As the first half progressed ” The Town ” started to create some good openings with Aaron Cosgrove going close on a couple of occasions and Conor Hubble testing the keeper from distance. Yarmouth seemed happy to defend as Coggeshall kept probing to try and find a way through, as the half went on it looked more likely that the home team would get their noses in front, as only some desperate defending and some good saves from the Yarmouth keeper kept the scores level.As the As the half-time whistle sounded the deadlock had not been broken so the scores were level at the break 0-0.Coggeshall looked full of purpose as the second half started and looked really threatening going forward.They really started to pin Yarmouth into their own half and it only looked at
Coggeshall looked full of purpose as the second half started and looked really threatening going forward. They really started to pin Yarmouth into their own half and it only looked at matter of time before the opening goal would come. Coggeshall went close several times with Nnamdi Nwachuku starting to cause problems for the Yarmouth defenders. Hubble again went close from a freekick and Danny Scott couldn’t quite convert at the far post after a deep cross from Kamal Guthmy. Coggeshall made a change on the hour with new signing Jamie Age coming on for Jamie Shaw to make his debut for the club. Coggeshall finally got the goal they had been looking for and it was worth waiting for, after a cross into the Yarmouth box was cleared to just outside the box the ball fell to George Cocklin who smashed a left foot shot straight back into the top corner of the net giving the keeper no chance to save. It was a great goal and was well deserved as ” The Town ” had been totally dominant. The goal seemed to kill off the Yarmouth spirit and Coggeshall looked like scoring more every time they attacked.Goal number two soon followed, this time Cocklin was the provider after he crossed into the box for new signing Jamie Age to head home with a great finish for a debut goal. The home team played out the remainder of the game in comfortable fashion to pick up another home win and keep themselves in second spot in the league table.
