Fawley AFC v Newport IoW 10/10/18

Fawley AFC 0 Newport Iow 2

NEITHER side showed real urgency in the opening exchanges, although Fawley probably had the better of the game, but the shots were somewhat wayward and failed to trouble the visiting custodian. The best chance of a lacklustre half came from Ollie Bradley which was well saved by Ryan Hall, at the Clubhouse End Newport’s George Holmes threatened to get an opener, but the Oilers defence thwarted the chance and, in another move, Tom Parker-Trott saved well. A somewhat elaborate overhead kick from Southwick ended the half. HT 0-0

Holmes started where he had left off and again the AFC Bournemouth Academy keeper Parker-Trott made a good save, and close to the hour mark made an even more impressive save when Joe Craig’s through ball was curled goalwards by skipper Jared Wetherick. Craig and Wetherick both came close but found the Fawley stopper in good form. With just ten minutes left, Fawley had a good opportunity to score. Breaking in from the right Tom Munday fired goalwards but could only hit the side netting. Minutes later WETHERICK was able to lash the ball home after some bagatelle work in the home penalty area to put ‘port in the driving seat. It was somewhat surprising that they extended their lead in the final minute of normal time when WETHERICK again was in the right place at the right time curling a shot beyond the outstretched arm of Parker-Trott. FT 0-2
