Bradenham Wanderers 3, Beccles Caxton 1

WANDERERS got back to winning ways against a competitive, sometimes combative Beccles Caxton at Hale Road on Saturday.

The visitors started brightly with a couple of chances, the first of which was pushed round the post by home keeper Butters.

They then had a 'goal' disallowed for offside. For the Bulldogs, Palin shot past a post when well placed, Bush shot wide and a shot by Hancy was well saved by the Caxton keeper.

On the half-hour mark Woodcock hit an excellent volley over the keeper and into the net to open the scoring, and a couple of minutes later Bush made it two for Brdenham with a close-range shot.

Within a few minutes of the restart Palin added to the score with a skilful lob over the keeper.

Beccles looked likely to open their account with a two-on-one situation but some skilful jockeying by Woodcock between two attackers saved the day for Bradenham.

Hancy had a couple of chances for the home side, the first a close-range shot which was well saved by the keeper, then a header which went over after a fine

free-kick by Bush.

Hancy was having a fine game and he back-headed a cross into the danger area where Dagg headed wide.

On the hour mark the visitors scored from a well-struck free-kick just outside the area, and for a while they took the initiative.

Eventually, Bradenham started to take control again and a fine corner from Woodcock was headed over by Frappell.

Just before the end Hancy went on a determined run but his final shot was off the mark.

Melton had a particularly fine game at the heart of the Bradenham defence

and keeper Butters had the sort of game that will have given his defence a great deal of confidence.

On Saturday, Wanderers visit Norwich CEYMS (ko 2.30pm) who lead Anglian Combination Division Two. They have 51 points from 24 games to fourth-placed Bradenham's 42 from 18.
