East Harling 4-0 Sprowston Athletic …

East Harling 4-0 Sprowston Athletic
The first team entertained the lowly placed Norwich side looking to complete the league double over the blue boars.
There was a first team debut for midfielder Elliot Gibson in place of the injured Barnett and Hutcherson made his first start for the greens following his move to the club a couple of weeks ago. He took his place in the heart of the defence alongside Bareham.
First team skipper Durrant returned to the squad following suspension and he was joined on the substitutes bench by 16 year old Huey Turner-Saint who has been impressive for the club’s youth side.
The home team made a quick start with Allin and Senior combining well to create an opening which saw Allin fire straight at the visiting keeper.
Senior then beat his man twice but ran out of room to get a shot away whilst Holt found himself in the clear but saw the away keeper make a fine block to deny him.
Moments later the home side did find the opening goal, a Scent corner found Bareham but his header was well saved only for Holt to slam home the loose ball for 1-0.
Gibson then combined well with Morris but shot wide and Hutcherson came within inches of heading in a looping delivery.
The lead was doubled just before half time when full back Suggitt overlapped down the right to fire a superb strike into the bottom corner of the net.
The half time whistle was blown and the ref bought a first half dominated by the Greens to a close.
5 minutes into the second half and the home side made a triple substitution.
Johnson, Holt and Bareham were replaced by Durrant, Wetteland and Turner-Saint.
The youngster got straight to work and showed great skill to go round 2 defenders before driving his shot well wide.
Moments later Turner-Saint had a second go at goal but saw his effort brilliantly blocked by a central defender.
Harling were camped in the away half for the remainder of the game with keeper Woodcock not having to make a single save.
Turner-Saint then combined well with Gibson to supply a pinpoint cross into the box for Wetteland to score a header from 10 yards out.
Wetteland soon doubled his tally for the day after seizing on a defensive error to expertly guide the left foot strike across the keeper into the bottom corner.
The remaining minutes saw the home side keep possession really well to kill the game off and take all 3 points.
In all a pleasing day but with three huge games coming up the team know they need some positive results to stay in the promotion hunt along with the other clubs in the top 8.
Well done all……
