Match Report

Chilt went tentatively into this match with a much changed squad. Missing were regulars Matt Dann, Scott Wolters, Paul McCafferty, Ryan De Gruchy, Josh Burns and Charlie Monaghan.

So into the squad came WCFC stalwart Lorne Andrews, Jon Tolson and Jordan Price from the reserve team. New signing Tom Rickman made his debut. Craig Dawson started in goal.

Southwater started the much brighter team and put Chilt under sustained pressure for the opening 20 minutes, and they also had a good penalty appeal waved away by the referee. However, the game changed in an instant when Gary Weedon stole the ball of the Southwater centre half who then hauled him down inside the area. A definite penalty and Craig Pulling calmly slotted home the pen.

Gary Weedon then grabbed the second goal of the game with a composed finish after being played through by Craig Pulling.

H-T 2-0.

Southwater played very well in the opening 10 minutes of the second half but again they could find no way past excellent West Chilt defence. Craig Dawson also pulled off one good stop to keep the score at 2-0.
Weldon then scored again with another great finish after being played in by Ash Hills. The fourth goal was a tremendous goal, with a free kick routine being executed superbly by Scott Pulling and Gary Weedon. Weedon applied another fine finish. The final goal of the game was a great run and finish by Ash Hills, who has been a revelation on the wing for Chilt since signing in the close season.

Special mention has to go to the three reserve team players, Lorne Andrews, John Tolson & Jordan Price who between them shared the left midfield role, all playing their part in an excellent victory.

Also Tom RIckman was excellent in centre midfield and worked tirelessly for the whole 90 minutes.

WCFC manager Keith Tomsett commented that "in all my years l have not seen a better Chilt counter-attacking display".

Scorers: Craig Pulling (pen), Gary Weedon 3, Ash Hills.
MoM: Gary Weedon.
