Wrington Redhill reserves 2 Banwell reserves 1.
With several Star players back,playing with the elements against Banwell who have started slowly in the league, Wrington expected to start well but in fact struggled to get into the game. By playing three in midfield with Will Hall and Drey Norsworthy particularly prominent, the visitors competed all over the pitch and frustrated the home side. In a strangely lack lustre first half performance, too many passes went astray and as a result Banwell grew in confidence and started to create chances of their own. Drey Norsworthy made several raids down the right wing resulting in a Clark header that hit the crossbar and a smart finish from Abraham to put Banwell in the lead. In reply Tommy Johnson flashed a driven shot just wide from a Valle flick on which in truth was Wringtons only effort in the first half.
It took a rocket from Captain Burnett and a tactical switch from coach Gallacher at half time to spark Wrington into life. Matching up numbers in midfield, it was now Chris Holland and Paul Faulkner who controlled the game and Wrington were on the front foot. Johnson spun away from a Curtis throw in and sweetly struck his shot into the top corner to level the scores. It was also Curtis who found space down the left before his cut back was met first time by Marshall whose low shot found the bottom corner. The game now settled into a close fought competitive match but the chances that did come fell Wrington’s way. You can always rely on Flynn to chase and Harry the defence, forcing A mistake which left him with an open goal but he rolled the ball agonising onto the post. Wrington were relieved to recover from their poor start and the win takes then to second in the league but they will need to play better next week with the local derby against Congresbury.
