East Harling v Fakenham Town Reserves

Great match but not so great scoreline, promotion prospects dented

0 for 3 against East Harling who are turning out to be our bogey team. At least this time we got on the scoresheet, 3 goals in our games is normally enough for the win but not this time. For a change, the weather was glorious, sunny and warm, the pitch grassy but horribly bobbly and the Reserves up for it. There was almost a perfect start after 8 minutes when Joe Harrison broke clear, clear line onto goal to the left of the area and Jamie Woodcock, the Harling keeper brought him down about an inch outside the area. He got booked, free kick awarded but nothing came of it. End to end stuff, very competitive with chances at both ends but mainly the Reserves pressing forward. So a nasty surprise when Harling took the lead after 18 minutes. Corner ball into the area, marking broke down and the Harling player left in front of goal for a tap-in. The Reserves responded really well and the equaliser came after 25 minutes when Joe Harrison scored with a header from a Lane corner. Back came Harling and, on 30 minutes they retook the lead when a Lane backpass intended for Richard Bond in the Fakenham goal went straight to Oliver Ramsbotham who gave Bond no chance from 5 metres out. Again Fakenham responded with Callum Brain scoring in the 35th minutes when Harrison outjumped a Harling defender to flick the ball onto Brain who made a 30 metre run to the Harling area, took the ball wide and beat the keeper with a great finish. So 2-2 at half time and a good half for Fakenham apart from, in effect, giving the opposition their 2 goals. The second half started with both teams again very competitive and it was Fakenham this time who made the breakthrough after 54 minutes when an Ian Bulley cross reached Joe Harrison whose shot hit the post and Callum Brain was first to react to put the ball into the net. Fakenham lead, first time in 2 and a half games against Harling but that didn't last long when 6 minutes later it was Harling with the next score when (again) a corner found an unmarked Harling player whose header hit the crossbar and bounced down and was cleared. Unfortunately the ball had crossed the line and after the nod from the lineman, the referee awarded the goal. Both teams now were going for the win and it was Harling that scored the vital goal after 71 minutes when a long throw on the right into the Fakenham area was headed on and Kamren Senior, at the back post, was on hand to head it back into the goal. At this stage, the Fakenham players, still battling away, just knew that it wasn't (again) to be their day and, try as they could, the chances created just wouldn't go in. The best chance right at the death came from a superb Bulley cross which fizzed towards the far post and Ben Darby was inches away from getting a leg to it as it went for a goalkick. The Reserves still retain 2nd place but East Harling and Poringland Wanderers are breathing down their necks and with still some tough games to come, the team need to respond on Tuesday night in their last home game of the season against Gayton United. It is not going to help that 3 of the team left the pitch nursing injuries which put them in doubt for Tuesday. It will be a test of character for the team but they won't give up easily. #COYG
