Match Report v Newmarket Town

Newmarket Town 2 - 3 Long Melford

Thurlow Nunn Premier - Saturday 11 November - Att: 71

PICTURED: Melford captain Steve Adams has scored 4 goals in 5 matches since switching from centre back to centre forward last month.

This was Melford's best result of the season so far, fighting back from two goals down despite missing a penalty - beating a Newmarket side who would have moved into the top three with a win today. Match report from Chenoberet:

The Jockeys who seemed to have won the race after the first minute of the second half, stumbled thereafter at every hurdle as the magnificent Melford team overcame the odds to battle to a great victory, and earn a well deserved three points. 

It was a morale sapping start for Melford when after five minutes they conceded the first goal. A ball swung into the Melford box saw the Melford defence seemingly disarmed by the 3G bounce, the ball bounced through to star signing STEVE SPRIGGS on the right flank and he made no mistake from five yards out. 

Straight away Melford went to the other end and a cross ball from Dan Swain found Nathan Rowe, but his header was safely saved by Alex Archer in the home goal. 

Whilst Melford tried to build with short passing the home team relied on sweeping passes to the flanks where Spriggs and Scott Paterson, were able to trouble the Melford defence. After 24 minutes Melford were lucky not to concede further when a series of shots were blocked near the goal line, with the best chance falling to Jack Watson but his header went over the bar.

Then Spriggs again got free but Darren Moyes made to two decent saves to keep the scoreline intact. 

Straight from the second half kick off Newmarket increased their lead (46 minutes) a long ball found STEVE SPRIGGS free and he fired home from ten yards. 

Despite these setbacks Melford were far from finished and the golden chance to get a goal back arrived after 51 minutes. Nathan Rowe got in on goal behind keeper Archer, who pulled at his boots and brought him down. 

Due to the modern rule changes, as a penalty was awarded the keeper only got a yellow card ( where is the logic in this?) and got into position for the Melford penalty. The kick taken by Will Wingfield was parried out by keeper Archer and despite two attempts on the rebound Melford failed to find the net. 

This setback acted as a spur to Melford and after 58 minutes good work by Hassan Ally saw his pass find STEVE ADAMS and his shot hit the back of the net. 

It was Melford who now started to look like promotion contenders, with Newmarket in a state of panic. 

The next goal came after 65 minutes when a pin point cross from the impressive Dan Smith found STEVE ADAMS who headed powerfully home. 

The killer blow for Newmarket came after 86 minutes when a Will Wingfield cross found Adams and his headed effort hit the bar and the loose ball found the net via a home defender, under pressure from Adams. 

The Match Official who somehow found six minutes added time, which added to the agony of underdogs Melford but they survived to take all three points. 

MELFORD: 1 Darren Moyes, 2 Dan Smith, 3 Josh Collins, 4 Elliot Walker, 5 Ross Waugh, 6 Anthony Waugh, 7 Hassan Ally, 8 Dan Swain, 9 Steve Adams, 10 Nathan Rowe, 11 Will Wingfield 

Subs: Louis Donovan Perry (for Ally, 90), Ben Judge (for Wingfield, 87) Callum Hemson (for Rowe, 61) 

Melford M.O.M: Dan Smith

  • It was a very different story at Stoneylands where Newmarket's reserve side were emphatic 8-0 winners in the Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup.
