Last Gasp Oggy Galling for Gorleston

Another win in more dramatic circumstances meant four wins on the bounce for a buoyant Wroxham side who are proving to be a resilient bunch with plenty of character. Trailing 2 – 0 on 35 minutes and denying Gorleston a third win with a fine penalty save from Viner the Yachtsmen were looking decidedly sea sick despite having enjoyed the majority of possession and arguably the better chances. Perhaps it was that belief that kept them going in an enthralling second half that saw the visitors sitting so deep at times it looked they were making their way back to the seaside before the job was done.

Parke and Potters men are nothing if not durable these days having seen late equalisers at Clacton and Walsham Le willows and taking the best part of two hours to finally break down an obdurate CBS and the calm ways they went about their jobs in the second period showed a team maturing as the season progresses.   The recent additions of former Green Deeks and prolific Pledger was proof of the team’s ability get a few goals back and scatter a few Gorleston pigeons.


Deeks it was who reduced the arrears with a towering header from a corner but the Wroxham faithful had to wait until the 87 minute fro the equaliser as Swatman swatted a dropping ball and the deflection did the rest. A point might have seemed enough but the Yachtsmen scenting the Green were all played out went for it drawing a couple of good saves before Swatman tried a flipped ball into the area with time up and a desperate clearing header succeeded in clearing only the Gorleston keeper. Que pandemonium in the dugout and around Trafford Park. Despite a last ditch break from Gorleston Thwarted by Viner the Yachtsmen moved to joint second with a well earned win.
