Wells lose ground to fellow strugglers

Wells Town 0, Wymondham Town 3

This was a match both sides needed to win – and unfortunately for Wells the visitors netted three times in the last 15 minutes to move clear of the Seasiders at the bottom of the Anglian Combination Premier Division table.

Both sides started well but the defences were in control as a breakthrough failed to arrive.

The Wymondham keeper pulled off several top class saves to keep the scores level at the interval, and at that stage the match looked as though a share of the spoils would be the order of the day.

But in the 75th minute David Ramsbottom broke and slotted home with ease – and within minutes the same player had added his second.

In the 90th minute Wymondham introduced Luke Rackham who soon added a third as the visitors moved six points clear of Wells at the bottom.

Wells travel to Blofield on Saturday (kick off 2pm). Wells Reserves host Buxton at Beach Road (2pm).
