas-Barker and Jordon Bonner when perhaps a point might have been salvaged.
Wrington Redhill ended up with what they deserved from a lacklustre performance and will need to increase their performance and attitude for next week’s cup fixture against Wells City Reserves at The Recreation Field with a 2.00pm kick off.
