Scole United fc 4 v 1 Watton United fc

This week Scole welcomed Watton United to Ransome Avenue looking to complete the double over the Breckland side and keep the pressure on the teams above them in Division One. With injuries and availability issues, Chris Collins-Reed was drafted into the back four and Reece Lanchester made his return. Added to the injury list containing Ben Buckmaster & Luke Hunt was influential midfielder Ashley Baxter! However the welcome return to the technical area of assistant manager Alan Boulter after a 5 week absence due to illness was a boost to morale.
The game kicked off as quite a scrappy affair and it took Scole several minutes to get settled into any sort of rhythm. Some good possession ensued and flying wingers James Harrison & Dave Coleman began to worry their full backs with the threat of their pace. A move down the right hand side involving Harrison ended up at busy striker Connor Kerry's feet who in turn layed the ball back to on rushing left back Lawrence Brown who drilled the ball in to give Scole the lead. Unfortunately Scole could not capitalise and they got dragged down into the scrappy bitty sort of game that Watton wanted. Kerry and his strike partner both had efforts that hit the woodwork but it was Watton who bothered the scorers next with an untidy equaliser in the 33rd minute. The only other incident of note was shortly afterwards when young referee relieved the Watton linesman of his duties following a disagreement between them both. This angered the already hostile and aggressive Watton management team and their gaggle of supporters congregated around the dug outs resulting in some interesting comments being traded between the two benches for the remainder of the game!
At half-time Scole were reminded about their quality and urged not to fall into the trap that Watton had set and stated the second half on the front foot. Smith scored his 1st goal for Scole after 2 minutes following up a Chris Collins-Reed saved effort to retain the lead. Watton mustered a little and Brown had to clear off his own goal- line on 50 minutes but after that it was all Scole. Midfield pairing Ben Norton-Hugman and Alex Blakely began control the game. Collins-Reed finally got his goal from a Blakely corner to make it 3-1 and kill any resistance off . Goalof the game came in the dying minutes when Smith put Blakely away for a lovely solo effort rounding the keeper with ease following a strong burst through the Watton defence.
A good win that moves Scole up into 5th place and with other results going their way in the other games the promotion race is very very tight and Scole in right there in the mix.
Next Week is another home game against Cromer Town Fc. 14:00 kick off.
