Coggeshall Town picked up another victory with a battling display away at Stowmarket. The visitors went into an early lead after a header at the far post from skipper Luke Wilson looped into the far corner. The goal came after a spell of sustained pressure from Coggeshall who had pressed Stowmarket back in the opening stages. The lead was short lived though with the home team getting back on level terms soon after. The match was a tight affair for the remainder of the half with James Bransgrove making a excellent save to keep “ The Town “ on level terms. At the other end Jack Curtis went close from distance and Ross Wall headed over from close range as both teams looked to try and get back in front. The half-time break arrived with the scores level at 1-1. Coggeshall started the second half well and started to dominate the possession more with Stowmarket relying on
Coggeshall started the second half well and started to dominate the possession more with Stowmarket relying on break aways which the Coggeshall defence handled well marshalled by goal scorer Wilson. Coggeshall started to take control of the midfield areas with George Cocklin and Daniel Cunningham catching the eye putting in a real shift to keep the visitors on top. As the visitors had more possession Nnamdi Nwachuku started to have more of an influence as he threatened the Stowmarket backline on many occasions. Coggeshall were having the better of things without creating a clear-cut opening to get back in front. As the match entered the last 10 minutes Aaron Cosgrave broke away down the right-hand side where he was pulled down by a Stowmarket defender, the referee gave a freekick out wide which Daniel Cunningham stood over in preparation to deliver into the penalty area. The ex Stowmarket player who had joined Coggeshall only 3 weeks ago, stepped up to put a tremendous ball into the box which ended up with a Stowmarket defender and their keeper getting in each other’s way only to help the ball into the empty net. It was nothing more than Coggeshall had deserved as they had been the better team in the second half as Stowmarket had been happy to sit back and defend for long periods. Coggeshall saw out the remainder of the match out quite comfortably with only one scare at their end but Jacob Partridge cleared well under pressure as Stowmarket tried to force a late equaliser. The final whistle went meaning “ The Town “ picked up a very Important 3 points on the road at a very tough place to get a result.
