Football News – Woodbridge 1st XI Beat King’s Ely 2nd XI 2-0

27 Mar 18

King’s Ely have proven footballing credentials on the independent schools circuit; it was a wise choice all round for our firsts to play their seconds, and our seconds to play their thirds, and two cracking games ensued. The first team match began in febrile fashion which curtailed the quality of the football on display. Regular defender Nathan Lloyd and “stand-in” Olly Whiting had to be on sharp form to intercept a number of possible through balls as King’s made the early running. Nil-nil at half-time meant the game was on a knife-edge. Joe Farrall asserted greater influence and control in the second-half and there was better use of width; Will Clarke whipped in a cross that was missed by our first attacker but Seb Lamb was on hand to slot the ball home. A second Woodbridge goal came from a well-flighted set-piece delivery from Joe Farrall that was met with a towering header from Olly Whiting. There was a nervy end to the game with King’s pushing hard; Frank “Franky” Norman was on top form in goal and kept a well-earned clean sheet in his last appearance in a Woodbridge jersey. The game ended 2-0 to Woodbridge and the only sour note was an unfortunate knee injury to one of the visiting players; we wish him a full and speedy recovery. Over the season as a whole the 1st XI have made real progress; since Michaelmas Term we have played twelve competitive fixtures, winning six and losing six. A massive thank-you to all the boys involved for making it such an entertaining season.
