"Scole finally get the win their performances deserve..."
By Alan Boulter
Scole United fc 1 v 0 Wroxham Reserves fc
Scole finally gained the 3 points that their recent performances have deserved by defeating a talented & spirited young Wroxham Reserves side.
Despite the now usual enforced personnel changes Scole were lifted by the return of midfield leader Ben Norton-Hugman and the introduction on the sidelines as Assistant Manager of former player Ed Hipperson to give caretaker Alan Boulter a much appreciated helping hand.
With the injury to skipper Jordan Balls keeping him on the bench the armband went to centre half Lee Tricker who alongside fellow warrior Adam Solley led his defence to a hard fought clean sheet. Up front, young striker Kieran Manning was unavailable leaving veteran Tom Dade ploughing a lone furrow against his young opponents. It was winger Joe Hooton who was the star of the show though. His close control and blistering pace causing mayhem to the Yachtsmens defence. There wasn't any respite on the other flank with Callum Bray also forcing the away side to double up on him. The winning goal came following excellent work from sub Balls who won the ball and set Hooton free. His mazy run saw him somehow break away from his markers and cross into the box for big Jimmy Dunkinson to cleanly finish past former Scole youth goalkeeper Connor Milligan. Scole played the game out very professionally to the delight of the decent size crowd to secure their 1st win of 2019 and once again show off their new found battling team spirit.
