Mens 1 V Wakefield 3

Mens 1 V Wakefield 3

Acomb mens 1 finished their season in fine style against Wakefield 3 who were just above them in league division 2 with a 3-2 win despite missing through injury to skipper Matt Dickenson and central defender Pete Hilton. In a totally rearranged set up with the match being a dead rubber the tangerines went for the fun side and swapped the attack and defence. Acomb started well with some intrinsic passing and were rewarded when David Bell neatly deflected a pass from James Graham-Brown. The visitors struck almost immediately despite the defensive work of Paul Wright and Stuart Baxter. After the turn round the visitor pressed hard and keeper Craig Brown save well on a couple of circumstances but the make shift offense led by Baz Whitfield kept the visitors at bay. The tangerines enjoyed some good possession and intrinsic passing with Simon Theaker, Ryan Smith and Graham-Brown linking with the novice forward line and they were rewarded with a second strike from David Bell. Almost immediately Wakefield squeezed in an equaliser but the home side on the break had further chances to secure the points but had to wait for Nick Linfoot to neatly tap in the third to secure all three points and maintain the tangerines 7 point advantage over relegated City of York 5.
