Bradenham Wanderers maintain winning form

Hellesdon 1, Bradenham Wdrs 3

Bradenham recorded their third successive league win, against second from bottom Hellesdon in Anglian Combination Division One on Saturday.

Bradenham put Hellesdon under early pressure with a succession of corners and free-kicks which they failed to convert. A couple of long throws from Liam Stockell caused panic in the Hellesdon defence, but again Bradenham failed to score.

In the 20th minute Hellesdon took the lead when a cross from the right was headed home by an unmarked centre forward.

Towards the end of the half Chris Miller failed to convert a cross from Karl Bush and Tullis missed with a header when well placed. Bradenham had a goal disallowed when Stockell headed home only for it to be ruled offside.

In the 55th minute Bradenham equalised when a shot from Bush deceived the home keeper and dropped in the net. Bradenham continued to create chances and Rob Thurley went close with three good efforts, one of which brought a great save from the home keeper. Rick Melton went close with a good header from a Matt Miller cross.

With seven minutes to go Bradenham took the lead when Chris Miller scored with a left footed shot.
