A good win for Wadebridge after last saturday's disappointment at Saltash &

the game was a great advert for ECPL & credit must go to both teams. :)

Launceston played their part in a very entertaining game. :c:

It was obvious from the start that both teams were intent on playing attacking football &

it was slightly against the run of play that the home side took the lead after Tom Wood was held in the area

and Jamie Sellwood converted the resultant penalty. This seemed to settle the home side & gradually they began to take control of the match creating a number of scoring opportunities. The Wadebridge midfield of Ben Beesley, Tom Wood, Lee Cameron & Andy Harris were all working extremely hard too match their opponents work rate. Launceston are not top of the league for no reason & were always in the game but the home defense, marshalled by Captain, Chris Ferrett, restricted them to shooting from distance.

On a cold night at Bodieve Park there was plenty of action to keep the sparse crowd entertained.

Half-time 1-0

The home side came out for the second half fully expecting Launceston to come at them but Wadebridge dominated for the first 10-15 minutes of the second period without adding to their lead. Eventually Mike Retter got the better of the Launceston centre half & found himself one on one with the keeper, who he beat with an excellent finish. 5 minutes late Retter added to his goal tally with a similar finish to his first after good work from his striking partner Adam Jobe. The goal of the night came 10 minutes later when Andy Harris, cutting in from the right, beat 2 players and hit an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.

Wadebridge continued to create chances & could have increased their lead but Launceston never gave in and continued to pose a threat on the break & they did create a few chances of their own. They could have easily have pulled one back after the home keeper, Jimmy Vernon pushed a shot onto the bar & from the rebound the Launceston forward thought he must score only for Nick Knight too some how play the ball onto the underside of his own crossbar & the ball was eventually cleared. The away side finally pulled a goal back with an unstoppable free kick from 20 yards out. Not sure who struck the free kick but it was an excellent strike giving the home keeper no chance. This unerved the home side & Launceston had a period of play where they could have pulled another goal back but Wadebridge weathered the storm.

With 10 minutes to go the home side introduced Jacob Nichol from the U 16's to the fray and Ali Feasey, from the 3rd team, for his ECPL debut and both showed they will be playing more regularly at this level.

For me every WTFC player did really well but if I had to give a Man of the Match award then Adam Jobe just edged it from Andy Harris & Chris Ferrett. Jobeys work rate was excellent and once he's match fit he will only get better.

All in all a cracking game of football for the supporters. :drink:

Not sure how both managers viewed it? Maybe too open for their liking!

I'm sure come the end of the season Launceston will be there or thereabouts.

As for Wadebridge, with the addition of a couple more quality players to the squad, we will be a side to match anyone in the league and maybe cause one or two more 'surprises' . We need to find some consistency in our league form. Its a very young side & its certainly a 'work in progress'.

Good luck to Launceston for the rest of the season. :clapper:

Very good match report New Forset............... I take it you were at the game??

A very good win for Wadebridge who showed last night that they can compete with the big guns in the ECPL league.

Not forgetting that Wadebridge played with make shift defender who is a striker by trade Josh Insley who played centre half with Jamie Selwood and both were superb. Well the whole team played well but i think it is important to highlight Josh....

And i agree a great strike by this Andy Harris character !!haha

We actually had two first team players in the team last night as Lee Cameron who is a first team squad player also played, however Launceston also played some first teamers. The game was a great advert for ECPL football, played in a great spirit, and the Launceston coaching staff were magnanamus in defeat.

This is a building season for The Bridgers and we had sevral players involved last night who were Under 18. But I agree with Harris that both Josh and Sellars were superb in the centre of defence, but our attacking players, including Harris gave the visiting defence a difficult evening. Consistency is the aim now, as we try to consolidate our league position.
