Each week we plan to cover a featured game from across our divisions.
First half of this game was two sides showing great defensive displays. Despite this, both teams had opportunities Hasbeens' Jake Brice hitting the bar from twenty yards and the rebound should have been put in the back of the net. Dan Slater was put through with a ball over the top, Owen Franklin the Hasbeens' keeper was quick of his line and made a great interception outside of his box, he had to be careful though what made the challenge so important.
In the second half Horsford started well and were pressing for the opener. The pressure was building and a defensive mix up led to the 1st goal with an easy tap in for Sam Potts. Moments later Dan Slater added a second with an excellent finish from outside of the box. Hasbeens were creating chances and trying to get back in the game but Horsford hit them on the break with Ryan Garvey making it 3-0 and this is how it finished.
Hasbeens’ Owen Franklin and Scott Buest played well but Horsford’s Callum Rowe was the Man of the Match. Referee Richard Daniels was a commanding presence throughout the game and managed the game very well. '
This game was a very entertaining encounter, end to end from the start until the final whistle. Bradenham and Mattishall took an early lead through Brandon King, corner came over and fell to Brandon 12 yards out and this was put into the roof of the net. Tom Reed extended the visitor's lead moments later 2-0.
Waterloo replied with a quick fire double firstly through Jake Steward and then Thomas Cain. Bradenham and Mattishall made it 3-2 with Brandon King with a delicate lob and Rafa Jaou (the midfield Maestro) added the fourth with a wonderful finish.
Waterloo showed great character once again Thomas Cain with a great run and an explosive finish from the edge of the box into the bottom corner, Billy Walker made it 4-4 just before Half Time. The question was who's striker was going to get their hat trick first?
After the break Waterloo's Jake Steward took a freekick which hit the wall, he then regained possession took on 2-3 defenders and buried it 5-4 to the home side. Bradenham and Mattishall were awarded a penalty with 20 minutes left and Brandon King stepping up to secure his hat trick.
With ten minutes to go Taiye Duffield secured the 3 points for the visitors with a header from a corner kick. Waterloo never gave up and battled hard until the final whistle. Standout performers were Waterloo's Thomas Cain and Jake Steward, B&M's Brandon King and Rafa Jaou.
A great competitive game today showing there is a fine art to tackling. Eaton Park Corinthians (EPC) took the lead through Brad Beckett. Earsham replied straight away from the spot with Aidan Reeve.
Six minutes before half time EPC scored, Cameron Beazer curling a shot from 25 yards into the top corner. Half Time Earsham 1-2 Eaton Park Corinthians.
Within minutes of the second half kicking off EPC scored to make it 3-1 from a corner, headed in from Aaron Stock. Full credit goes to Earsham who never gave up and hit the post and the bar.
Stand out performers were Earsham's Scott Parrott & Brad Stark and Eaton Park Corinthians Cameron Beazer who came on in the first half and took control of the centre midfield.
Thomas Armes was the referee today and was excellent controlling a very competitive and physical game.
This was a game of two halves, Marsh winning the first half 2-1 and West Norwich Wanderers winning the second 4-0.
West Norwich Wanderer’s took the lead with Tyler White being put through 1 on 1, taking it round the keeper and putting it into an empty net. Jordan Haywood equalised for Marsh with a close-range effort after a scramble in the box. Just before half time Marsh were given a penalty and this executed with confidence from Elis Stackwood.
West Norwich Wanderers took the 2nd half by storm scoring a quick fire double to take the lead 3-2, both scored by Ramsey Gushut (Rambo). Bradley Yates scored a 35 yard free kick, the question only Bradley can answer, was it a cross or a shot? Charlie Downing made it 5-2 to the Wanderers 5 minutes before full time.
We started today’s game with a minute silence in memory of the sad passing of Ray Watling. It was a
very competitive game today with Eaton Wanderers wining 4-1. Woodton United took the lead in
the 1 st minute through Louie Trindle. The early goal scored woke the elephants up and within 15
minutes equalised through Thomas Blanch. It was a close midfield battle 20 minutes after the
equaliser until a few minutes before half time a goal scored by Charlie Blake from outside of the area
which was the highlight of the game. Eaton Wanderers took control in the second half with further
goals from Charlie Hagg and Ben Atkins.
Plenty of goals again in our MOTD choice.
In hot conditions today it was great game of football to watch, Marlborough playing their first game at their new home, Britannia Barracks, against an Old Catton side who returned to the NDSL last week after a season's absence. It was Old Catton who took the spoils even after some great saves from the home goal keeper Ben Chamberlain. Brace's for Old Catton’s Billy Symonds & Tyler Rolfe helped Old Catton run out 7 - 2 winners.
We picked a cracker to start the season off with a 10 goal thriller. It was a great competitive game viewed today with Wensum Helles taking their chances in front of goal with an outstanding goalkeeping performance from Wensun Helles Scott Alden. Stand out highlights was a brace from Wensum Helles Harrison Mclean & Eddie Harrison and from Frettenham a 30 yard lob scored by Dexter Garratt. A special thanks to Referee Tristan Sykes who made a great debut for the NDSL.
