UEA 3, Bradenham Wanderers 1

BRADENHAM gave a poor account of themselves on Saturday in the Norfolk Junior Cup against a well-organised UEA side at Colney. Neither side was able to assert any real superiority in the first half and the score remained at 0-0 at half-time.

On 55 minutes UEA took the lead after a mix-up in the Bradenham defence and 10 minutes later the students' left-winger went on a clever run, beating a couple of defenders before scoring from an acute angle.

A period of intense Bradenham pressure ensued without creating any clear-cut chances, but they did pull one back after a goalmouth melee.

More Bradenham pressure followed as they tried desperately to level the scores but the inevitable happened when the home defence humped a long clearance up-field and their centre forward controlled the ball and scored with ease.

Bradenham performed well below their normal standard, but UEA had obviously done their homework and are wished good luck in the remainder of the competition.
