The lads travelled to Stockwood to face top of the table Cutter’s Friday.
The game kicked off and on 5 mintes a long ball was chased into the box by Neil Andow who managed to get between two defenders, Andow was bundled over and the referee pointed to the spot.
Jake Murray stepped up and despite the keeper going the right way Murray slotted the ball home.
The game restated and Murray received the ball near the touchline where he was ‘wiped out’ by the Cutter’s centre forward who received a yellow card. This was to set the tone for an overly physical match that the referee clearly found difficulty in controlling.
On 25 minutes a ball was crossed into the Wrington Box which the keeper decided to come and claim. Unfortunately he was unable to hold the ball that spilled to the Cutter’s forward who smashed the ball into an empty net.
The game continued with the number of bookings rising steadily.
Wrington were looking the more threatening as the half came to an end with Graham Cheeseman leading the line magnificently.
The game restarted and half chances fell the Wrington way with the Cutter’s Keeper making a good save from a Cheeseman header.
The lads were then caught with a sucker punch after the back line were caught under a long clearance from the Cutters keeper which allowed the Cutters forward to wrestled himself into a position where he was able shoot past the Wrington Keeper.
The half continue with Wrington well in the game. On 80 minutes Wrington won a corner. Simon Riggs crossed and Jake Murray headed the ball towards goal. Sub Chris Gale stopped the ball on the six yard line, swibveled and placed his shot into the bottom right of the net
Then from the restart another long ball was punted towards the Wrington goal that the keeper came to collect, he unfortunately fumbled the ball with it dropping to the Cutter’s forward who tapped the ball into an empty net.
The game continued with the Cutter’s centre back being sent off and the Cutters midfield player lucky to escape a second booking for a blatant push on Chris Holland.
The game ended 3-2 with both sides knowing they had been in a game.
Wrington can feel unlucky that they came away with nothing form the game. Still if they perform like they did at Cutter’s they will win far more than they lose
MOM – Graham Cheeseman – Simply MAGNIFICENT
