Old Newton v Barham Athletic
By Philip Piper
FIRST TEAM NEWS......
After three weeks off we finally got back on the pitch last week against Barham. Knowing we were being presented with the trophy after the game lads where in good mood and it gave me the chance to bring some young lads in to have the experience.
Barham started the game looking to spoil the party and Pav had to be alert and make some fine saves. We didn’t really get going in the first half and Barham took advantage with a well taken goal from Sam Perry.
At half time the lads where a little disappointed but after a few words came out a completely different side and forced Barham back .
Austin soon got us back on level terms with his trade mark goal with a left footed shot outside the box.
Not long after a great ball into the box saw Jordi Scott Webb getting last touch to put us in front. To close the scoring a well taken goal from Rampz was smashed into the roof of the net, a great way to finish and celebrate after the game .
It’s been a great season for the club over all with us winning the league the Reserves getting to Portman Road and the A-Team holding their own in their first season back, a credit to all the managers and all involved.
This week we welcome Sporting who need to win to have any chance of going up. Presentation night will follow the game so more good time ahead.
MOTM last week went to Jordi Scott Webb, well done bud!
