In the Surrey League…

Another end to end game in the Surrey League this week saw Wokingham capitalise on the very few chances they were given in the first half. It all started when Wokingham’s front man, Henry Mott, was slipped through down the middle and held his nerve to slot it into the bottom corner calmly under pressure. Next on the score sheet was Ballard, who thumped in a rocket of a shot from 25 yards which crashed off the bar and over the line. Wokingham’s front 4 were in fine form in the closing stages of the first half, as Alfie Edmonds produced a fantastic bit of skill to put the ball through his opponents legs on the half way line, gallop down the touch line and whip in a lovely ball for Mott to volley into the top corner from the edge of the box. The perfect technique left the supporters silenced – a debatable winner for goal of the season so far without doubt.


The second half continued to be a very open affair with both sides looking dangerous on the attack. Wokingham’s Archie Athey was the new attacking weapon from right back and he continued to cause problems for the home side. The fourth goal started in the middle of the park with Charlie Cooke and made its way across the middle, around the back four, down the left and into the box when it was once again slotted home by Henry Mott. A fine team goal which saw almost every player touch the ball. The game was wrapped up with a beautiful placed free-kick by Hugo Domingos late on in the game as Wokingham came away 5-0 victors. Quainton at the heart of the defence was over the moon with a long awaited clean sheet.
