Foxton vs West Wratting - League - 17.04.24

Foxton suffered a 4-2 home defeat against West Wratting on Wednesday.

The game started very lively with both sides going for it; Wratting shot wide on 2 mins, Kaane shot over for Foxton on 4 mins and then Mez had a powerful shot saved on 10.

It was Wratting who took the lead on 20 minutes, with a close-range finish after a couple of errors in the Foxton box. 

Foxton didn’t let their heads drop and were soon level when Kaane finished well after good play from Jake.

Foxton then had an opportunity to take the lead, but the away keeper saved well from Kane’s effort.

HT 1-1

The second half didn’t start well for Foxton, conceding in the 50 and 54th minute to find themselves 3-1 down.

Wratting had their tails up and looked a threat when attacking, but Foxton managed to withstand this added pressure and pulled a goal back of their own on the 60th minute, when Kaane got his second of the game, heading home Evers’s cross. 

Callum Harrison, who was playing against his former club, nearly equalised immediately after but his stinging first time shot was well saved by the Wratting keeper. 

Foxton we’re now on top and pushing for an equalising goal, which looked to be a certainty on 70 minutes as ball fell kindly to Stuart in the penalty box, but his right footed shot came back of the legs of the keeper. 

Moments later, and Callum was again involved in the next attack when Evers picked him out down the left, his persistence opened the door for Antwan, but he could only shoot over from inside the box. 

Unfortunately, despite Foxtons best efforts, it was Wratting who increased their lead in the 80th minute with a soft goal from a corner, (Possibly went straight in or a deft touch I’m unsure), none the less it was 4-2 and game over.
