'Scole grab a battling away point at Hellesdon'


Hellesdon Fc 1 v 1 Scole United Fc

In what was a thankfully quiet week off the pitch, Scole travelled to Hellesdon in good spirits. This was despite missing flying winger Joe Hooton & former skipper Jordan Balls, youngsters Kieran Manning & Lawrence Brown returned and Callum Boulter & George Reeder were called up from the reserves with Zac Turner going the other way.
So it was still a good strong squad that went out to battle the strong winds as well as the opposition. Scole faced the elements in the 1st half and knew they would be in for a battle against an in form side who had only lost 1 out of the last 7 fixtures. The game started tentatively with both sides getting used to the conditions when in the 5th minute young full back Joe Andrews got sucked into a rash challenge in the penalty area by the wily Hellsdon striker. Having converted the resultant spot kick, the home side piled the pressure on but Scole resolutely defended and had chances themselves as they got to grips with game. Midfielder Jimmy Dunkinson picked up a knock and was replaced by Dan Betts on 35 minutes and the score remained the same until the interval.
Following a slight tactical change, Scole came out on a charge in the second half. With the wind at their backs they pushed Hellesdon back into their own half. Callum Bray set the tone with a blistering run and shot that just went past the far post. The equaliser came when centre back Lee Tricker played a great through ball with the outside of his foot up to striker Tom Dade. Dade controlled the ball on the edge of the box and cut inside to unleash a right footed shot that curled the ball inside the far post.
Young Callum Boulter replaced the scorer shortly afterwards for his first senior appearance of the season and George Reeder came on towards the end. Scole were unfortunate not to win when a classic bullet headed goal from Adam Solley was disallowed for a disputed offside and Lee Tricker put an effort over from 6 yards in injury time following a good back post header from Joe Andrews picking up a Ben Norton-Hugman free kick.
So a well earned point on the road but it speaks volumes how far this team has come following the upheaval it has faced that there was mainly disappointment that this was 2 points lost rather than 1 point gained
Player of the Match (picked by Gary Oakshot): Tom Dade worked hard upfront and sealed the point with an outstanding goal.
Next game: Saturday 16/02/19 - Away at Mattishall 14:30 kick off.
