Ransomes Sports

A frustrating afternoon for the Club, with the 1st team suffering a 1-0 home defeat against Wickham Market and the Reserves going down 3-1 at Framlingham.
Ransomes started pretty well in the Wickham game, creating a few chances and did have the ball in the net when Morris ran free and slipped the ball to Todd to finish, but a quick chat between lino and referee Scrivener correctly saw the goal ruled out for offside. Ransomes continued to press and when Calver was held back when trying to connect with one of the few decent balls we put into the box, a penalty was given and up stepped Morris, only to give a couple of high-flying gulls a bit of a fright as he blazed over. One or two more chances went begging and you could sense Wickham beginning to think that there might be something in this for them. Goalless at the break was disappointing for the home side and it soon got worse as a needlessly given away free kick was pinged into the Ransomes box, cleverly flicked on and then neatly tucked away by a second header. Ransomes huffed and puffed a bit after that and although the introduction of Buckle, Barrett & Deacon did bring a bit more energy, anything we did manage to get on target was comfortably dealt with by Louis Johnson in the visitor’s goal in a great display. He thoroughly deserved to keep the clean sheet and secure his team the win, along with the other Wickham lads who battled really well over the piece. Thanks to them for a well-contested, sporting game and to the evergreen Maurice Scrivener for his impressive and effective approach in the middle.
The Reserves are going through a bit of a difficult spell at the moment and had nothing to show for their efforts against Fram “A”. 1-1 at half time with Man-of-the-Match Keiron Leggett the Ransomes scorer, it ended up a disappointing 3-1 defeat, numerous chances being squandered and not quite as tight in defence as we might have been. That was a big win for Fram to keep them in the mix. So a little wobble for the Reserves over the last couple of weeks, but they still head the table and it’s all in their hands. Next Saturday sees the 1st team travel to take on Division 1 toppers Old Newton, with the Reserves at home to Ufford Sports Reserves. Both games kick off at 2.30pm.
