First team unlucky

First team lose as Beccles get promoted

Scole could not quite get over the line with something from this game that from effort alone certainly deserved something facing a Beccles team on a roll and playing their last game of the season requiring a win to be certain of promotion and still a possibility of winning the league.

Scole started strongly with Beccles showing signs of nerves and were struggling to get any rhythm together as Scole battled from the start. Goal chances were at a premium for both sides but it was Beccles who had the upper hand in territory but the back four of James Platt, Matt Anderson, Tom Davey and Conor Jamieson were standing strong.

Scole forced a couple of corners and with the strong breeze playing a factor Will Gouldings corner went directly into the goal to put Scole in front. Beccles responded and and pushed Scole back into their own half for the last 10 minutes but without creating.

The home team knew that they had to put as much effort if not more into the second half as Beccles were going to xome dtrong and this proved right as Beccles pushed forward and within 5 minutes were level as a forward cut in from the left and struck a tremendous shot past Ben Buckmaster's despairing dive. Scole continued to battle to try to hold onto a point and were not able to test the visiting keeper again as they ran out of strength on the edge of the Beccles penalty box. Unfortunately Beccles had their tails up and were looking the most likely to get a winner, that goal came with 15 minutes left as their winger got to the byline and his cross was met by an incoming forward who tucked home in front of goal. Scole could not find a way back into the game to try and grab a point.

The large Beccles contingent were in raptures as they confirmed promotion, so congratulations and good luck to them for next season.

A hard working performance from Scole that deserved to reap a point and they go into their last 3 games knowing that they need 3 point to be certain to stay in the division.

Man of the match: Tom Moose davey had a great gaem at centre half and showed they he is capable of making his name their for the first team but this week goes to Matt Anderson for his all round superb attitude and covering.
