"Injury hit Scole beaten by high flying Wymondham Town"

Wymondham Town 3 v 0 Scole United

For their opening fixture of 2018 Scole faced a daunting trip to title favourites Wymondham Town's King's Meadow ground. With no fewer than 6 regular starters missing including skipper Ben Norton-Hugman & big new signing Alex Blakeley. So it was a young an rather inexperienced but nonetheless strong squad that took to the field against a Town side that had only previously lost just once in the league this season. Scole in fact made a half decent start against their hosts and almost took the lead following a passage of play that included 4 corners on the bounce culminating in a Ashley Baxter corner from the left being hooked back into the danger zone by Brad Hunt for Connor Kerry's brave header being cleared off the line to the edge of the box where Callum Olpin caught it on the half-volley only to once more be blocked on the goal line! However Wymondham got the break when they scored the opener following a left wing cross that wrong footed Reece Lanchester and as the youngster tried to clear his kick was deflected off the striker over Ben Buckmaster's head for a scrappy undeserved goal. Their second was anything but scrappy though when highly rated centre forward Liam Moriaty, recently returned to the club from Bostik League Norwich Utd, broke through the Scole defence and showed a sublime finish chipping Buckmaster. This brought about a tactical change for Scole with Manager Jon Abbott bringing himself on to direct matters from the centre of the park. Full Back Ollie Boardman was the unfortunate victim of this tactical change his removal bearing no reflection of his performance in an unusual left back berth. Abbott's appearance had the desired effect and Scole settled but owed thanks to Buckmaster on 2 further occasions in the 1st half for keeping out good efforts from the home side.
Scole rallied in the second half and could have pulled one back when a towering Tom Green header rebounded the wrong way off the far post with the Wymondham defence and keeper mere bystanders. However Scole paid for pushing on to much when Wymondham got a third and sowed the game up in the 73rd minute with a good shot from their right winger found the top corner. A deserved win for Wymondham but one hopes that with a full squad to choose from Scole will turn the result for the home tie against this opponent?
Next week the 1st team are away at North Walsham Town 14:00 kick off.
