Wendron 0 Foxhole 2

Saturday 21st February 2009

Wendron had the better of a largely uneventful first half as Foxhole, playing into a stiff breeze, found it hard going against a combative home team, for whom the central midfield partnership of Hodson and Searle crashed into numerous challenges, while the ball-playing giant centre-half Newbury looked particularly accomplished. However, Ryan Holland was only once called into serious action when he tipped over Newbury's 24th minute free-kick after Searle was upended by Warne, as the Foxes managed to successfully re-organise after early injuries to May and then his replacement at right-back, Prince.

Within a minute of the restart Butler had twice gone close before the visitors opened the scoring after 75 seconds when Rickard's cross from the right was coolly finished by the unmarked Griffin while Barber lay prostrate. Right-back was clearly a jinxed position, and Hodson's enforced redeployment there severely reduced his effectiveness. Scoffin twice denied Griffin and then had to react smartly to field Rickard's volley, while Nicholls' lob landed on top of the bar before Rickard sealed the points from close range after Newbury failed to defend Holland's long drop-kick. Bromley and Nicholls may each have extended the lead, while Wendron's frustration at their inability to capitalise on their early pressure boiled over with Blatch's caution for dissent and Searle's late dismissal for a wild lunge at Friendship which prompted a further booking Newbury's protests.
