Yachtsmen awayday not one for the scrapbook

cropped-wfc-logo.pngWroxham went into this game on a run of six straight league victories stretching back to the end of September and Histon away.

On Wednesday night the Yachtsmen had shown tenacity and determination to win away at Woodbridge, however neither of these traits were in much evidence at Whitton on Saturday.

The game started with Wroxham playing their usual passing game but for all the football, there wasn’t an endpoint to show.

On 20 minutes, there was a shout for a Wroxham penalty but the referee felt the defender had got his foot to the ball and indicated a corner only.

In the 40th minute, the home side took advantage of the man advantage as Adam Plumstead was off the pitch following a clash of heads and receiving treatment. George Macrae was forced to come out to concede a corner as the home team pressed. From that corner, Whitton took the lead. The ball wasn’t cleared by the Wroxham defence and after some pinball in the area, it fell to the feet of Josh Stevens. He was able to pass it into the back of the net.

Within 3 minutes, Whitton had made it 2-0. A free kick was conceded on the edge of the Wroxham area. George Macrae did well to get down low but could only push it back out and the incoming Jamie Cole fired into the empty net.

The second half was a tight affair and apart from a blocked Harley Black shot from a Bond cross, there was little action of note. Macrae kept the score at two with a good save from George Mrozek. Jordan Southgate tried to change matters by introducing Wilkinson, Taylor and the returning Joe Manning but it was a day to forget for the Yachtsmen.
