Coggeshall Town picked up a good point on the road at Godmanchester in a tough encounter which they played virtually the whole of the second half with 10 men. As the match got underway it was clear it wasn’t going to be much of a spectacle as the condition of the Godmanchester pitch was atrocious. The match was very even during the opening exchanges with both teams putting in lots of effort to try and break the deadlock. It was the visitors who got their noses in front after 25 mins with Tyler Brampton finishing well after a decent move down the right hand side, this was his second goal in two games after his move to Coggeshall from Waltham Abbey last week. Godmanchester came back well for the remainder of the half but “ The Towns “ defence held out until the break to go in with a one goal lead.
In the opening minutes of the second half Coggeshall were reduced to 10 men after Nnamdi Nwachuku was harshly sent off by the referee who at this stage was loosing control of the match. It was backs to the wall for Coggeshall for the remainder of the game. Only some tremendous defending from Jamie Shaw, Jacob Partridge and Luke Wilson kept out Godmanchester from getting back on level terms during a second half which “ The Town “ spent long spells defending in. It was heart break for Coggeshall though after battling away for the whole of the second half a man down they conceded a equalising goal with virtually the last kick of the game.
Although disappointed to have let the late goal in it was a point gained after the team had given everything against a very strong side who would have been tough opponents to play with eleven players on the pitch let alone 10. The team are back at West Street this week on Tuesday night when Hadleigh are the visitors, followed by Fakenham also at home on a Saturday.
