Capel Plough FC

The first team got back to winning ways on Saturday after a 3-1 win away to Bramford United with the three points pushing us up one place in the league table to fifth. With wind advantage we dominated the first half missing several chances before striker Daniel Alderson put us in front just before the break running from thirty yards out with the ball and slotting home for a well taken goal. Skipper Shaun Webb scored the second converting an Alderson cross ten minutes after the break which was his tenth goal of the season. With fifteen minutes remaining referee Maurice Scrivener awarded the home side a penalty which some of our players thought was a bit harsh with Kieran Lawler receiving a yellow card before the spot kick was taken. Adam Steel fired an unstoppable penalty into the top corner and it was game on but not before Lawler was heading for the showers after talking too much which resulted in a red card. We then introduced Matt Easton which was a welcome sight for the travelling Plough supporters. Matt suffered a groin injury pre season and this was his first appearance this season and he steadied the ship with some timely tackles as Bramford pushed forward looking for the equaliser. Kieran Mandley brought a good save from Ashley Foxhall and fired just wide before a freekick in the last minute saw Danny Garrard bend the ball round the wall into the corner for an excellent strike to wrap up the points. This was our tenth league win of the season and with seven defeats we have yet to draw a game which I must say is a bit unusual. Manager Nathan Burrell not for the first time this season had four players call off on the morning of the match including keeper Ryan Bedingfield so we had our fourth different keeper in our last five games between the sticks in the muscular shape of forty something Ashley Foxhall who did not let us down handling the ball well and making a couple of decent saves. Tom Barnes and Scott Cooke played well in defence while Alfie Smith had another good game in midfield. Garrard was lively up front alongside Daniel Alderson who worked hard and deserved his goal and was unlucky when one of his other efforts hit the crossbar. Our opponents worked hard in defence with Moss and Urso doing well but lacked a bit of firepower up front having a couple of forwards unavailable on the day Referee Maurice Scrivener had a decent game in the middle having few problems with the players and to be honest we can have no complaints with the sending off which was our fourth in the last six games which is nothing to be proud off. On the injury front Gary Collins who has been out for most of season is still several weeks away from a return while our other missing defender son Stephen(Morro) Morrison is still living the dream working in thirty degree heat in Thailand as a diving instructor. Alright for some then !
Finally I would like to wish all those involved in local football a Happy New Year and hope that my mate Scoop enjoyed his sprouts !
