Wells Town put the disappointment of last week’s Norfolk Junior Cup exit behind them with a solid display at Mattishall Reserves, coming away with an emphatic 5-1 win.

The Seasiders welcomed James Frary back in to the squad while there was a starting position for Ash Quantrill, who has moved to the club from Redgate.

The match started with both teams looking to play quick football. Wells keeper Aaron Watson was brought in to action early as he tipped a goalbound shot around the post before Luke Goss broke the deadlock when his curling shot found the back of the home net.

Frary fired an outstanding shot past the keeper to give Wells a two-goal cushion going in to the break.

Wells started the second half in control and an overhead kick by Matt Pooley gave the keeper no chance. With the score 3-0, a mix-up in defence let the hosts pull a goal back before Goss netted his second.

Ross Brewster added his first and the team’s fifth to kill off the contest.

It’s cup action this weekend as Wells travel to Sprowston Athletic on Saturday (2pm).

Wells Town Reserves were beaten 3-1 at home by Thorpe Village.

Wells s started this contest in fine form and could have scored five goals in the first period as they ran the visitors ragged. With the score at 0-0 going into the interval all was still to play for.

The second half was equally as good as the first and Josh Vertigan put Wells in the driving seat. The visitors equalised and the match looked to be heading a draw before Liam Pink was injured and the visitors scored two quick goals to take the points.

It’s Primary Cup action on Saturday as Wells Reserves take on Hingham Athletic Reserves at Beach Road (2pm).

In the Premier Division of the Anglian Combination Bradenham Wanderers were beaten 3-0 at home by early pacesetters Harleston, with Connor Delaney, Nicky Howell and Nathan Stone getting the goals.

Mattishall gave a good account of themselves against high-fiying Norwich CEYMS in the Norfolk Senior Cup, taking the game to extra-time before losing 4-2 (Tom Hill, Aaron Kay).

Mattishall visit Wroxham Reserves in the league on Saturday while Bradenham are with out a game.
