Match Report v Stowmarket Town (a)

STOWMARKET TOWN 5 - 1 LONG MELFORD

Thurlow Nunn Premier - Sat 28 April 2018

Most (if not all?) of the Stowmarket team have previously played at a higher level, so this was always going to be a tough match for Melford. 

A difficult task was made even harder without a specialist keeper but midfielder Scott Sloots (pictured) performed admirably between the sticks. Match report from Chenoberet...

Again hit by players not being available Melford were on the receiving end of a rampant home team who have won their last 9 matches. 

With all keepers injured or away, Melford had midfielder Scott Sloots in goal and he couldn't be faulted for any of the Stowmarket goals. 

As in recent games Melford created chances but seemed to lack in the finishing touch. 

The home team forced a number of early corners whilst at the other end David Lopez fired wide for Melford. 

After 28 minutes Stowmarket went ahead, good work by Remi Garrett set up top scorer JOSH MAYHEW to head past Sloots, to add to his formidable goal tally. 

On three occasions Melford worked themselves into the Stowmarket box, but there seemed a reluctance from the Melford team to pull the trigger.

After 40 minutes the home team added to the score when REMI GARRETT scored from close range via a Melford defender. 

Melford then had a good chance when Will Wingfield fired over the bar from close range. 

In the final first half minute Stowmarket added to their score when hesitation in the Melford defence allowed LUKE READ to net from close range. 

And so the second half started with Melford on the attack, a long David Lopez throw found Steve Adams on the near post, and his header was forced into the net by WILL WINGFIELD from close range. 

The home team added to their score after 54 minutes when JOSH MAYHEW fired home from 25 yards. 

On 74 minutes with the Melford defence in a muddle JOSH MAYHEW scored his hat trick firing into an unprotected goal from twenty yards. 

To their credit Melford battled on with Hassan Ally hitting the post, and towards the end of the game Ally was brought down as it appeared to spectators in the penalty area, but the referee deemed it outside the area and the free kick was cleared by the home defence. 

A convincing if slightly flattering win for the home team whilst Melford will be concerned to be on the end of three heavy defeats in succession (two of those were away to top three sides - Ed)

MELFORD: Scott Sloots, Lewis Haughton, Josh Collins, David Lopez, Ross Waugh, Steve Adams, Hassan Ally, Jose Zarzoso-Hernandez, Will Wingfield, Nathan Rowe, Callum Hemson (73) 

Subs: Sam Newton (73) not used: Mike Onslow, Jamie Bradbury
