Match Report v Mildenhall Town (away)

MILDENHALL TOWN 3 - 0 LONG MELFORD

THURLOW NUNN PREMIER DIVISION - SATURDAY 7th DECEMBER

Jamie Griffiths played his 100th match for the club today.

The result was a tonic for under pressure Mildenhall who hadn't won at home since October, and they gave a debut to the much travelled goal poacher James Hall who joined this week from Godmanchester Rovers.

Melford torn by injuries and suspension were still minus six regulars, the Villagers stay in 4th despite losing their first away match since September. 

Melford opened by kicking down the slope with the home team operating with a fresh breeze on their backs. 

The first half was really a non event with both teams lacking in fluency, and creating little in the way of chances. 

For Mildenhall Joe Asenci and Matt Green put efforts wide, and Melford's best chance of the match came on 24 minutes a raking pass to the Melford left flank put Kyle Hurley in on goal but the advancing keeper Jake Heyhoe spread himself wide to block the youngster's shot, which went for a corner. 

A poor Melford defensive header allowed in Scott Chaplin after 33 minutes but his effort fizzed over the Melford box and out of play. 

The half time break and the valuable slope seemed to work well for Mildenhall and they improved greatly. 

With Melford more on the defensive the elusive goal arrived on 51 minutes a bit of defensive heading tennis from Melford, saw an attempted Melford clearing header fall to JAMES HALL, unmarked at the Melford left post, for a simple tap in. 

Melford looked to have got back into game on 83 minutes when a piledriver from Jacob Brown seemed goal bound, but a superb full length dive saw keeper Heyhoe touch the ball round the post. 

Pushing players forward in the last five minutes cost The Villagers dearly. Introduced over the PA system in the 84th minute as “the ginger Messi” substitute BEN NOLAN from an unmarked position fired in on the angle on 85 minutes, then within two minutes in a goal mouth scramble, Messi aka BEN NOLAN prodded home from two yards. 

A deserved victory for Mildenhall and by the loud applause at the end a welcome relief for supporters, although the scoreline was harsh on Melford. The Villagers will be hoping to get absent players back on the pitch as soon as possible.

LONG MELFORD: Matt Walker, Will Wingfield, Jake Jackson, Ben Judge, Steve Adams, Anthony Waugh, Callum Hemson, Jacob Brown, Kyle Hurley (75), Jamie Griffiths, Dan Swain

Subs: Haaris Khan (75) not used: Jamie Bradbury, Steve Chisholm
