Match Report

Coggeshall Town earned another impressive 3 points on the road at Yarmouth with an excellent all round team display. It looked a tough fixture with such a long trip midweek but the team stood up to the test and responded perfectly. Conditions were good with the playing surface looking reasonable especially after the recent poor weather. Coggeshall started well and had the better of the opening exchanges as they looked to continue their fine run of form.The visitors were creating lots of chances with Nnamdi Nwachuku causing the Yarmouth defence lots of problems. Coggeshall went close on several occasions with Tom Monk and Conor Hubble both forcing saves from the home team’s keeper. Coggeshall continued to press but couldn’t force the opening goal until a real moment of magic from George Cocklin broke the deadlock. The busy midfielder won the ball on the half way line and carried it forward to play a pass into Nwachuku, he turned his man to play a delightful through ball to Cocklin who drove into the box past a defender to smash the ball into the far corner. The goal was well worked and finished brilliantly by Cocklin to give “ The Town “ a deserved lead. Coggeshall continued to dominate their opponents up till half time without adding to the scoreline.

The second half began with Yarmouth looking more dangerous as they tried to push more men forward. This created a more end to end game but it still looked more likely that Coggeshall would score the all important second goal. The home team had more of the ball in the second half but rarely threatened James Bransgrove in the Coggeshall goal with Jack Hayes and Jamie Shaw looking very solid in front of him at the heart of the defence. Coggeshall scored goal number two on the hour after some good link up play between Kamal Guthmy and Conor Hubble put Nwachuku through on goal who finished well from just inside the box. The second goal looked to have put “ The Town “ well in control as Yarmouth still hadn’t really created any clear cut chances. As the match entered the final stages Yarmouth had their best spell and forced Bransgrove into one excellent save tipping the ball round the post to keep his teams clean sheet and secure a well earned three points on the road. The performance was a real team effort with every member of the squad playing their part to secure another win. The team now have back to back home games starting Saturday when Long Melford are the visitors to West Street. The players and management team would like to thank all those who made the long trip to support the team, it really is appreciated.
