Match Report v Stowmarket Town

Long Melford 1 - 2 Stowmarket Town

Thurlow Nunn Premier - Sat 14 Oct 2017 - Att: 102

Against the star spangled Stowmarket Town, struggling Melford were not to be easily overcome. Despite the visitors having a large share of possession, with some better luck The Villagers would have taken something from the match.

In the opening minutes Melford made the stronger impression with George Day firing wide with two efforts. 

After 24 minutes Stowmarket failed to convert two golden chances, with Amar Lewis seeing his shot blocked at the foot of the post and highly rated striker Josh Mayhew having his effort foiled by the resolute Melford defence. 

On 35 minutes Darren Moyes the Melford keeper went up to catch a floated cross, a Stowmarket player appeared to jump into him and as a result Moyes was treated for nearly five minutes, eventually hobbling to continue in the game. 

A Will Wingfield shot at the other end was headed away by Jon Carver to keep Melford at bay. Just on the stroke of half time Mayhew blazed wide from a good position for the visitors. 

The Villagers started the second half with striker George Day in goal, replacing the injured Moyes, and Callum Hemson was brought on from the bench. 

Out of the blue the goal arrived after 49 minutes Melford allowed OLLIE BROWN to run some thirty yards without challenge, and his shot from 25 yards hard and low nestled into the corner of the net. 

That spurred Melford forward and the tricky Hassan Ally got beyond the Stow back line, his well struck shot was saved courtesy of the leg of keeper James Bradbrook as he dived to make the save. 

Again Ally got free down the left and his cross found Callum Hemson and from two yards out Hemson completely missed his kick, two very good chances that were not converted. 

On 66 minutes Melford levelled from the penalty spot, Ally again got through on goal and three yards out he was taken down from behind, a clear penalty. 

The kick was taken by WILL WINGFIELD and was initially parried out by keeper Bradbrook only for Wingfield to fire home the rebound from two yards.

As is almost a trademark of Melford unfortunately they presented Stowmarket with their winner, a sloppy half way line pass was given to Stowmarket and the ball quickly transferred to JOSH MAYHEW who fired home from the right flank. 

After a hefty challenge Scott Sloots had to hobble off and Melford were then reduced to ten men for the last 15 minutes having used all of their substitutes. 

Just time left for Melford stand in keeper George Day to save from Jack Baker and Mayhew.

A good effort from Melford in tough circumstances and they will hope for a bit more luck when they meet Haverhill Borough on Wednesday at Stoneylands. CHENOBERET
