Seasiders’ proud run halted
Wymondham 4, Wells Town 1
The Seasiders’ 16-match undefeated run came to an abrupt end on Saturday.
The result leaves Wells top of Anglian Combination Division One with 46 points from 17 games to Wymondham’s 43 from 18.
Wymondham had done their homework and did not allow the Seasiders time on the ball, as they closed down any clear chances and were first to any loose ball.
The match was clearly over as a contest as early as the first half, as Wymondham raced into a 4-0 lead.
David Ramsbottom broke the deadlock on seven minutes. Luke Rackham hit a power shot past Molyneux on 15 minutes and another killer goal on 25 minutes before Robert Browne made it 4-0 on the half-hour.
Wells reduced the arrears on the stroke of half-time when Scott Sutherland-Gray converted a spot-kick.
