Match Report v Great Yarmouth Town

Match Report

Great Yarmouth Town 2 - 2 Long Melford

Thurlow Nunn Premier - Sat 28 October - Att: 89

PICTURED: Hassan Ally scored the equaliser as 10-man Melford fought back from two goals down to earn a valuable away point.

This was Melford's third away match in the space of a week and having clocked up 250 miles on the road they will be pleased to have collected 7 points.

Melford were forced into several changes to the side that beat Ipswich Wanderers on Tuesday night - with six regulars missing due to injury, illness and holidays. 

But football has become a squad game and the players who came into the team today all impressed. Match report from Chenoberet: 

Melford showed extreme spirit, character and courage to pull back the two goals on a windswept Wellesey Ground, and deservedly left Norfolk with a share of the points.

With a gusting wind swirling in all directions, conditions were difficult for both teams. In the first minute a pass back to keeper Darren Moyes saw his restricted kick fall straight to Miles Palmer, his pass into the box found SEAN PERFECT and he stroked the ball into the net to give The Bloaters a 52 second lead. 

The Villagers bounced straight back, with a George Day inswinging corner being scrambled off the goal line, and minutes later Jack Whatmough was forced into a good save from the same player. 

Shortly after this the home keeper was injured in a collision, and was treated for several minutes, but was forced to retire from the game at half time. 

The best chance fell to Yarmouth after 32 minutes but somehow Aaron Sanders headed wide from a close position. 

As the first half drew to a close Melford were dealt a further blow when George Day was deemed by the referee to have made a dangerous challenge and was dismissed in the 41st minute. 

The home team started with a stand in keeper from the subs bench, Chris Holmes, who is normally a midfielder for the home club. 

Effort after effort was made by Melford to get back the deficit, Hassan Ally inches over the bar after great running by Nathan Rowe, who fought well down the flanks for Melford.

After 65 minutes Darren Moyes kept Melford in the game after Ben Lewis strode through the Melford defence and unleashed a fierce drive, which the Melford keeper dived full length to save. 

What looked like the killer blow arrived for Melford after 65 minutes after some neat passing by the home side, MITCH FORBES sidefooted home from five yards to give Yarmouth what might have looked like a victory goal. 

But the boys from Suffolk were made of sterner stuff, after a Dan Swain free kick had bounced around the box, the referee pointed to the spot for a handball. Up stepped WILL WINGFIELD to convert the kick after 68 minute and give Melford an added stimulus. 

On 75 minutes Melford were level, a great raking pass from Elliot Walker found HASSAN ALLY free in space down the Melford left flank and the Melford speedster cut in to fire home from the angle. 

This inspired Melford to look for the winner, but the nearest to that happening came at the other end with Moyes making a wonder-save from Mitch Forbes, and then Yarmouth hit the bar with a free kick only for Moyes to flick the follow up shot over the bar. 

In the end magnificent Melford with the Waugh Brothers the bastions of strength at the centre of their defence, deservedly went home to Suffolk with a share of the points. CHENOBERET
