Bungay Town Vets 5 Norton Athletic Vets 0
Disappointing result to end the season
Norton took on Bungay Vets away in their last fixture of a tough season. A nice change to have an evening kick-off despite the hard dry ground!
Norton competed well in the early stages, but with Bungay strikers regularly dropping deep, Norton weren’t keeping hold of the ball as well as the home team.
Bungay broke the deadlock first with some good work down their right and flooding the box for a close range finish.
Then not long after a laps in concentration by Aaron H saw his pass intercepted by the Bungay striker, who ran through to finish his 1 on 1 well.
Norton continued to still compete, and got into so promising positions. Through pass by Aaron H to Danny H almost ended in a goal scoring opportunity. A speculative effort from Nigel DS from 40 yards which tested the keeper. Along with multiple moves down the wings that unfortunately didn’t end with the quality of cross that the move deserved.
Second half was a different story, and Bungay grew in confidence along with their possession and Norton grew tired and flat footed. Bungay took advantage and duly scored another 3 to finish of the game, leaving Norton chasing lost causes and only creating only a few chances again ending failing in the final third.
Norton well beaten, but some good lessons learned for next season.
