Defeat 2 games in a row

Beaten by the unbeaten

With the arrival of the unbeaten North Norfolk as well as the rain spirits were surprisingly high mainly due to having a squad of 14 players. With the return of the Harris brothers, Ayres and the first appearance of Jamie Higginbottom in a Railway shirt the team started with confidence. With North Norfolk on the back foot for most of the half Railway done everything right apart from score. The defence of Guy, Ward, Hall and mortimer looked strong and moved the ball around well, never really feeling the pressure. The midfield which included Ross K, Wilkinson, Allen, Ayres and Croft dominated the game and joined the attack of Berry and Daniels. The best chance of the half fell to Allen who used his pace to drive the back line taking on and beating 3 defenders rounding the keeper and what should have come next should have been a goal but it never made it between the posts. The second half started the same as the first but again Railway failed to hit the target again. The first goal came when North Norfolk capitalised on a mistake by the Railway defence. Wilkinson and Berry rallied their troops and Ayres stepped in and raised the spirits with some strong defence leaving players in his wake. Railway were then caught on the break to concede the second, the third and the forth. Railway showed their never give up never give in attitude and with some great passing Daniels found himself in the D with the keeper to beat, with what some call a pass he called a shot which fell to wilkinson who touched the ball home.

Thanks to the match report writer and man of the match Jamie Ayres.
