Report by Nigel Westhorp


This felt like a match that Potton had lost a golden opportunity to secure three points instead of gaining just one, but Wembley could have stolen all the points with virtually the last kick of the match.

Potton had to shuffle the side because of injuries and unavailability. Potton started slowly and were wide open at the back with first of all Ejimsor progressing down the left side and his dangerous centre eluded everyone. Then Walker made his way down the right and his low centre was turned into the net by Ebunine inside the six yard box to give Wembley the lead in the 4h minute. New signing Andrew Oposu made a good run through the middle but was well tackled before he could shoot. At the other end Ogunsola worked his way through but shot wide and twice Irish had to be alert to save at the feet of Wembley forwards.. Willis had to go off for Potton with a leg injury which meant reorganising the side again.

Potton were gradually working their way back into the game with a good cross by Slama collected by the keeper and then Slama saw his effort blocked. After a good run by OPosu Slama fired his shot across the goal and then Wilson drove his cross across the goal but no one was on hand to convert. Just before half-time Ebunine saw his header go narrowly wide.

HT 0-1

Potton started the second half in a much more determined fashion. Andrews saw his shot held by the keeper before Wilson saw his centre bounce to safety off the cross bar. In the 52nd minute a terrific cross field pass from Rafe Goodman found Slama who volleyed the ball home to equalise for Potton. Jordan Goodman shot well wide from distance and Oposu saw his free kick sail over the cross bar. Lewis played the ball to Slama whose shot was wide. With about 15 minutes to go Rafe Goodman was booked for a foul, showed a yellow card and then said something to the referee who promptly sent him to the sin bin.

Slama was unlucky to see his 25 yard shot from a free kick hit the post with the keeper well beaten. In a rare Wembley attack Tyrer made a good long run without being tackled by a Potton defender and shot wide. In the closing minutes Potton were on the attack and as Slama was about to shoot the ball was taken off him and in a very quick Wembley counter attack the ball was played to Ribiero-Matens who was clear on goal but he shot well over the bar with what was about the last kick of the match. FT 1-1

Potton United: Sam Irish, Bernard Goodman, Callum Wilson, Oli Esurouso, Sam Willis (Dequane Wilson Braithwaite), Ieuan Evans, Tashriq Andrews Natyhan Mullings), Rafe Goodman, Andrew Oposu, Ibrahim Camara, Jordan Slama (Niall Jones)

On Friday the First Team should have been playing away to Eynesbury Rovers but they have a booking in their clubhouse so the match had to be cancelled. ON Tuesday 19 November the First Team entertain Baldock Town in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division.
