Wickham Market FC v Old Newton United FC

Another 3 Points on the road

Last week was another cold and bright Saturday, this time we travelled to Wickham Market not knowing what to expect with their team changing a lot. They are always hard to beat on their own ground, however, we went there off the back of some good results and I’m now starting to see the lads come together and play like a team. It’s taken a few months but I had to expect that when putting a new team together.
So into the game and it started at a fast pace with Wickham having a lot of the ball but not really troubling us in final third. We could of been 3-0 up in ten minutes, Luke Austin going through one on one with the ball hitting a divot which then bounced up on to his knee, good chance but out of his hands, then Alex had good chance but couldn’t connect and then Luke again with one on one and Wickham keeper making a good save. The goal came about 15 mins in, a great corner from Jack found Robbo who made a great run into the box to head into the far corner, this gave Robbo some confidence and ran the right back ragged for rest of the game. Our second goal came from a ball over the top, Alex timed a decent run to knock ball round the keeper and find the bottom corner . Wickham still had plenty of the ball but again didn’t really test Stacey in goal, so at half time 2-0 Newton .

The second half started pretty much like the First, Newton boys working hard when they didn’t have the ball and putting pressure on Wickham when they were trying to play. The reward came as Alex put pressure on the centre half resulting in him going through on goal to be brought down for a penalty. Luke then stepped up to put it in the bottom corner. The Wickham keeper was very unlucky! This took a bit out of Wickham and chances went a miss from Luke, Baxter & Robbo. The lads kept going and ten minutes from the end Alex got his second, round the keeper again, to which I thought he had gone too wide but he found the far corner, a really good finish! So another 4-0 which keeps the pressure on the teams around us, we are half way through so a lot can change!

MOTM went to Robbo, a few young players could learn something from this lad, he waited his turn on the bench for a few weeks, never moaned, got his chance and took it with both hands, a real credit mate.

So onto this week and we welcome Mendlesham, a good bunch of lads who I’ve got a lot time for. With both the First’s and Reserves playing respective fixtures against our neighbours we will all be getting together in the club for a few drinks after.
Hope everyone has a good Christmas and Happy New Year!
