Match Report v Newmarket Town (h)

Long Melford 2 - 1 Newmarket Town

Thurlow Nunn Premier - Saturday 03 February 2018 - Att: 82

PICTURED: Hassan Ally scored a dramatic last minute winner today, as Melford came from behind to beat a Newmarket Town side who scored 9 goals in their previous 2 matches. 

Match report from Chenoberet...

Another great performance from Melford, stealing all the points in added time when a draw seemed the likely outcome. 

Melford had in goal debutant Tim Brown a young keeper with previous experience at Canvey and Maldon & Tiptree. 

The game was played at pace and flowed from end to end, with Newmarket bossing the first period and Melford having a fair share of the second half. 

Only three minutes into the game and Melford had a great chance when Ben Judge, who impressed throughout, found space in the Newmarket box but his shot was blocked and keeper Alex Archer collected the loose ball. 

This was followed by Hassan Ally getting through on goal but his shot was turned round the post by the visiting keeper. 

Gradually Newmarket started to find some control with the experienced Steve Spriggs being the main provider and schemer. 

After 12 minutes they narrowly missed taking the lead, a cross from Spriggs and a flashing header from Scott Patterson which grazed the Melford bar. 

The Jockeys took the lead after 25 minutes, a long ball over the Melford back line saw LEWIS WHITEHEAD fire home on the angle. 

Chances fell at both ends just before half time, Spriggs saw his shot pushed onto the bar by keeper Brown whilst at the other end a cross from Dan Smith saw a David Lopez header inches wide. 

Straight from the half time resumption and Melford could have levelled, Hassan Ally squared for Lewis Haughton but the Melford striker's shot was saved by the keeper's foot. 

At the other end Newmarket forced four corners in eight minutes but these were well controlled by the Melford defence. 

Play swung to the other end and Melford were awarded three free kicks in five minutes, the first one from Lopez was headed off the goal line, but the third one from Lopez produced some success with ROSS WAUGH heading firmly into the net. 

Absorbing Newmarket pressure Melford almost went ahead after 85 minutes when an Anthony Waugh close range flick ended up in the arms of Archer the visiting keeper. 

As added time arrived with people starting to leave the ground, Melford snatched the winner. 

A mercurial forward run by Steve Adams, saw the ball rebound around the Newmarket box until HASSAN ALLY crashed the ball into the net. 

Despair for The Jockeys and extreme jubilation for The Villagers.
