Scole Vets continue winning run

Fourth clean sheet in a row for Scole

Scole Vets welcomed Wensum Albion Old Boys to Ransome Avenue in what was expected to be a tough encounter. The reverse fixture had ended 2-2, but the hosts have been more impressive with a changed formation. With Brian Midwinter and Jonathan Hanner missing, there was a change in personnel into the 3-5-2 system, but a welcome return for strikers Lincoln and Goreham.

Early encounters were even, with Scole struggling to stick to their formation, and the two wing backs not able to get forward. Though during the early exchanges, no clear cut chances were created. On 15 minutes a delay ensued as a 50-50 challenge saw ine of the visitors break their leg. After a 30 minute break for the ambulance, play resumed, and it was all one-way traffic for the hosts. Lincoln drew a free kick 20 yards out which Simon Bartram rattled home. Lincoln then found the score sheet with a good finish. Lincoln was then pulled down in the box, though keeper Bartram missed the resultant spot kick. Scole still maintained the upper hand, leading 2-0 at the break.

The second half saw Scole maintain superiority and drive home their advantage. Though the pitch was hard a bobbly, Scole managed to cut through the opposition and very soon Lincoln completed his hat-trick. Goreham was withdrawn for Barrett, who added some impetus in chasing down the visitors defence, who still tried to play out form the back. Ruddock then replaced Partridge, who had run out of steam, having slotted well into the midfield trio. With ten minutes left, Lincoln added his fourth and Scole's fifth, to seal a fine win. Powell's card the only black mark on another solid team performance.

Wensum Albion must be congratulated for carrying on after their player's serious injury, and pressed until the end, without reward. We hope the injury is not as bad as it first appeared and wish him a speedy recovery.
